I'm at the end of my rope's.I continue have a small leak from the Hayworth Power-flo pump outlet on the 1.5 inch male PVC connection.I have teflon taped and taped and still can't get it to stop.I'm thinking about just going to the female screw down with a gasket if that is possible.Not even sure what size the outside threaded side is.Any suggestion's?

K,

You don't need tape, you need to use pump unions. They have an O-Ring on the threaded side..

They look like this...

Are they a 2in to 1.5 .There are pricey.Where is the best place to get them?Wondering if I could use a rubber gasket on the bottom of the adapter I have now.

Just went out to check on it .It's also leaking on the input on multivalve.Had to replace this section this morning because when I cut the pipe to tighten it up last week.Didn't get one of the 1.5 to 1.5 connection sealed good and was leaking.Uggg!!!!
