Question about Waterway Above Ground Hi Flo Pump
Just purchased a waterway pro-clean 125SF 2hp 2speed filter/pump. Both valves a leaking when pump runs.
The valves need tightening quite a bit. Take them off and wrap the PINK 1/2" teflon tape (Home Depot, Lowes) around them 3 to 4 times. Then take large wrenches, one to hold and one to tighten, and tighten them quite tight. If they still leak, turn off and tighten more. Eventually they will seal and stop leaking. Also, make sure, if they use them, that your O-rings are properly positioned.

Tips for a great answer:
Thank you for posting your question here on Fixya.com.
The cause for those parts to fail is almost always running dry or poor water flow. Check for things like partially closed valves, dirty filter(s), leaks in the pump allowing cavitation or poor plumbing with too many elbows stacked together as the cause. Your solution(s) will vary depending upon the cause of the failures.
