Question about Water Heaters
This is probably just the plug that is used to prime the pump if it looses it's prime, but I can't be positive since your description is a bit vague. I suppose that if you thought it adjusted something that you would be reluctant to just tighten it. Go ahead and tighten it. If it still leaks, then do the following:
Get some teflon tape (ask for it in the plumbing section at home improvement store or hardware store - $2 or less) Get a helper (a child will do). Turn off the power to the pump. Turn on the water at the kitchen sink until it stops running, then turn it off again. Now remove the leaking screw. Some water will come rushing out, but have your helper push his/her thumb over the hole (don't put a small finger IN the hole). Wrap the teflon tape around the screw in a clockwise direction as viewed from the bottom of the screw. Wrap about 5 layers, nice and snug. Don't leave a loose end that will dangle from the bottom of the screw. Put the screw back in the hole, nice and tight. Good luck, Al K
