It seems many people have problems with PVC pipes not sealing ,so I thought it might help to show how I sealed a fitting using epoxy putty.

There are many brands to choose from but I like AquaMend because it sets nice and fast even under water.I fixed this leak with out even switching off the pump.

I will check the instructions ,but it must be around 20 min.It`s way more sticky than Pratley`s so it`s much easier to work with.

I feel that PVC weld only fails because of poor preparation of the joint.Allways clean both surfaces befor applying the PVC weld.I will take some pics to night.
