I have a brass spigot connected to a PVC pipe near the pump of my saltwater pool. There is a small leak and I was wondering if I can redo the connection using plumber's putty or tape. Would either of these be defeated by the saltwater?
I'm not totally sure about salt water, but I don't think it poses any special problem. I would give the threads 2 or 3 wraps, then also coat the female threads with pipe joint cement, not plumber's putty. Save the plumber's putty for drains and escutcheons.
