Sealants and lubricants are two of the most common items inside a pool man's tool bag. Sealants are used to plug up some leaks on a pool or on its equipment while lubes are used to grease up pool equipment o-rings.
Silicone-based lubes are best used for lubricating and preserving rubber parts in the pool system. Silicone lubes are very sticky and can stand very well in rushing water, heat, and chemicals. Teflon-based lubes are used d on pool o-rings on the pump lid and filter tank, or on things that need less friction. Teflon lubes cannot be used inside the pool or pool equipment because a sticky residue will be left on the tile. Kevlar or green pool lube is used on metal nuts and bolts, and also on brass fittings. Kevlar helps metal threads turn easily.
Plumbing piping connects various major components of the pool, including your basin, pump, water filter, drains, and return lines. Because most swimming pools use chlorine as the sanitizing agent, PVC plastic is commonly used for swimming pool plumbing and piping.
