i got it i put plumber tape around the treed i will try you service for one month
Pool and Spa Expert: David Bowden, Pool and Spa Certified replied 2 months ago

Okay... hopefully that will help for awhile. It is not uncommon for those threads to get cross threaded or strip out making it a problem over time.

If the plumbers tape doesn't work in the future you may want to try threading on a Brass or Galvanized nipple and see if you can cut in some cleaners thread, if not then try an expanding plug similar to capping off drain lines.
