If a fitting is leaking, could you just put some teflon tape or something on it?

Yeah that's a good idea with the cup, or tape, or put a bucket under it or something so you can leave it and not worry about the cup spilling over or anything. Just until you get the new skimmer, it shouldn't be too much of a hassle.

I thought about that. Would tape work with a twist lock coupling?
It's a pretty slow drip. I don't wanna have to handle that stupid thing anymore then I have too.

Either tape or some silicone maybe? It's only a temporary thing lol.
