    Leak at spa suction fitting inground fiberglass pool

    I have located a leak in in my built in spa at the suction fitting. Looks like the hole is too big for the gasket. This pool was installed in July, everything is under warranty.

    - is it ok to fix this with silicone? This is what my installer is suggesting.

    I think both sides are leaking. I have attached some photos. I assume they were leaking all along but recently got worse. I am about to close my pool and would rather get this fixed now.

    Silicone will work, but will have to be redone occasionally. Epoxy putty has worked better for me.
