    Help! leak in hose

    We opened the pool today and after the workers left i found a leak in a hose coming from the pump. See picture attached. Its super small is there anything i can do to patch it or should i have the company come out to repair?

    I would replace it or have it replaced. A drop of PVC glue may get you by for a bit but I would guess that is just the tip of the proverbial iceberg.

    I was going to suggest If you have enough length, cut it above the hole and reattach, it's really easy to do... If not, try perhaps saran wrap, several layers overlapping tightly wrapped? Might not stop it but may slow it. You can buy those replacement hoses at several pool stores - buy extra to have on hand because they spring leaks easily.
