    fix or replace leak in spa pipe

    I have a break in the pipe right outside of the spa wall. To find out, I had to tear out the concrete. The tear is large.

    The question is, what is the best way in fixing the leak? Should I replace the pipe or place some kind of sealer over the crack?

    Because the pipe is so close to the wall, it won't be easy to replace the pipe as i do not have much room between the wall and the leaking pipe. I presume I would have to remove the pipe completely, including the section that goes on the inside of the spa. Any suggestions on how best to do this?

    I've attached a photo. The crack is visible and is shown within the circle.

    Many thanks to all.

    Re: fix or replace leak in spa pipe

    There is a company kbi that makes a product call snap-fix which glues over the crack and seals the pipe. Ive used a few smaller ones in tight spaces where I couldnt get room to cut out the pipe. Not sure if they make them in the larger sizes like 2" though.
