Pool noob so be gentle. I noticed bubbles coming out of my in-floor cleaning jets. I tracked down a crack in what appears to be an in-ground leaf canister. The yellow arrow from my awesome MS-Paint skills indicates the leak. It is not the lid but the line coming into the canister.
How should I go about fixing this? Do I need the canister in addition to the basket on the pump or should I just shoot it straight to the pump? Other suggestions? In the 8 months I've owned the pool, there has been little debris in the canister that is cracked and next to nothing in the pump basket.
I'm not much of a plumber but I'll take a swing at fixing it if it won't be too laborious. I'm handy but there isn't a lot of room there to be putting in PVC joints and don't want to be hacking up the lines.
