    pump housing crack

    My strainer basket housing on my pump has a hairline crack that sucks in air when pump is running. Is there anyway to repair this? Thanks

    You can try sealing it with two part epoxy plumbing putty, but chances are it won't hold or will only hold for a year or two. Most likely you will need a new housing.
