I know I can do that. No funds to do that now. I was looking for some kind of putty or something like that.Casey said:Replace the skimmer box. It's not hard, just drain below the box n put the new one on.
I should remove the Teflon on the threads first before putting epoxy on threads, right?1380ken said:Even if you fix the crack it will probably leak at the threads. You could fix it with epoxy but I would also epoxy the threads on the fitting.
Great idea...I already used something called Water Weld from Homedepot.I will do that as insurance, thanks.asxetos said:If I had to repair that, I would use only mechanical means, as this kind of damage needs mechanical support anyway.
A couple hose clamps and a piece of suitable diameter hose pipe slipped over the damaged part would do the job in a semi - permanent way.
The clamps and hose pipe piece should be slipped over there without disturbing the damaged joint itself.
Just my 2c.
