Hello. After the freeze in Texas I noticed water pooling under the manifold of my pentair heater while the pump is running. I found the leak (slowly drips water) on the return pipe. My guess is the freeze created a small fracture in the pipe. Any ideas how to repair this or will I need to replace the manifold?

thanks

Welcome to TFP.

You need to open up the heater and see what cracked. Whatever is cracked needs to be replaced. Those things cannot be repaired.

Some people are posting that their pool company is saying they will not replace the manifold and will only replace the heater.
