Im going to attempt to use JB Water weld for a short term fix while I order another valve but im open to other suggestions. Its sucking air enough to where I dont have enough suction to vacuum at this point...(dont mind the shaving cream, thats how I found the leak lol). Its leaking where the 2" PVC meets the valve. Right at the glue joint connecting the two.

It’s probably time to rebuild the front of your pump and get a new valve . Cut out all those old couplers and connectors. I would move the pump back a little further if possible.

I'd probably try silicone caulk. Glob it on, and turn the pump on so it pulls it into the crack. The caulk would be more flexible and I'd think would hold up to temperature changes/expansion/contraction and vibration better.
