I have developed a leak in my Hotspot TX triangle spa. I noticed the water levels dropping dramatically. So I went to investigate and found water dripping from the bottom of the spa skirting. So using that drip as a locator I removed the glued on skirting and the insulation inside to find wet insulation and staining from water. I removed all the insulation and noticed a fracture or crack and water stains in what looks to be a union or splice piece of PVC right before the tubing makes the turn to the foot massager jet. (Photos attached) I am looking for recommendations on a durable repair/replace method. I didn't know if you could just silicone the crack or maybe use some amalgamating wrap or waterproof tape or if it needs to be replaced completely? If replacement is necessary how would be the best way to go about that? Thanks for any help.
Does anyone know how bleach will affect silicone? There are conflicting chemical resistance charts online - what would be a suitable substitute for flexible tubing (to run through a peristaltic pump) - if silicone is severely affected by bleach?
