Best way to join old and new tubing?


Recommended Posts

Had to replace jets on a 2013 Jetsetter. Cut the old tube and now I need to find the best way to attach a new 3/4 flex pvc tube to the old one. Problem is some of the old tubing does not create a friction fit only a loose fit. Will Christy's Red Hot Blue Glue join these two successfully? Or do I need a brab to brab adaptor?

Trying to stay with the coupling instead of a brab since it won't restrict flow.

A coupling should do the job fine. Ensure it’s clean and use a decent pipe cement. To be extra safe you could use some 2 part glue over each of the coupling joins… barb to barb adaptors are also fine 

Thank you. It worked out perfectly. One last question.

While dremeling out one of the old jets, the cutoff disk must have slightly touched the shell and now there is a very small less than a 1/4 inch crack in the shell by the jet.

What is the best method to patch this up?

Here is a video of the leak.
