    Dave I was concerned that if I did a new 10 port manifold and replaced all the hoses running to the jets that it would be opening a can of worms and I would end up replacing the jet ports too.... 10 more chances to have a leak... It cost me less than an hour, 4 hose clamps and the $6.60 I paid for the JB Weld.

    I here ya on the fixing it with the correct parts And agree 100 percent but I didn't want to deal with all the hoses that were hard and would have to be cut off. And regardless I still didn't have a way to reattach the PVC pipe back to the gate valve where I cut the busted piece off flush. So I was kind of backed in a corner so to speak.

    I am happy so far and I can still do the above if it comes to it later.

    Well I got to enjoy the hot tub and relax instead of working on it.

    The manifold repair is water tight and holding the pressure from the pump. I don't think it will be a problem again.

    Glad its done...
