How do I replace that housing? Do I have to remove the tank?
Thanks in advance.
All the repairs mentioned are good for plastic pipe, except yours. The fitting is not only holed, source ?. But its also cracked for a good distance passed the hole. Whatever you do to secure the leak will simply continue to work on the broken fitting until it fails all the way around. I suggest you contact FR and find someone who can do plastic tank welding. Its not a big deal anymore. The fitting needs to be removed up to or including the tank penetration. Then start over. That failure is very suspicious, looks like it dragged over a curb or something. I enlarged the photo to full screen size and its apparent its failed pretty badly.
