Help with fixing a leaking PNP BAG


Bwhit

Recommended Posts

My front ballast bag in the bow is leaking when it gets to 3/4 full. I found the source of the leak. It’s coming from the factory seal where the fitting mates to the bag. It’s not the threads or fitting. I believe it was caused by over time the fitting 90degree when it fills up pushes against the cushions and finally caused it to start leaking. 
rather then buying a new bag I would like to try and fix it. Do you guys have any recommend patches or pvc you recommend to try and use?

We’re you able to fix this?

I used the purple spray PVC cement because I had a can here anyway. Sprayed many light coats then cut a patch that fit over the valve tight and was about 1.5" all the way around valve. Like a donut. Used glue that comes with a patch kit to stick it. Has worked for 2 trips but I suspect it will fail again.https://www.homedepot.com/p/VPC-PipeWeld-All-In-One-Pipe-Cement-Adhesive-for-PVC-Pipe-6-31-05/204867549?source=shoppingads&locale=en-US&&mtc=Shopping-VF-F_D26P-G-D26P-026_001_PIPE_FITTING-MULTI-NA-Feed-SMART-2146689-WF-PIPE_AND_FITTINGS_New_Engen+PL3&cm_mmc=Shopping-VF-F_D26P-G-D26P-026_001_PIPE_FITTING-MULTI-NA-Feed-SMART-2146689-WF-PIPE_AND_FITTINGS_New_Engen+PL3-71700000081597013-58700006937676208-92700062365702238&gclid=Cj0KCQiA7oyNBhDiARIsADtGRZbypwYbfo_ZW8FWkX0LFXHUs9wOfo5OomDwQKm4OM1-63V7NNXBDv0aAvk3EALw_wcB&gclsrc=aw.ds

I could have sworn I replied to this, but maybe it didn't take.

I read about a similar repair in another forum where they used a plastic through-hull fitting and shoved it through the torn spot, then used 3M 5200 sealant around the fitting before tightening the nut down.  You should be able to find a fitting that has the correct end for your quick disconnects.

You did but it is in another thread somewhere else.

fix your pnp plumbing length and route as well as 90 elbow vs straight quick connect,  quit making a bind on the port that causes this,  overfilling is also a big contributor 

i just cut the length of my new boats rear drain/fill line and switched it from a straight quick connect to a 90
