Sealing a leaking return port flange on gunite pool

Posted by etbrown4 (My Page) on

In trying to winterize this year we find that we have 2 return ports that are leaking between the return port flange and the pool wall.

Wonder if any guys in the pool trade know what the best product is to seal this?

I've considered:
putty-like epoxy
polyurethane caulk
silicone glue

Tips appreciated

RE: Sealing a leaking return port flange on gunite pool

I'm hoping to try one of these this weekend, so any tips would be appreciated!

I have used the putty like epoxy on leaking spa fittings, even leaking or with some moisture present, so since the pool walls will still contain some moisture, the epoxy putty might be my first choice, but I'm open to new ideas!
