there are actually 3 different sized pipes in the pic; the camera is a bit "distorting".

thanks for the ideas all. I will try tightening first, then go to the next stage if need be.

You hit it right~ The 64GT had no less than three totally burst sections from water freeze..
It was plain to see that no attempt had been made to winterize the unit..
But what got me was the electrician tape used to stem the leak..~!! And, this temp fix was used for years` OMG..The first thing I discovered was a total rust out for the holding tank..
Thank

I winterized mine, but after I de-winterized it we had another mild freeze. That might have caused the problem, luckily its an easy one.
