    Ive been told the pipe is a ribbed plastic item where it goes around the hinge on the avant , its behind tape at the moment so cannot see exactly where the leak is but i think its just before the bend as it goes onto hinge , are there any inline joint fixes i can use that other folks have tried,

    regards

    that's where mine leaked .You have to open up the cover and splice it together using another piece of pipe either inside or outside sealed as best you can.The original pipe insnt very sturdy and cracks too easily but its not practical too renew the whole section .Mines held for more than 2 years and still gives a strong jet.Worst bit was drying out the fluid from the well.It helps to keep the jets clear

    I think I used some small cable ties and silicone sealant around the break
