10 yr old Regal hot tub. Heater element (110V) appears to be is glued in stainless assembly tube. And right by one of the prongs that come thru the stainless housing into the heater control box there is a pinhole leak leak. So when pump is on high it drips.

How can I fix this? The hole is not visible to human eye. The element is still good. And how do you remove the heater element when it is glued into the assembly? I noticed replacement heater elements appear to be connect with a washer and nut.

BTW this leak started after the hot tub ran up to 110F.

Thx

With JTAG cable hooked up to the pump. Erase heater element variables first.
