    Can someone tell me how to fix a leak from an inlet tube from the pump up to the waterfall? It seems to leak from right around the tube( it is located close to the full water line in the pond) I've tried a marine grade silicone but to no avail.I don't normally mess with flex liners so this has me stumped.Thanks for the help

    Submersable pumps don't have inlet tubes, but the outlet tube could have fittings that need tightening or redoing. Skimmer to liner needs to have no wrinkles in the liner and a nice bead of sillycone on 3 sides, none neccesary on the top side.
