Re: leak in saloon drain hose

Yes, Ryan, that does look like one butt-ugly agglomeration of plumbing fittings - must be French :-) I've never seen a Street Elbow with at "T" off the side and the white part looks like maybe a drain trap. The hoses are all standard stuff - I've cut the main run to add a "T" for my air conditioner and it's all plastic (no wire).
Anyway, I think I'd start with a roll of paper towels, dry it all off and try to spot the leak by alternately pouring water down each feed and dabbing around with the paper towel. Maybe use some blue holding tank deodorant as a dye to help spot the leak. If you find it, then try a patch with something like Seal-All. I usually wouldn't recommend trying to seal a leak from the outside, but that assembly is going to be a beast to replace as it does look like it's glued together with PVC cement and the age-hardened hoses and tight space around make it worse. Seal-All is cheap and it really does work wonders, even applied from the outside..
Rots 'o ruck!
