    I would use a silicone sealant.....and possibly a screw on clamp.
    Any reason you are being cautious?

    Doesn't the above dry like hard?....that is why I think a more flexable sealant would be better.....JMO!

    Yes, the best I remember it does dry hard, not sure how hard. But, if it is what I used before, and I think it is, it will adhere to that type plastic or whatever the tub is.
    Once I had a tub crack near the top. Pretty good crack. I cut a curved section from another tub and glued it to the bad tub with Plasti Weld. Trying to remember if I put two cut pieces on it, one outside and one inside. Seemed to do the trick. Never heard of a priblem with it. Had to put a lid switch or something on it a little while later. It was still holding. Thinking of removing the bleach drain and covering the hole the same way. Then I will change the tub ring to one that drains directly into the top of the water.
    The silicone did not want to stick to the rubber part that goes in the tub at the bottom. Maybe I did not put a thick enough seal around the edge and the tub. I turned it with almost no effort.

    A great idea.

    I should have pointed out this bleach hose does not clamp at the bottom. It appears to be pressed in. Clamping was not an option.
    I did cut it out, patched the hole inside and out. Then changed the tub ring. The adhesive set up pretty good and quick. Will try it tomorrow when it has time to cure a little. Feeling pretty good about it so far.

    Press into the groove style then.....I usually use something like this to help them seal up...

    The Plastic Welder seemed to do a very good job. I might could have just sealed the connection with it.
    I patched another with it that looked like it had gotten off balance and had a 3 or 4" slit worn in the outer tub near the top.

    That's a lot of off-balanced!

    Have seen a nail get caught in one of the drum holes and cut the outer tank in two.
