    If you can't find aquamend, the normal pratley putley also works. The white and red box one.

    You can try rejoining the return with pvc weld. The putty might do the trick, always a good idea to sand the area where you apply the putty for better grip. Send a picture I'm sure someone will have a quick solution for you.

    I've used Alcolin SiliconTAPE before (Silicone Tape | Tapes | DIY Products | Alcolin) - works well. You just cut off a strip, stretch it and wrap it tightly around the pipe. I've seen in at Builders Warehouse and Gelmar here in Pmb.
