If it's leaking at the valve, replacement parts are available to rebuild the gate valve.

If the leak is on the tank itself, repair kits are available.

Robot Check

If the leak is in the plumbing between the tank and valve, again repair parts and adhesives for the pipes is available.

If you are talking about the slide valve they usually come apart and can be fixed. Here is a video:



look for 3 inch slide valve or waste valve.

That said mine all have ended up with a small bit of water in the bottom when I remove the cap. The amount never changes. My assumption is that the leftover water on the side walls of the pipe collects at the bottom and sits there until I go to dump again. It's normal. If it was getting to be more or I had a bit of a stream with the valve closed then I would get worried and fix it.

Is there a connector there or a hole in the pipe or what? A picture would help.

I once fixed a leak in a home plunbing leak by drawing a vacuum on the line with a shop vac and dabbing glue on the leak.Remove roof cap and stick shop vac hose in vent and seal.Turn vac on and draw a vacuum on tank and lines.After a few minutes spread glue on leakand turn off vac.
