That product is very expensive, I would try Power Adhesives 246. It is a high performance hot melt for dent pulling. Acrylic hot melts also work very well for bonding plastic. Both can be found in a 1/2" stick for the 3M AE II at about half the price of the 3M 3764.,, Amazon, etc.

A pin hole in pvc pipe under jacuzzi what can i use

Self amalgamating tape wrapped several times around and well over lapped would probably do it. Just to be sure I would secure it in place with one or two 'jubilee' type hose clips (the sort used to secure radiator hoses on cars) would probably make a quick fix.
For a longer term repair you could try using fibreglass car body repair paste (the sort with fibres in it - not the smooth filler paste). However it will not still to pvc very well. The surface needs to be rubbed with a bit of glass paper to roughen it slightly and then degrease by wiping with a cloth moistened with acetone (nail polish remover would do) before fibre-glassing.

Emerson pool pump, pvc pipe between impeller and strainer snapped, how do or can you replace the pvc pipe, it appears both ends are glued

You can buy what is called an internal connecter that fits inside the pipe and glues the two halves back together. It is a specialty pvc fitting not found in home improvement stores. You will likely find them at a local pool service company.

They look like this. They are on the top right with part numbers like S0302-15 for 1.5" pvc pipe.

Broken jet line

If the break is in the flexible tubing that connects the nozzles it is most likely spa-flex. This is the same size as nominal schedule 40 pvc and can be repaired with standard pvc fittings, primer and glue. Make sure the surfaces are clean and dry before repairing them and also allow at least 24 hours cure time on the glue.
