those tanks are designed to hold alot of pressure. If it is cracked, it's already unsafe. When the pump turns on, the tanks usually flex a little bit, depending on your system. The flexing usually makes the patch come undone. It's best, and safer, to replace the filter tank.

You can try different epoxy's but they usually won't hold as the filter expands when running this will break any seal where you put it.You can check into warrentys. A lot of these filters had good warrentys on the tanks that went longer than valve or internal's. if you have install dates and model #'s. Check on line with Hayward.
Worse comes to worse you can drill out a small hole amd using stanless steel go with a bolt and nut with washers and rubber washers in the middle. when you set it seal it all with silicone and after it is tight let it set for eight hours or so. Good luck.

Thank you for posting your question here on Fixya.com.
You need to empty the sand out and replace the lateral assembly too. It attached to the bottom of the valve and has several 'fingers' embedded in the sand. Once it wears enough, the sand can get thru it. Replace the sand if it is over 3 years old while you are at it. A wet/dry vacuum works well for removing the sand.
