Holding Tank Leak :(

My polyethylene holding tank has a very slow (thankfully) leak where the fitting for discharge is inserted. PO had macerator connected directly to HT. I think the weight of the non-supported macerator might have ruined the seal. I have tried caulking to no avail.

Anyone have serious remedies for this? Non serious are welcome as long as they include something helpful. Is it possible to "weld" the plastic fitting to the holding tank or is it best to start over?
