What to do about a leaky pool fillter?

How can I fix a leaking above-ground pool filter (with epoxy or something)? Should I try or will this mess it up further?

We have an older above-ground pool with an elderly sand filter. One hose comes from the skimmer, past the motor and into the filter. Another hose goes from the filter back into the pool. A third "port" with a screwed-on plastic cover exists near the bottom of the filter, possibly for draining for the winter, and it is this port that is leaking right now, dripping, not streaming, but dripping rapidly.
Should I epoxy it somehow (with what?)? Should I grin and bear it and replace the water a few times a week? I can't find anything expressly relevant on the web, probably because the filter is obsolete.
