Not sure what the question is... If you pulled off the old tape, then yes, you buy more (either as a DIY or have someone else install it.)

Bigger question is why/where the seams are leaking. They shouldn't, tape or not.

I should make it clearer sorry !! The seams have a 2 inch split in so looks like they have come apart so do you think a wide piece of pvc would hold up better !!
