Water tank

Post by 033Shalom »

My tank leaks water into the sump. I know some owners put in a flexible tank instead but I'm hoping to cut out the damaged GRP and fill with epoxy. Any advice of a suitable way of doing this and sourcing a non toxic epoxy?
Thanks.

Hi David?

This is an old post but I have issue with my water tank, too. I am wondering if you managed to sort yours out and how?

Thanks in advance!

I sort of did. Using a sealant called CT1. Applying it with a long stick as best I could, leaving it over night to set, the leaking of water was much reduced though not perfect. CT1 comes in white and is safe for potable use. I may have to give it another go but I have since seen a spray called Jaysuing which is advertised to do a good job and is easily applied. There are videos on Youtube. I haven't used it so can't vouch for it but if it works it could be the best solution.
