Do any of these products work ??


most of these products fail the very first time your plastic tank fills with water only to be back to square one again loosing all your water again and what’s so amazing is most of these products all claim to fix your leak with ease but most of these products have printed on the packaging that there product bond to (MOST PLASTICS) yes that’s right there correct as plastic tanks are mostly made from various polythenes and these types of polys are not able to be fixed for any length of time using adhesive products like all the ones I have already mentioned in this article , actually there is no adhesive glue types of products on the market sold yet that is suitable to repair poly tanks successfully long term.

So the short answer is no, glues do not work when trying to fix your leaking poly tank.
