What will bond to the Blue Tote Tanks to stop a leak??? I'm not sure where it's leaking, just wondered what material would bond to the blue tank.

You haven't said how big the leak is, but the best repair that I have found is to purchase a fiberglass repair kit at Auto Zone or auto supply houses and follow the instructions.

Hi Bill,
Can you call the company? Can you confirm the material the tank is made from? The next question is, how big is the crack/leak? Different products can be used, depending on the size & shape of the leak and where it is on the tank (top/bottom/corner/flat part/joint, etc.).

Used Eternabond tape once few years back. It's still holding.

If you use eternabond on the underside, don't let "stuff" stay in tank too long. I tried to patch my black tank that way. Hydraulic pressure over time will defeat the eternabond's hold. I'm waiting on a new black tank now. HarveyP

If it is a crack or seam, run a hot soldering iron over it to "weld" it back together.

Inside the recycle triangle is a number. Ask a body shop what they use to repair that number of plastic (it's a code to match like plastics).
My body shop plastic welded a broken rear fender on my GM dually last month.
