Water tank leaking

Went to fill my water tank today and immediately saw water from beneath. My first thought was that is was the drain but no, I wasn't so lucky. Looks to be in a lower corner. Is there any product that can be pumped into the tank to seal it?



Tank is over the front axle and directly under the sub floor. Really agonizing thoughts going through my head right now. To make matters worse, I just finished putting a new floor and had total access to the sub floor 2 months ago.

There are a few products out there and plastic welders as well

Since I have only repaired non-potable tanks I will let someone that has dealt with potable recommend their fix

If you can get to the area of failure completely that will be the key

Upon further investigation the tank is not located where I thought it was. The tank is in the back and rather accessible. I guess the tank is leaking and the water is running on the chassis to the front of the MH and then dripping down. I just leveled it to see if I can figure more out. It has to be the tank as it was completely winterized and didn't leak until I put water in it. The pump wasn't running so it couldn't have been in any of the lines. As a matter of fact I have turned on the pump now and it is holding pressure.

Can you see that it is the tank that is leaking? Did it contain water when you winterized it?

I finally found the access panel and got to the tank. The connection to the drain line had broken and is now fixed. I am so relieved that it wasn't the tank itself. I had to be a bit of contortionist but she is fixed and I don't have to cancel my plans for the next weekend. Thanks. It's always something.
