Customer Question

Your best bet is to replace the whole tank instead of fixing it. You could try resealing it, but most of the time that is only a temporary fix. I would advise if you are going to fix it you clean the area really well and use a 2 part epoxy. If you decide to replace it here is how. I hope this helps!
