Hi I'm Wayne

I will hep you with this

That is a discontinued item

BUT to repair , I have done on several Plastic tanks

clean very well with Alcohol, then use sand paper to rough up the surface

purchase Fiber glass resin and hardener

apply that to the seam,

apply it in 2-3 coats , letting dry 12 hours between coats

Guarantee, will be stronger then the Tank
