Re: Water Tank leaks

You use the word leaks (plural) and welds (plural). If it is leaking in multiple places then I have no easy fix ideas. If there is only one leak I would try to plug it with one of the newer leak fixing sprays or extra sticky chauking componds like Henry's.

Re: Water Tank leaks

JB waterweld. I have used it on radiators, black water tank, and it can be used on potable water too. you do not have to empty the tanks first either, it hardens under water. We keep at least 6 tubes on board while cruising.
