Fibreglass tank - holes

    Have a cleaned fibreglass open tank handy for water for cattle. 4 feet by feet width. Good alternative to ibc tank (out of action as no access) as didn't freeze too badly in frost and have it pushed against feed barrier

    Only thing is small holes in fibreglass that causes it to leak on base. Tried using tec 7 but still leaking

    Any product that pours like a liquid and would be waterproof?

    Get a “”fibre glass repair kit”. It’s the kinda thing you don’t know exists till you need it. I busted our fuel tank 6 years ago. Tractor bounced and side panel came of and got stuck in the front wheel forcing it into the fuel tank. Fixed with one of these and never leaked since.

    Will make it good as new.

    Gorilla patch and seal tape, unreal stuff for fixing leaks.

    Ya fiberglass it. 5 or 10 quid for the kit from any motor factors.

    Just rough up around the area, mix the resin and patch it up with mat making sure the mat layers are fully wet and compacted onto the surface before finished.
