    Thank you. I will post more pics as work progresses, but I have to wait a day or two to let sealant dry.

    Having trouble with a pesky leak. Hope to have it done by this weekend. I already have three calla lilies and three creepy jenny plants ready to go in the box.

    I have one of those leaks and I know it is due to either a sagging liner, or moss growing down into the water sucking it up. Not going down that much so not going to worry about it...............yet!

    The leak is were the liner fits around the spillway pipe. I slathered gutter sealant around it like peanut butter last night. Hopefully that got it, if not I still have 3/4 of the tube left. o_O

    Look up pipe boot on Koiphen.Com
    This is from that site ...
    Make a round hole in the liner half the diameter of the pipe you intend to use. for 2" use a 1" hole etc. I used a hole punch set but careful work with a razor blade will work too.

    Take a scrap piece of liner and cut it about 1" or so bigger than the diameter of thepipe you using. This will provide padding for the hose clamp. Punch or cut the same size small hole in the middle as above.

    The stainless steel hose clamp fits over the pipe and the two pieces of liner.

    Thank for the advice Gordo33. In this case the leak is my fault. I had just changed the blade in my razor knife and I am afraid that I applied a little to much force. I was aiming for a one inch hole and ended up cutting a two inch hole:banghead:. But don't worry I will get that leak one way or another. At least the ugly three pounds of sealant is in the inside of the box and will soon to buried under pea gravel.:D

    I stuck my tractors bucket teeth through the side of my 1000 gallon stock tank, about 1/2 way down. I took a piece of liner on the outside, piece on the inside gooped the heck out of it. Put another piece of liner over the inside and outside, let it dry a bit, like a day, then filled it up. Still holding years later.
    The roofing goop works great.

    I stumbled onto this gutter sealant when I made my little stream out of a gutter.
    It is similar to the roof sealer you are talking about addy1.
    I did manage to stop the leak and I was able to get the bog up and running last night. It was too dark for photos when I was done. I will post some tonight.
