    Barb. I'm not sure if it is for rubber. Typically we burn down rubber strips or flashings when fixing rubber roofs but that is something for an experience d roofer to do. I just really hate roofing cement on rubber as it wrecks it.

    Agree with
    Agree with Meyer! Time! Hopefully UV or peeling isn't a problem. Rather go the difficult way if I know it's the right way, not that this isn't!

    I will certainly report back here after some time goes by and I see how the Flex S eal works. I have the tape and also the sealant on the epdm, out of water. And covered with rocks. I will be prepared to use something else later on if necessary.

    So far so good, no leaks at all.

    Still holding great, the tape and the glue. Both have been through multiple freezes and thaws. Both are out of the water though, and receive no sun. I am still liking it.

    I recall your original posts. How long is it now? and does it remain flexible? Sounds good!

    I did the job about Halloween time, and it seems just the same now, flexible and unchanged.

    I have used flex seal on the connection between the waterfall and the liner for about 3 years. No issues. I've also recently used flex seal on a pond inside the house with no fish. It sealed at least 3 leaks even through tile. I'm a believer.

    I just tried the Flex Seal spray on a stock tank with multiple leaks. 3 applications over 3 days. Still leaking! I will say it was applied over PL Roofing cement on 2 of the leaks.
