If you've ever had the misfortune to discover a crack in a holding tank, you know that you are in for an unpleasant time. Even if you don't want to leave your home-on-wheels at the shop for the repair, you are faced with removing the tank--a job in itself often requiring the removal of other body parts of your RV just to get it out--transporting it to a shop, waiting for the repair to be made (could be hours or days), being without the tank for the repair period (that's not fun), than re-installing the tank.
But there is an alternative. VersaChem's Plastic Repair Kit is an epoxy fix that, according to the manufacturer, will repair holes or cracks up to 15" in length in plastic holding tanks--including waste tanks made of ABS and PVC. It is designed for professionals but easy enough to use for the unhandy RVer as well.
The kit comes with three pouches of epoxy repair and repairs take just minutes. You can find it at Dyers RV Parts and Accessories or $41.98.
