Mending Water Butts

They covered this in the May edition of GYO Zoe. He uses a small bit of Pond liner and some Epoxy Resin.

Do you think that would still work if the water butt base is a bit flexible?

Don't see why not especially if you use butyl rubber as that will give a tad.

I knew there was an old post on here somewhere that would help. Confusedmile:

 

I have a slim water butt I think it holds a 100 ltrs or so,it is on a stand so that I can get a watering can under the tap. A week or so ago I noticed the area it is in all wet. I thought someone had left the tap open as it had drained.I used it yesterday to fill the watering can and the area it sits in was dry.This evening I noticed everywhere around it wet again,this time I noticed the smallest of holes almost the size of a sowing needle and a steady fine jet of water escaping.

I was thinking about a repair solution so hence me searching here.I have also found that Wicks have them on offer at the moment too, *cheer* so I will be there to get another tomorrow morning.I will then use the older repaired one as an overflow tank from the new and site them side by side.
