is there a good adhesive i can use to fix my water changer?
theres a small crack on one of my new water changers. after contacting the seller, she wants me to eat the shipping both ways (she claims 8$ one way for her) and i know i can ship it flate rate for 6.... but thats 14$ and not worth it. i could just buy a replacement new from any were for 10$.... any ways can i fix this with a 2 part epoxy for plastics?
i have this:
but it says not to use it on a surface that will be constantly wet... if it costs more than a few bucks to get a new epoxy ill just buy a new water changer....KING OF THE GOLD BARBS RAWR!!!!
I wonder if i plant one of my tiger barbs would the demon seed grow to a full tree?
gotta love them bunnies!

Have you checked out "EpoPutty made by Alteco". Its an epoxy that is around $10. and is used to glue coral to rocks in the tank. Works well wet.Warning; Bulldog Pleco guarding my Sons tank now..
Please remember; every keystroke has a consequence.

If you are talking about one of those python water changer adapter thing. I've never had any luck trying to repair it. Whatever epoxy or glue I've used the pressure of the water or attaching it to the sink would keep cracking the fix. It's plastic so I think a product like weldon might work better, though the cost of the weldon might be more than the adapter.
Might be cheaper in the long run to just buy a replacement instead of trying to fix it. A bit hard to find these days but I was able to find one made out of metal, old waterbed refill kits had the same type of adapter in them.
