Product Testing, 1, 2, 3...


 
So two years ago, we made a fountain for the patio.
 Lately, we'd been filling it daily and watching a river flow away from it.
Why?
 Upon closer inspection...
 Well, we saw very little.
No real discernible spot to patch with a little Goop and get on with our lives.
However, I'd recently purchased a can of stuff to attack leaks with when I'm
allowed back up on the roof.
WHEN AM I ALLOWED BACK UP ON THE ROOF, GUYS???
 We'll just take this as an opportunity, right?
A little experiment...
AND THEN SOMEONE'S GOING UP ON THE ROOF, SO 
MAKE UP YOUR REHABBING MINDS, FAMILY!
 Ahem.
Anyway, the product says to give it 30 minutes between coats, so I did.
Then let it cure for 24 hours before painting.
Did that too.
 The next day, we spray painted the bottom with Rustoleum Sunshine Yellow and wiped the layers off in between for a more rustic look.
 Looks okay.
Now for the test...
 Fill with water.
 Look at all that dry pavement!
 Reassemble the thing.
Yep, still dry.
 Wait, because you're an uber skeptic.
This is holding water better than a lot of campaign promises.
Repair and revamp successful!
I feel confident this will work on the roof leak.
So who's going up there with me?
Guys??? GUYS????
Hey, where'd everybody go?
MINIONS!!!

That's pretty impressive! I hope it holds up, that would be an amazing find.

Is this the stuff they cover a screen door with and then go boating? If so, that stuff scares me. ;)

It is great to have you as a product tester, before we go and spend good money. This looks like some handy stuff to have around.
