Default Leak in pond

We patched a crack in our kiddie pool veggie filter by using a piece of edpm
and roofing tar. The patch is three inches beyond the crack on either side.
It has held for more than a year.

Yes, but it is some work. Plumbers goo, it was also known as shoe goo. It's a
thick goo in a tube and it works well. You need to fix the crack cause, such as
a rock pressure point under the preform. Scrub clean the crack and apply the
goo. Let sit for a day and refill. I use goo for rubber liners as a cement for
a patch, it seems to last forever.
