Hello i used a black water proof mastic type stuff it came in a tube with a nozzle,I squeezed it in to the split and 18 lead pellet holes (water butt was shot )it set as soon as the water touched it  so couldnt smooth it off I just used a Stanley knife and trimmed the excess off,it wont set with out water    jezza

I used a miniature (15w) electric soldering iron to weld the split together (I used a Stanley knife to cut a thin strip of plastic from the edge of the lid to use as 'solder' to reinforce the repair.)

Fiddly, but it has worked for me on more than one occasion.
Sow your seeds, plant your plants. What's the difference? A couple of weeks or more when answering possible queries!

One of the best things about being an orang-utan is the fact that you don't lose your good looks as you get older
