This amazing product has been proven to be the best thing you can buy to fix almost any leak or crack you can think of in your home. It can save you all the stress and anxiety of having these small imperfections fixed, and end up saving you some money.

This product can help to seal or fix just about any crack or leak you can find in or around your home. If there is a leak in your ceiling or roof, you can easily apply this product and expect the leak to be gone completely. If you had paid for a professional to come fix that tiny leak, it could have ended up taking up a lot of your valuable time, and leaving you with a pricey bill. Using this cost efficient product saves you time and money, every time! Think of all of the places you have experienced leaks or cracks throughout your home, and then grab your can of Flex Seal and never have problems with them again! This product can be used to fix anything anywhere, from cracks in the bathtub, leaks in pipes, cracks or spaces around windows, and even leaking rain gutters. This product can be applied to all of these problem areas, and eliminate leaks forever.

Spray On Anything!

Now it may seem quite impossible that a spray on sealant has the ability to fix all of these leaks and cracks. However, when you look further into the science behind it all you will realize that it is quite amazing. When you have spotted a problem area, such as a leaking pipe for instance, there are several steps you need to take to ensure that things are done properly. The first step is to make sure that you can safely reach the problem area, because you need to cover the entire surrounding area with the sealant. Once you have established that you can indeed reach the leaky area go ahead and shake the can well and then begin to apply several coats of the product slowly and evenly, making sure that each coat has a chance to dry before the next is applied. It can take anywhere from two to four hours for the sealant to dry completely, depending on the weather and humidity. This product is in fact waterproof; however you do need to worry about drying the problem area before applying the protecting coats simply to ensure that it is applied more evenly and properly. One normal can of Flex Seal can cover an area from two to eight square feet, while a jumbo can cover two to twelve square feet.

This liquid sealant can be sprayed onto just about any surface in your home to fix any leaks or cracks. It can be used on wood, metal, tile, concrete, glass, fabric, dry wall, vinyl, and just about any other surface that can be thought of. The material is waterproof, weatherproof, and is flexible. So, you can spray it anywhere and on anything and expect it to perfectly cover and mask the problem. Once the product is completely dried, it will last for years to come, saving you from frustration and expensive costs.

Why Wouldn't You Buy This?

You also have the option of emptying the contents of the can into a bowl and physically brushing or painting the material onto the problem area, allowing the same drying time in between coats. The sealant comes out black and dries the same, but can be easily painted over once it is completely dry. The material itself is a thick and durable rubber like substance which comes out as a sprayed liquid so that it can seep itself into cracks and holes, and then dry with a watertight seal. While this product can be applied to just about everything, there are, however, several places that this material should never be applied to including any container for drinking water and any tank which holds combustible material such as gasoline or oil.

Flex Seal is one of the most cost efficient products that you can buy, because it has the ability to not only fix any pesky leaks you are dealing with throughout your home but to also save you from spending too much money. This spray on sealant will solve your leaking problems for years to come, and is simple and easy to use. Do not even hesitate to go and purchase this product today before it becomes too late, and you have to spend more than you want or need to. Seal out those leaks for good!

      Can this product be sanded with out compromise? I repaired a small crack in a fiber glass tub at the waterline when full. I used the clear spray then the clear Flex Seal, another blast of spray, sealant and finished off with a final blast of spray. I have a noticeable square, raised patch, but the repair job cannot be seen unless in the tub. I realize that citrus based cleaners remove the Flex Seal products, but can it be safely sanded. I am not an adept handy man but I purchased this product in hopes that it would make any water repairs safely. Thanks for your time and trouble...hopefully this stops the crack and seals it from leaking, but would like to sand the area just so it is smooth, but do not want to compromise the area repaired.

      I purchased this product to fix a small crack in my tub. I put one coat on it and the leak did not stop. But after applying 2 more coats, the leak stopped. Has been fine for almost 5 months!
