Which Tanks Can Use This Kit?
How to Use the Bladder Tank Repair Kit
- Clearly mark the repair area with permanent marker. Make sure that the vinyl repair patch will cover the entire damaged area, and then cut to size with the included scissors. Allow at least 2" of clearance beyond the damaged area so the repair patch can be properly adhered and seal the bladder tank.
- Clean the damaged area and patch surface with a vinyl friendly solvent. Allow to dry, then use the sandpaper to abrade the area you will be applying the vinyl cement. Be sure to sand the entire area that will be underneath the patch.
- Apply the vinyl cement to the repair area and underside of the patch, and then allow to dry. This gives the patch a tacky surface and ensures enough cement is applied to fully seal the tank. Apply a second coat of glue and place the patch onto the repair. Use the seam roller to flatten any air pockets or bubbles that may have appeared, and to ensure the patch is in full contact with the tank.
- Apply a thin coat of glue around the edges as a final sealant. Store unused material in the resealable bag.
