JB "Waterweld" - advice please.

Has anyone one here used the above product (it's from the same stable as "Weld" and "Marine Weld").

I need to seal multiple leaks in a rusty (once) galvanised water gutter. The surface is rusty and wet - this stuff looks like it might work. Any thoughts if you have used it or any other recommendations gratefully considered.

A new gutter will cost me €1000 so I'm hoping for a cheap fix

I used this stuff on the garage. http://www.lindab.co.uk/dokumenter/R...uctions(1).pdf Looks superb, easy to fix, not much more expensive than plastic sh*te.

Sounds very nice. Unfortunately mine is more of an industrial sized item - it's about 8" square section and about 80' long so replacement is to be avoided. I wasn't joking about the 1000, that was just to supply the new one, never mind a contractor to fit it

Thanks Tim, I wonder are we thinking about the same stuff - the blurb says that it is a "putty"

Willk,

It is a kneadable 2 part putty that is a bulker/filler and a hardner. It forms a plasticene type consitency paste that can be moulded for a while then it hardens off fully. I've never used it on a wet substrate, rust may need the loose stuff removing or it could blind the adhesive nature of it. It sticks ok but it is not as as good say as a mastic. It will perform best if it can be moulded say on both sides of a hole (like a rivet) or can be forced into something where it cannot come out after hardening (an undercut)

HTH

um, no, the inner side of the gutter is built into the top of the wall, I only have access to this inner side from INSIDE the gutter. And it's wet
