Tank stand Flexdip?

My last stand build I used a shower pan liner to seal the sump area water tight. It was a pain working it around the inside of the stand and sealing it. This time I was thinking of using the flexdip spray or something similar. Anyone try this?

I'd suggest their tape + roll on products vs the spray which in my experience doesn't spay on very evenly. Using the tape to seal gaps, then rolling/brushing/spraying over the whole surface should get you where you want.

Holds water just fine..
No need for anything fancy..

agree .

this is all you really need.. If you have a leak you need to get the water up regardless .

This is what I have always done as well. Plenty of other things to spend $$$ on in this hobby - like a couple of $10 leak detector alarms
