Old cement basement laundry tub cracked, what product to fix?

I have an old double cement laundry tub in the basement. I noticed a bunch of water on the basement floor, and then spotted a repaired crack under one of the tubs, that was leaking from some previous owner's attempt to seal.

What product do I use, and if it's some sort of caulk or liquid seal, do I just smear it over the previous sealant? (The crack sealant was applied to the bottom underside of the tub.)

The only thing I could find so far on a general web search was DryLock. Is there anything else (smaller, cheaper?) that could do the trick? I have silicone tub and tile caulk, could that work? Just clueless here...

Thanks for any replies in advance,

Kathy

I had one of those old double sinks. When I removed it, which you might have to do, the date was 1925 on the bottom of it. The silicone might work but you have to remove what's lose. Don't try to seal over the old stuff & I would seal it from the inside. Another possibility is expandable cement. I think I would try that first. It's in a small can & you mix it yourself. You have to be fast with it, since it dries quickly.

Sika crack fix low viscosity epoxy. http://www.sikacorp.com/tds-cpd-sikadurcrackfix-us.pdf

Homedepot used to carry it, but you may have to get it at a concrete supply house. Its about $15-20 for a tube that will fit in a caulk gun. This stuff is amazing.
