cracked Rubbermaid cooler

My 120 quart has a fist size piece of the inside liner crack and I was wondering if anyone had a suggestion for a repair.

Thanks,
Steven

Duct tape is the handy man's friend!

If it was the outside of cooler, then I would agree duct tape is the thing. I tend to use this cooler to food and I'm afraid the duct tape would harbor bacteria.

I first thought of silicon caulk, but I wanted to see if someone had a better idea first.

Thanks

There are plastic repair kits like Plast-aid and Plastex. You can try an epoxy or urethane adhesive to try to bond the two sides together. There are also plastic fillers and putties available.

The duct tape suggestion sounds simpler. Food would be in storage containers or bags and not in contact with the tape. That is unless you place food directly into the cooler, such as a cooler full of potato salad.

Waterproof plastic repair patch? Like is used on swimming pool liners?

Just a thought...
