Spray On Leak Sealer

Seen on TV the other night there is a product, think it was called Leakender 2000, It is a spray on, is suppose to stop all types of leaks, showed a cracked p-trap, a split in a water hose, some other items, and is suppose to seal it permanently, anyone else seen this on tv yet?

They even have a money back garantee on it.

Lets get real here. would you put your trust on a spray on product to stop a leak.

I'd be scared to put a garantee on that product if I was saleing it.

Wonder how long before they get sued over this product for claiming it will seal any leak garanteed.

Hate to be a home owner, use this on a pressure pipe, in there house, happen to leave on vacation, and then return to a flooded house.

Actually, the other night, I stayed up all night long and watched plumbing product infomercials, and then decided to cut my own jugular with a Stanley utility knife... I sprayed some Leakender 2000 on my neck and it saved my life until I could get to the emergency room... THANK YOU LEAKENDER 2000...




no c.o.d.s Please!

Cool

Yeah, I've seen that stuff advertised, too.
The "guarantee" probably means that if it doesn't work, they'll send you another one just like it.
Sort of like my "lifetime warranty" tank water heater that I paid through the nose for, which I've had to replace twice in seven years. (I'm on my third one, but hey, the replacement water heaters were "free". Just didn't take into account my labor to remove and re-install the new ones, or the 80-mile round-trip to the nearest Lowe's).
I think that I'm going to start a psychic hotline here. Anybody want to know their "future"? Send money. I'll even speak phony Jamaican. LOL
All of this stuff on TV is unbelievable.
Mike

stop leak spray FlexSeal

You can go to your local auto parts store and try some a lot cheaper. It appears to be nothing but auto body undercoating to me.

I'm not sure why I'm answering this reply to a nine year old thread... I just wanted to say that the weather is clearing here today and I might be able to go out fishing in my boat that I've replaced the bottom with a screen door and coated it with ____________...

HAHAHA. The best part about that scene is the guy is sitting with his legs as wide as they can go so his feet don't through the bottom.

It took probably 50 cans of that stuff to waterproof that screen door. Yeah, and only Larry Craig has a wider stance when sitting down.....oops, that's political, isn't it? Sorry.

That's a good one!!


Does the company selling the thick black snake oil in a can even plan to be around long enough to have to make good on their guarantee?

The carpet in my living rm has cheap padding, I argued with them that I wanted better but when they offered me a double lifetime written warranty - I let them install it I should have known better, they went out of business 6 months later.

Good point. That's something I don't even think about. But I know you really should. What a great scam. Get your money and then go out of business - like that Solyndra disgrace!

key00,

I saw your reply to this thread early this morning (can't remember whether I was just going to bed or just leaving for work, but either way I didn't have time then to reply.) But since then, I see that a lot of others have been having fun with you!

First off, welcome to the forums!! (This is only your second post, so a "Welcome" is probably still in order.)

Second, don't let any of the current replys scare you off. We'll gladly discuss anything relevent.

But WHY did you dig up a 9 year old thread?? My post on 12-06-02 was addressed to 3 guys who are no longer with us, and who haven't been in here for YEARS!!! If I'm correct, NONE of the current responders were around when this thread was originally started.

Sorry, but when I saw this in my inbox, I KNEW you were in for some good natured ribbing, and you got it. (If I would have had time earlier, I would have been the one to start it!!)

Hang around a while, and just put up with us!! Everybody in here does their level best to give good answers and good advise. But given a chance to poke a little fun at somebody and enjoy some good-natured humor, you better believe that we will!!

Well gang, key00 will either join us, or we scared him off. (Let's hope it's the former, not the latter.)

Vic, are you OK -- haven't heard from you yet!!

I'm here....I've just become too mature and sensible to participate in these kinds of discussions.

OK...so a monkey, a parrot, and a zebra walk into a bar......

I know, right? What did I do to deserve all this abuse? lol

Is there a minimum age for curmudgeons? I'm probably one of the youngest ones here, if there is.

Vic, why are you trying to bring an age thing into this?? You know full well that there's no discrimination around here. Us old ones get picked on just as bad as you young ones do every time the opportunity presents itself!!

The thing is, we all seem to keep coming back for the abuse!!

It's my fault. I was just trying to have more company, and Vic hadn't chimed in yet. Getting older ain't for sissies.
