Fixing a leak – no matter how big or small – is no mean feat. It can cost you thousands of dollars and dozens of hours to fix one pesky little hole in your roof, wall, or water pipeline. You can try to do it yourself with putty, rubber, and what not, but more often than not, you’ll require professional help. Fortunately, now there is help at hand: Flex Seal. Flex Seal, which bills itself as “Liquid Rubber in a Can”, professes to fix small leaks with remarkable efficiency. Are these claims genuine? We’ll find out in this review.
“Liquid Rubber in a Can” is an idea that sounds great on paper. Instead of using putty or professional equipment to fix a leak, you could just cover a leak with a thin layer of spray able rubber. Once dry, the rubber would harden and stick to the surface, thereby preventing any leakage. However, bringing forth this idea to life presents several challenges. The first and foremost is the difficulty in liquidizing rubber so that it can be used in a spray can. Secondly, the rubber has to dry quickly, otherwise the leakage won’t stop. Thirdly, the rubber has to be strong as well as flexible enough to last a long time without cracking or breaking off.
Fortunately, Flex Seal meets all these challenges with aplomb. Using it is extremely easy: just point the aerosol can at a leak and spray a thin film of rubber all over the surface. The rubber dries very quickly. Once dried, the rubber maintains its flexibility to ensure that the leak is covered completely. Further, the rubber will not become brittle in winter, nor will it loosen its grip in summers. It is also water proof and will last out snow, rain and hailstorms.
Perhaps the best part about Flex Seal is its versatility. Since the rubber takes the shape of whatever surface it is sprayed on, you can use it on a wide variety of objects. From cracked pipes to tiny roof holes, it works like a charm on most leaks. You can also spray a thin layer of Flex Seal around doors and windows to prevent their vibrations and further enhance your houseís insulation.
One can of Flex Seal is sold for $19.99, but as per a current promotion, you get another can free by just paying for the postage and handling. Flex Seal is a must have product that should be a part of every DIY enthusiast’s tool kit. It works exceedingly well in a variety of settings and has multiple uses in a house. At just $19.99, this miracle “Liquid Rubber in a Can” also provides great value for money.
