I have a large 3 tiered concrete water fountain (4 foot diameter of bottom tier) that leaks in the bottom tier. I left it uncovered last winter and it got a large crack in the bottom tier. I have tried to fix it with concrete patch stuff but it didn't hold up and started leaking again. The same thing happened when I tried "liquid nails". The patch jobs hold up for a while then they give way and I am back to the same old problem... a leak.

Please Help! How can I fix my water fountain so it will hold water in all the tiers again? I would love to fix it up and enjoy it again, but my repairs are just not working.
Any help here would be appreciated so much. Thank You.

When you say "large" do you mean wide or long?
If you have a hairline crack, try Capt. Tolley's Crack Cure (http://www.captaintolley.com/). If you are patient in applying it in several doses, you'll get good results.

If you have a wide crack, I'd try JB Weld (http://jbweld.net/products/jbweld.php) epoxy.

Good luck,

Take a grinder and go for it, clean it out real good with brush and blower, then apply bondo from the auto parts store for concrete on container, I sell fountains and describe how to do it on eBay in the guides section.
