    Water seal for jobo 3010

    My jobo 3010 has a small crack in the one of the chamber. It cause some leakage. What kind of water seal do you recommend?

    I had a small crack in a 3005, and marine epoxy fixed it.

    As Ari mentioned, marine epoxy but with a layer of fiber cloth.

    Can the bottom of the 3010 be removed to make the repair on the outside of the damaged chamber? I would think repairing from the inside might make that chamber unusable, or half of it at least.

    I have 3005 and 3006 drums -- so far no repairs needed, but I'll keep an eye on this thread!

    I would think Lexel would do the trick. It's easy to use and bonds to just about anything while remaining flexible.

    The bottom of my 3010 fell out; I siliconed it back.

    yes the bottom can be removed for a smoother repair. As with cowanw, the bottom on my 3006 fell off naturally. I have yet to “properly” fix it. Though hot glue has worked for the meantime. The epoxy being mentioned should do the job, as well as attaching the bottom back on.
    Good luck with the repair Songyun

    I believe Tester's Model glue is the factory recommended adhesive. (Seriously.)

    Update, I bought some silicon based water seal from amazon, and applied to the crack, it works. The crack is small. I will just develop 8-9 sheets instead of 10 sheets each run, which is not a big deal, I uses fuji quick change holder, so 8 sheets works for me.
