  • I recently bought an old house that needs a lot of help. I used this to make temporary fixes in a shower and tub and 2 months later they are still holding up great.

  • Expiration date is "one year after purchase" which was a clue. One day after purchase product was gooey and stiff. Impossible to smooth on application.Didn't realize how bad it was til bought a second one after HD restocked. Worked up smooth and just the right consistency for applying.If they only have a few left in stock, wait for some sucker to buy them than get the new batch.

  • I had a tub/shower that had developed a crack in the curve of the side / bottom. By following the instructions this product sealed the crack and undoubtedly kept me from having to purchase a new tub and pay a plumber to install (since I'm quite sure installing a new tub / shower enclosure is beyond me). I was very careful to mix the paste and hardener thoroughly, and let it set up for 24 hours before sanding. After 24 hours it was rock-hard.

  • I used this product to repair the skirt of a very expensive toilet (not the interior bowl). If you have a repair as large as mine be sure to apply the product in layers, allowing it time to cure between layers.Make sure the product is fresh. The first box I used (from a different store) was old, and the gel was almost hard. Unfortunately, there is no "use by" date on the package so you won't know until you unscrew the jar.While not a perfect color match, the repair is only noticeable if you get down on your hands and knees to inspect it.

  • Thisis a good product only if you mix the hardener in well. If you don’t mix for about 30 seconds or so it will not harden up…trust me I learned the hard way.

  • This product may work, if it wasn't dried up

  • I bought this product, which looked like it would be perfect for what I needed. However, I didn't get the chance to use it because the gel was mostly dried up. I tried for a long time to knead the gel and mix it back to the right consistency. Ended up with a gel with hard lumps. I got my money back without problem. But, I wanted to finish this project so I checked the other kits and couldn't find any of the 12 packs that weren't dried. There should be an experation date on the product. I hope other people have better luck.

  • Awful Product

  • Terrible. Does not last. Three weeks after you apply the patch it starts peeling up and needs to be done again.

  • I used this product to fix a hole in a fiberglass tub. The "kit" comes with an applicator (Popsicle stick), resin, hardener, two small pieces of sand paper, an alcohol pad, and some polishing compound.The product works just as i expected. It worked. However, I was a little disappointed with the kit. First: The applicator did absolutely nothing to help the aesthetics of the patch. In fact, it made the application difficult. I would recommend using a plastic putty knife or rubber Bondo tool. Second: There is not enough sand paper to sand the surface smooth. Third: The color didn't match and there is no pigment in the kit to tint it yourself.I was happy to fix the 1/4" hole and after 2 weeks of use it has not failed.Buy this product if you're not super concerned about the color match and also pick up some extra sand paper and an applicator while you're at The Home Depot.
