Sealing a leaky old cement washtub


I have an old cement washtub in my basement. We recently used some drain cleaner to unclog the drain and now I can see erosion of the cement in the sink basin and drips of water leaking through the cement on the underside of the slink. Is there any product I can use to reveal this old tub?

Yes,there is--it's Hydroban by Latacrete--$100 a gallon.

It will be cheaper to smack that into chunks and buy a new tub.

Beat me to it. I was going to suggest the 20lb sledge solution.
