Repairing cracks in concrete utility sink


I'd like to fix some leaky cracks in a concrete utility sink at my sister's. On hand is some Thoro Waterplug. Is this the right product? Should the cracks be enlarged to allow more area for repair material to adhere to? Am planning on enlarging cracks slightly on inside of sink and applying Thoro material. Right idea? Wrong idea? Other than pouring, I haven't worked with concrete before.

Thanks in advance,
Mark

i'd bet you can not get the cracks dry, so covering them is all you can do. is the the epoxy used to anchor rebar in concrete cheaper than a plastic Ho De Po sink and your time????
