Water holding tank leak


Our well water holding tank was toast so we had to replace it. We did the same set up that was used to hook up the old tank, just put in new pipes and fixtures. Now it leaks at several seams even though we've used water weld and clamps. Any suggestions? We've taken it apart twice and it still leaks

Thanks for any help

Water holding tank leak


I haven't had any experience with Water Weld or other pipe goop but I have had good luck with Teflon tape. Wrap the pipe threads with four or five layers of white Teflon tape, then screw them together and it should hold water "good".
