  • Kustodian+ Cleaner Tank

    My Kustodian has developed a leak near the cap of the cleaner tank for the second time.
    The first time, I was able to heat the glue that secures the fitting to the tank. This time, I can't get it to seal.

    I don't think silicone will work, I don't think it will stick to the plastic very well. Any suggestions on a glue that you could heat and blend in?
    Guess what?! I got a fever, and the only prescription... is more cowbell!

    I gave up, I can't get it to seal...

    I ordered a new one $225.00 for the tank only.

            Yes the silicone will work, I did the routine maintenance on our machine and had to clean out the filter. Just give it 24 hours to set.

              I have always kept an extra tank as it is a PITA trying to patch one and most of the time you notice it when you need it not when your done.

                      How did the tank crack? I have been working for a short period of time as a mechanic (6 years) and have never heard of one cracking. Was it old or was it dropped or damaged by someone? Just curious.
