I second the aquarium sealant, but i would give a good few days to fully cure. I would not use non-aquarium safe silicon caulk or sealant of any type, it might off-gas more or longer, and many contain ingrediants to inhibit mold and mildew.

Aquarium sealant smells like vinegar before it cures. As I remember right, it cures within 24 hours. I used it in the past when we had fish tanks in the house.

I would love to lay my hands on some UV-cured goop used by dentists.
That has got to have the shortest curing time and the lowest toxicity of anything.

I once was lost in apnea; but now I'm found--breathing easily all night long.

They put my De-Fib in 10-09-17 and closed the hole in my chest with a glue and a uv light. Only bad thing looks like the got a lot of excess inside me. I guess he wasn't a boob doctor. I guess I won't be using that two piece bathing suit next spring. Jim

Maturity is the ability to stick with a job until it's finished; the ability to do a job without being supervised; the ability to carry money without spending it; and the ability to bear an injustice without wanting to get even.

The latest bondic video mentioned that it originated with the dental industry.

Weren't dentists the people that used mercury fillings for decades? :roll: Jim

If you wanted to get fancy you can order you a plastic welding kit from Harbor Freight or some other outfit and it would probably work if you could find the crack but I think it would be a much cheaper and less time consuming just to replace the water chamber!! LOL!

I already ordered and received a new water chamber (that was ordered the night I realized I broke it) but I do have some epoxy that I got at the local hardware store that didn't cost much that I am going to try and see how it might work as an emergency repair.
I just haven't had the time or felt much like sitting down and getting it done. Things have been a bit hectic with my mom and I am still a bit worn out from this lingering cold thing I picked up at the doctor's office.
I may have to RISE but I refuse to SHINE.

A brand new A10 humidifier tub assembly is currently about $20 from CPAP.com. You wouldn't want to spend very much on material to repair a damaged unit :idea:

and not to mention that, has any tried to stick anything including silicon onto a silicon. that will flex? If there is such a product, we would know about it. Some loctite stuff will stick, but won't flex.

The reading comprehension disabilities of people are simply amazing... in the *FIRST POST* Pugsy said:

Mainly I just want to see if it can be fixed and still be usable. Just to do it. Not because I need to use it again or still.


And how many people said "it's not worth it, new ones are cheap!" when she *CLEARLY* said at the onset that she was doing it to gain knowledge.

Yeah.....I was sitting here scratching my head over that one yesterday when I again had someone be so kind as to tell me how cheap they were and what a waste of time it was to try to fix it.

I find it amazing that people can't seem to read and answer the question as it was put forth and if they can't answer the question why they have to say anything at all.
Do they
1....not bother to read the entire post
2....not bother to read subsequent posts

I think I will get off my lazy ass and go play with the damn thing right now and see if I can make a teeny tiny bead of epoxy stick on that troublesome corner where it leaks.

Unfortunately that has become all to common here.

Okay...plan was one of those things that sounded good in my head but that's about as good as it got.

Messing with the epoxy stuff is a huge PITA and I made a god awful mess and now I can't get the crap off my hands....and I got it everywhere but where I wanted it.

Plan B....for emergency short term fix..... Flex seal tape on the outside. Impossible to do anything on the inside due to space constraints.
Going to put some on now and see if it holds without leaking.

It will be interesting to see if Plan B works. Nothing wrong with at least trying before pitching something. The rest of us can learn from your experiment - for example, I've already learned to be very, very careful with epoxy. :)
