Platypus repair: Which Glue type?
My 3 yaer old 2L platypus bottle has sprung a leak at the shoulder of the neck insert where it tapers to the joint of the body sides. Which is the best glue type to seal it up with?Thanks
I’ve had success using a cyanoacrylate adhesive with a rubber base for some flexibility (Super Glue 3 Power Gel; I guess you can find something similar in the UK) I also reinforced it with a small patch of plastic and no leakes until today.
I had a small hole in one of mine. I used seam grip to fix it.
seam grip has worked ok for me in the past.if worse comes to worse, contact platypus and ask them. They will most likely hook you up on a new bladder. I know their parent company (cascade designs) is super great to work with on stuff like this.
Playtpus has a good warranty policy. One of mine sprung a leak and they just sent me a new one. I had to ship the old one back. Call them first.
