Hydraulic Cement

How to seal a hole in a pot

First use duck  tape on hole, outside bottom of pot.  (Make sure bottom of pot is dry)

Dampen hole and small area around it on inside of pot.

Mix hydraulic cement in small qt bag to a tooth paste consistency or slightly runnier.  Best to do small batches since it sets up so fast

Cut corner of bag and squeeze out like pastry bag, patting out air bubbles as you pack the hole and create a mushroom shape plug. ( Dome should be ¼ - ½ inches wider than hole)

The quicker you use the cement the better it works.

If you have cracking then do 2nd coat following same steps with new mixture.

It should be dry in 2-3 hours, ready to fill with water.
