Have you ever had something in the house you just knew you might someday need, then were delighted when the occasion arose? That happened to us this week during our grandchildren’s holiday visit. The Air-bed was inflated ready for bedtime but would not stay that way. We found the leak – a small hole – and reached for the can of Flex Seal™ we had previously ordered “just in case”. The Flex Seal saved the day. One application and no more leak! I had ordered Flex Seal after a neighbor told me he patched a 100′ garden hose as well as a leaking rain gutter with it.

Flex Seal is a portable, easy to use spray that coats, seals and protects just about everything. Flex Seal shoots out a thick, rubberized liquid, seeps into cracks and holes and dries to a watertight, flexible, rubberized coating. Once dry, Flex Seal can be painted any color. Flex Seal is easy to carry, easy to apply and eliminates messy clean-up or heavy pails.
Flex Seal is recommended for leaking roofs, flashings, gutters and downspouts, as well as for skylights and windowsills, hoses and drainpipes, duct work, air conditioning drip pans and so much more.
Check out the official commercial below for just some of the many uses for Flex Seal!
Flex Seal stops leaks fast and is the easy way to coat, seal and protect almost anything,” according to the manufacturer. A 14-ounce can of the liquid is supposed to treat 2 to 12 square feet. I was happy to see that the June 2012 issue of Consumer Reports magazine under the headline “Flex Seal: Handyman in a Can?” backs up the manufacturer’s claims. They confirmed that a rowboat with a screen bottom coated with Flex Seal™ indeed did float as seen in the Flex Seal commercial.
The manufacturer warns that it may take several applications for some leaks to be controlled, and that Flex Seal may not stand up to extremely large water pressures. I did try using Flex Seal to prevent the junction between an outdoor hose cock and the garden hose from squirting and losing pressure. Since this was not a true leak, it did not work. I resorted to the old fashioned way — tightening the connection with a wrench. Common sense will dictate when and when not to use the product. By the way I would suggest protecting the area to be sprayed with Flex Seal with a drop cloth or newspapers as things can get messy, since the black material is not attractive as it comes out of the can. The good news? Flex Seal takes a coat of paint quite well.
