A few ways to move water...

i have a love/hate relationship with flex seal.

here is my main concern- if it fails, at all, the tiniest hole will not only allow water in, but trap it there...failure in a year.

i have used it for about 15 prjects, the spray and the paint. I loved if for my rain barrel, hated it for repairing cracked pots, it SUCKS for mending a crack in plastic ( i tried to fix a garbage can and used tape as the fiber and it failed...a buddy tried to do a kayak :ROFL

it is a cool idea but i found the spray nozzle was awful and would only use the liquid.

i also have coated shelves LOL

BUT- i do like the idea and think i will experiment with a small office wire shelf i have.....in theory, it is an awesome idea, i just doubt the product and the individual applying it
Hi - All the ways I grow are dictated by the choices I have made and the environment in which I live. Please listen and act accordingly

To prevent metal from rusting, start with a clean metal object. It also works on rusted items, if you were lazy beforehand.

Spray it with Rust-oleum Stops Rust Rust Reformer. A couple of coats is best to ensure complete coverage. It is basically a reducing agent in a paint base.

If you want (I recommend this) follow that with a spray of an enamel usable for outdoor applications.
