Melted hole in side of rubbermaid stock tank

I melted a hole in the side of my rubbermaid stock tank last winter with a tank heater.  Is there anyway to repair it that will be relatively non-toxic to my horses' winter water suppy?

How do I fix a hole in the floor of a rubbermaid shed?

Go get flexseal... if it's a thin crack, you can use epoxy glue which is very strong. Flexseal is sold at Walmart, General Dollar etc... it's basically rubber/plastic in a can... apply gently, then apply again as needed...

I have a Honeywell Oil filled heater, HZ 680 series. When both switches are turned on, they light up but there is no heat. Also, a funny smell then the switches automatically turn off. Is there anything...

These heaters last about three years,and are throw aways,unless you have some in the ole shed like I do.Checking the switches is the first thing to do,remove them to see if they are burned up on the other side where the connection is.If they are,that could be the smell,or the thermostat is melted down,and smelling,again,throw away,,or save it,and buy a new one,and you will have parts for when it goes out,if the switches are melted down,a compatible switch,if found,can be replaced in the heater,but something made the switches melt down,most likely a heating element in the tanks,non replacable.

I have a switch on the wall that controls the flame with a switch inside the fireplace. we would just leave the switch inside the fireplace off and use the wall switch. Now it dosent work with the wall...

you need to get wall switch and wire to this changed as it is impossible to test these for faults as can happen after a few hours of operating (usually to do with the heat of the fire place dso if it has a fan hopefully you are using it it'll keep components cooler in heater and stop things like this happening), but i'm assuming that cable to wall switch runs down side of heater or something and i'm guessing its got hot maybe melted to side of heater and may have damaged wall switch so i would replace both, this has really been the only problem i have had all year with heaters and its due to turning the fan off which you can do in some heaters that arn't entirly designed for heating, if you are heating with a gas heater its important to run fan no matter how noisey it may be and there not that noisey really just turn tv up i'd rather be warm through winter than hear my tv so i'd rather hear a fan than the news, most of the time it sounds more intresting anyway and i have heard of mechanics that have pulled out melted fans from heaters because they were off, i have found cables starting to melt too so its a safety issue too and lastley if your not running fan heat goes up flu waste of money so i think its important and would have maore than half of call outs less as it has been a problem with heaters with turning fan off, i may be wrong but i'm guessing this may be the problem and if you do use fan the cable to wall switch may be down side of heater making contact with a hot surface and melting causing problem i would also do switch aswell as heat could have damaged to as cable would have conducted heat to switch

LOL.... your fuel is not boiling.... the closer propane gets to its vaporization point (-44%F) the less vapor it produces. clean the snow off of the 100# or lay it on its side to give it more surface area for vaporization.
