One of my ibc's has a crack in the corner probably about 100mm long and I want to repair it rather than throw it out. Wondering if anyone has repaired an ibc before and what they used. I don't want it to be too expensive as the ibc didn't cost me much. Any and all help appreciated.

I've glued quite a few different plastics, HDPE is one of the most difficult because of its waxy consistency. The real bummer is if it has one crack it may have sat in the direct sun expediting plastic breakdown. To find out press in on the plastic in several places listening for cracks.
