I don't think I've heard that before...
But luckily for me I know "brain chemistry" ;-)

Anyway, it sure looks solid enough - however, I have never done this before. So good luck!

Maybe its just the pic fooling me...but is the tank cracked sideways and that's what you resealed??

I'd definitely and absolutely ONLY fill this outside on in the tub and let that sit for some 24hrs full with water before you "test" it inside the house :-) Don't wanna see you with wet feed over Christmas :-)
