    I have a Unicolor 8X10 drum that leaked like a sieve. I used a scrap piece of pond liner to make a new seal. Works perfectly now and doesn't leak a drop.

    Pond liner can be obtained at landscaping outlets. Outdoor fishponds need a large rubber liner. The liner is available by the yard much like material in a fabric store. It's like very thick inner tube rubber. Actually, an inner tube from a large tire like a grader or skidder might be thick enough.

    With regard to the seal, the original plastic seal had become thin and brittle, and was leaking badly. I removed the old seal, traced it onto the pond liner, and cut it out. Worked like a charm.

    If you need more info, I'll borrow my daughter's digi and post a few shots of the seal.

    Thanks Rick - the description should be enough!
