Selleys Roof & Gutter Silicone Sealant

A leaky downpipe – a problem many will be familiar with. It is discoloured around the joint where the leak is and doesn’t look very good at all.

However it should only take you five minutes to fix it.

First pick up a good quality gutter and downpipe sealant such as Selleys Roof & Gutter Silicone Sealant from the hardware store.

Rather than buying a clear or white sealant that requires painting you can choose a coloured one, for instance if your leaking pipe is green you can get a green sealant to match.

If you haven’t already got a good quality corking gun pick one up at your local hardware store as well.

Insert the sealant into the corking gun but before you start to apply the sealant clean the area you will be working on thoroughly.

You need to push the sealant well into the joint to ensure it seals it properly and remains in place for a long time.

Once you have applied the sealant wet your finger with some water, mould the sealant to shape and smooth it down. Do not use saliva, as that will cause mould to grow later on.

Then clean it off with a rag and some turps.

The pipe will not leak anymore, it will look much better and you will be glad to have another niggly little job out of the way.
