So I will do some research of what it is and how it works and open a separate thread, so that we can, in the future, point users to that thread.

I'm sure I'll find plenty of "it worked for me", which, as always, we'll have to take at face value - yet with a grain of salt - but I would like to flesh out this product at least with one canonical thread to point future users to.

You 'could' even run on water if the OP lives in a warm weather clime.

EDIT: I went to the Bar's Leak site and was overwhelmed by the number of products, so, I opened a specific thread on Bar's Leak for the OP (and others) to benefit from.

Please read the suggested threads and add value, either by pictures or by descriptions, so the next person stands on your shoulders.
