    What to stick this with?



    CLICK HERE TO REMOVE THESE ADVERTS
    The last one was stuck in with some unidentified dark coloured stuff and has lasted ages. So far I have tried silicon sealant, specific plastic glue and (currently) sikaflex all to no avail. Can someone please advise something that might work?
    Thank you!

    What is it? Looks like a mod that allows you to carry your toilet cassette around on a keyring.

    Thetford cassettes are made of polypropylene so should be marked
    PP. Loctite Plastics Adhesive should be OK, there are others. But
    essential to get the existing failed crap off first of course.

    We have a rubber grommet in the spout.
    The fitting/air pipe then fit tightly into the grommet allowing it to flex/turn.
    It could be that trying to fit it securely when it wants to flex is causing it to fail.
    Our when purchased came with this grommet.

    Araldite sounds promising, hadn't thought of that...
    A rubber seal would be great but it didn't come with one and I haven't seen anything suitable. I think you're right, there is so much movement that whatever I do works loose. I have no idea how the last one stayed on so long!

    Araldite wont stick poly,grommet is the way to go,bit of old w/screen moulding may work if stuck,or maybe a seal from a old vacume hover etc.

    I'm surprised that sikaflex hasn't worked. I ran a 32mm domestic drain pipe into my grey tank, so needed to cut and fit a 32mm stub of pipe to connect to. I just cored an interference fit hole in the tank, put the pipe stub in and put a thick bead of sikaflex around the joint. Gave it several days to cure. No problems to date, that was about 6 years ago.

    Yes, I thought I was onto a winner with Sikaflex. I gave it 2 days to dry but it only lasted a few days. I think because it has quite a lot of force applied to it regularly although I do try and be careful when taking the bung in and out.
    I wouldn't have a clue where to get old hoover seals or how to find the right one but will do a quick ebay search and see if anything comes up.
