Aquaseal invest in it .Money maker

Patching my waders for opening day in Conn. Aquaseal tube rock solid and I had to drill a hole in the tube to get to the soft stuff.
While drilling I punched a hole in the side of the tube , now its another $7.00 to get a new one. Is it me or do any of you have the same trouble with this stuff? I guess you know it's fishing season when your Aquaseal tube squirts out the side and not through the top. So buy stocks in this Co. they must sell a ton of this stuff to guys like me. :hehe:

Try putting a small piece of plastic wrap over the tube's opening before putting the cap back on after opening it. The plastic wrap helps to get a good, airtight seal and greatly extends the open tube's shelf life.

And here I'd thought that aquaseal was only good for 2 uses. The first, where you open it normally & the second when you cut off the crimp & take it out with a tongue depressor.

I totally agree! Aquaseal is good for a one time use only. As a matter of fact, once I purchased a tube at Sports Authority and when I finally needed to puncture the seal to get at the "goo", it was solid as a rock. A most overpriced tube of "nothing". I no longer buy it and use Goop instead, a most reliable product and reasonably priced at Home Depot as well as other home stores and hardware stores.

I've been using Loon Soft Head for less sticky tasks, for example, when coating knots / loops as required. A $5 bottle lasts for years.

Aqua Seal vs. Goop

I've often thought of using Goop as replacement for Aqua Seal. Sure is easier on the wallet. Although I've had the same problem with Goop. Now when that happens, I just cut a slit in the side of the tube with a razor knife. Store the cut open tube in a heavy duty zip lok bag. That makes it last for another couple of slits in the tube.

As a side thought. How many tubes of Aqua Seal has anyone applied to a pair of breathable waders before giving in and buying a new pair? :eyecrazy:

Making it last

I have found the best way to get as much use as possible out of Aquaseal or Aquasure is to freeze it as soon as I have finished using it. This does not give it enough time to set. When I need to use it again, drop it in a bowl of hot water from the tap for 5 minutes and it is ready to use.

That Goop Problem that JDJones mentions is the same for me... I have to pin prick the side to get the stuff out after the cap locks...but I do get to use most of the tub even with 150 pin pricks in it.
