I used in in my 1999 Jeep Grand Cherokee. It worked great! But I wouldn't use it for anything else other than an old junky vehicle that ain't worth fixing the correct way.I won't even use it for its intended purpose in a automobile engine.
Has anyone tried using
Radiator Stop Leak as a quick cheap fix for a leaking hot water tank? asking for a friend LOL!
Here are common components found in most radiator stop leak additives: Ceramic fibers and particles, Sodium silicate. Aluminum, copper and iron particles. Since that is your drinking and cooking water you just as well put some in your coffee or coolaid.Charles named the number one reason to no use this stuff it will stop holes where you don't want them stopped.
On June 2, 1958, the Nautilus arrived in Everett and spent the night there. The following day, with a load of dignitaries and journalists, the submarine ran to Seattle and docked at Pier 91. A leaking condenser unit threatened the secret mission to the North Pole, but security concerns and time precluded repairs through the usual channels. Experts hit on the idea of using Bar's Leak, an automotive stop-leak product developed for leaking radiators.
Commander William Anderson ordered crewmen to change into civilian clothing. The men fanned out across Seattle in taxicabs to buy cans of Bar's Leak at local service stations.
The sailors in mufti returned with 140 quarts of Bar's Leak, half of which was poured into the condenser. The leak stopped.
While I didn't serve on the Nautilus, I did serve on the next generation nuclear submarines (USS Seadragon) a couple of years later and we had almost the same main steam system and later served on 2 much newer nuclear submarines with more modern plants but they all shared the same general main steam system. The water used is the same water quality as is potable water but in a completely different system and the crew never drinks it.But I don't think it is made for potable water.
