Exclamation Is this safe epoxy? Please reply quickly.

Well I made this DIY canister filter awhile ago and I tried to use this silicone stuff they use for windows and aquariums and such and it just kept ripping off, so the other day a pipe in my house started to leak so my parents went out and got some of this epoxy stuff. So I thought that this might be good and stronger to use instead of silicone. But I was wondering if it would be aquarium safe.

It's call Harvey's Permanent Soil Seal. It says you can use it on soil pipes, cracked tubs, flush boxes, anchor fasteners. It also says it is impervious to water, steam, oil, and gasoline.


So you think that would work? Please reply.

It doesn't say NSF certified so I wouldn't use it. I used Plumbers Expoy Putty which is made by the same company. Ace Hardware sells it.
