I would worry about something leaching out of the crazy glue into your water.

Not so actually, it's used to seal wounds. The main thing to look for with super glue gels is the ingredient cyanoacrylate. It will mean it's safe to use, just be sure it's a gel and not the regular stuff. Akward to use otherwise.

Cheers
Steve
