In this instructable I will demonstrate how to repair/patch a leaking water softener reservoir.
I will try to keep this "ible" short and sweet.

Note I also took apart and cleaned and re-lubed all of the O-rings, and the venturi. If you are going to have it taken apart you should just complete the tuneup as well, so I did. That's not part of this instructable. Sorry.

Here are some good links

Always a good idea to place brine tank on top of a piece of polystyrene foam - like the blue or pink foam insulation.
