  13. Home Environment
    I've had mine for probably 8 years now and it's really showing signs of wear & age. It has tiny cracks in the bottom. It could be resealed. I'm wondering if it's something my hubby could do himself. Purchase the materials and re-seal (if that's even the correct word for it) Has anyone ever...
