    I discovered my sewage pit in my basement has cracks in the bottom. The lining is plastic. Any suggestions on fixing. I would like to put a new bottom in if possible.

      It is a sewage pit for my basement bathroom. I discovered the cracked liner when I was changing my sewage pump out. I was just wondering if anyone had a unique fix to this situation.

        A simple fix is to pour about 1" of hydraullic cement. Pourstone comes to mind. You could try fiberglass and resin, just not sure about the bond to a plastic tank.

        Another fix if it's a perfectly round tank is to laminate a sheet of plastic, acyrlic to the bottom. Plenty of epoxy or rated construction adhesive to seal it in.

          I like the hydraulic cement idea.
