Have a plastic container/tank--HDPE--, that has developed a split. Is there any way to repair/seal the split so that it is liquid tight? Use it for a household bleach solution, 8% strength.

If it has developed a split, any repair will be temporary. I've tried repairing gas tanks. Depending on how much vibration and how clean the surface is, the glues may work for a while. Melting the plastic together sometimes works, and melting the plastic cap from an aerosol can lid can sometimes work as a temporary patch. Ultimately - just replace it.

Call JB Weld. Great customer service, being HDPE there is only one adhesive that will work. They will tell you the part number.
