Leak Ender 2000

Has anyone ever tried "Leak Ender 2000"? I've seen this product advertised on TV and they show it fixing leaks in everything from garden hoses to cracks in the basement. It comes in a spray can and you spray it on the leak. I have my doubts that it'll work as well as shown in the ad, but who knows.

is it 19.95 Plus shipping and handling? That should be a clue right there.

At the point in the story they mention that, the characters are sitting in a restaurant with a "free lunch" sign. I didn't really understand the FIRST time I read it. I may have missed the part about drinks being not included, and expensive.
BTW, that same story is the origin of the "notstupid" I use in my URL.

Leak Ender 2000 is a great product. I no longer need a roofer for my jobs as I just put on the decking and then spray Leak Ender 2000 over the entire roof.
We had a water main break in front of our house (12" main) that was spraying water about 25 feet in the air. When the city came out to fix it, I was surprised to see that they shut off the valve to the pipe, then just sprayed the break (about a 6" long crack and about 1/2" wide) with Leak Ender 2000 and turned the pressure back on! No more leaks.
I was so impressed that I ordered a case of the stuff and have been using it ever since.
I don't even buy water hoses anymore. I just take some paper towel tubes and lay them end to end. Spray them with Leak Ender 2000 and add some hose ends and I am good to go.
On the job last year, one of my employees shot himself in the heart with a nail gun. Luckily, I had a can of Leak Ender 2000 in my truck. I quickly sprayed first the heart itself, then the hole in his chest with the miracle stuff. After zapping him with some jumper cables, he was able to go right back to work. He hasn't even had to go to the doctor!
I have two teen age sons. Worried that they may not listen to my admonitions about waiting until they are married to have sex, I have sprayed both of their members with Leak Ender 2000. I no longer worry about them.
With this stuff you can make your own water storage tanks out of cardboard boxes (I use the one my refrigerator came in). Take the worry out of basement wall waterproofing by spraying on a thin coat of Leak Ender 2000 before you backfill.
I built a boat by using chicken wire for a frame and spraying it with Leak Ender 2000. We hold all of our family reunions on that boat, now.
I am telling you, the uses for this stuff are endless. If it is raining, a quick spray with Leak Ender 2000 and you are dry all day. Don't throw that old coat away, a quick spray with this stuff and instant rain coat!!
My home is entirely made of soda straws with a coating of Leak Ender 2000.
Does it work? You bet!
YMMV

I think were being spammed:( The first post set us up for this glowing report NO SPRAY ON GOO WILL FIX A 12 INCH MAIN!

Let me guess - you weren't exactly in the top half of your graduating class, were you?

They're coating the sky with it. That explains the drought (consider that rain is a sort of leak).

Thanks for all the replies. I didn't think it'd work like shown in the TV ad, but was hoping. I found a TV station that tested it, they tried to repair a garden hose exactly like shown in the ad, didn't work. Here are the results of their test:

Maybe it works under "ideal conditions" (whatever they are). That's something like the wireless devices that claim a range 3 or more times what you actually get.
Most of the advertised stuff I know about is like that. "ideal conditions" provides a way to effectively lie without actually lying. They get around "truth in advertising" laws.
How about: Make a mess with the stuff, and use that as an excuse to buy a new hose. It effectively fixed the leak.
A remember an ad for DSL service (when very few places had DSL), that claimed it's available anywhere in the US. You had to search the fine print to find out that it was available only where DSL was available (but they still said anywhere). The common "give and take" in ads, they give you something then take most of it back.
