From the submitter:
We got a crack in our toliet seat and, so, for a quick fix, we duct taped it. But my mom wanted it to look pretty so she put it all around the toliet in multiple colors instead of just on where the crack is.
Submitter Chris Strzok says: This hot tub pump "repair" was more like an onion. As layers of duct tape were removed, a swimsuit remnant was revealed, then actual metal duct tape. This covered a layer of electrical tape, a layer of plumbers' putty, and some type of epoxy. It was STILL leaking!
