What tent is this? I've recently bought one with the same issue which I repaired
Sadly I can't take it back as it was sold as seen. Tent sealant sounds good though
either1 - take it back and complain or2- you may well find it will be watertight in future - one real drowning may mean the fibres have swelled and it is now okthink I'd be going for taking it back though
Did you buy it new? Or second-hand? If new, surely it's not fit for purpose?
You could try sealing the joints and toggles with tent sealant. To do this properly you need to erect tent when the tent its self is dry and its not raining or likely to.Apply sealant as per instructions and leave 24 hours to dry. Packing away early will mean you could "glue" your tent together and damage it.
Certainly when it rains non-stop for 24 hours any idea how to make it more waterproof? It mostly leaks around where the tags and toggles are sewn in. Any tips for next time?
