    Hello,
    I have a question . I’m trying to add a baffle to my sump . I want to empty the sump really quick and glue in a new baffle. Is there any fast drying acrylic glue that will let me to do this and be cured with in an a hour or so ?

    If it's acrylic, weld on 16 should cure in a few hours. The thinner kind will cure even faster. The key is make sure it's very clean edges and very dry
