So I have the rio grande water tower which I love, but the plastic spout broke off. I would like to use it as intended but with the spout broken off at the fulcrum point, the spout just floats only being attached by the silicone tube. Any ideas on how to fix this so that the spout is actually attached to the water tower, like any ideas of a non plastic spout?

Thanks much....

Here is a pic.

(I don't know what happened to your photo - OneDrive? Maybe they don't like you cross-posting. I could see it by right-click and View Image.) So I saved it and reposted it here.


It would probably help if you told us who made the water tower. Tho I bet the silicon tube is a give-away to anyone who models RG!

Cut off or file that old broke hinge part to flat with the spout, use a flat Brass strap run around the spout epoxy it, leave enough overage to run a pin through it into the water tower. Similar to picture.

Do you know where I can find something like this? I’ve asked a few local stores and no one has a clue....
