I have a downspout leading to a large rain barrel that leaks from one or more of the joints.
Instructions I can find on the internet suggest either taking it apart and re-assembling with new sealant, or scraping out the old sealant and putting in new, which may amount to the same thing given the access I have around the joints.
I'd prefer to fix the leaks without taking it apart. Is this possible? For example, is there some kind of tape or wrap I could apply?
It's in the back yard, so appearance is mostly irrelevant.

- I'll do the repair once it warms up and dries out.
- The leaks are present in warm weather too.
