I use Fix-a-flat for tires to fix my leaks, just gotta seal of the entrances to the valves and such.

Epoxy putty covers the leak rather than actually filling the airway that's making the leak.

Coat the leaking area with whatever liquid or gel-like high strength glue you have and create a vacuum inside the cannon. It gets drawn inside the path of the leak and will harden inside.

No, the putty is actually quite effective and covering leaks, I couldn't even twist out my old air tank ( epoxied it to the handle of my gun) I had to literally saw/drill/grind it out with a Dremel
