    There are non-toxic underwater epoxy sealant around. It only work when you are plugging the leak in the direction of the water flow of the leak. It won't work if you are plugging it against the flow direction of the leak. I'm in Manila, so I can't recommend a brand as the one I've used is a local brand that you won't find there.

    Hope this helps.
