It has over time developed a hole in the bowl . I need to know the best way to repair it. The hole is about the size of a quarter and growing. Thanks

    I'd use 'Quickrete'.... it's a quick set concrete that adheres to concrete (regular concrete does NOT stick to regular concrete). Clean the hole, make sure there are no loose pieces of concrete or stones, rinse and fill with Quickrete.... best repair material, especially if you need to mold or shape (a gloved finger will work as well as a trowel on large surfaces).

    Jetset concrete mix is the quickest drying & is used by septic tank installers to put risers on septic tanks. Wear gloves, because you really DONT want to get this one your skin! You could put a thin coat inside your bird bath & it'll seal it well.

    We used Flex Seal (which is advertised on TV and available in hardware stores) to mend our birdbath. Make sure to clean the patches well with a brush before applying.

    make up some concrete and fill in the hole or make a pretty planter out of it

    As a last resort, you can plant flowers or some type of greenery in it. I did this for my mother and it turned out beautifully.
