    Think a trip to True Value or any home center, ask the guys best glue for cement, glue the pieces back together, and wrap in tape to hold until it drys, or use a rachet strap. Pick up a pre-mix cement in a bottle with an applicator nipple thats ready to go, or buy a box of it, and work it in over the glued sections using a plastic spatula. Then I would seal it using some waterproof sealer. You might also do those top edges with cracks while your at it.

    Does that bowl just sit on top of the stand? If so you could buy a replacement bowl or form your own bowl by following these instructions I found on the web.

    Hope that helps!

    Gorilla glue. It will fix anything. I had a concrete fountain that cracked in half and I used gorilla glue. It happened 6 yeas ago and still holding up with no leaks.

    I also think that Gorilla Glue will hold up! Use it liberally.

    Ahhhh Gorilla glue is the bestest isn't it? Other then that maybe a 2 part epoxy might be in order.

    i would try an epoxy.. they even have that stuff at lowes or home depot.. its like putty.. but you only have a very short time to put the putt on before its hardens.. so make sure you are all ready to go

    E6000 glue is the best and is waterproof.
