Default 30 qt alum. pot leaking...

Filled my pot for the first time and notice one of the rivets on the handle is leaking... Is there a fix for this..?

Yup, with a very solid backing (perhaps the head of a sledge hammer) pound the rivet with another hammer to smash it.

That is great. When in doubt just hit it with a hammer, or two.
