How did it break? There's a lot of fixes for busted zippers, a quick search on google might help.

If you do a quick eBay search, there are kits available for around $20 that include new zipper sliders , stops and zipper wax. For a temporary fix, I would try industrial safety pins. Just to hold it up for now

What about a small piece of tarp pinned on to force water out

if you get it fixed i use black zip ties.

they dont stick out like a sore thumb and i feel like it distributes the force on the zipper more evenly
