How To Repair a Pond Or Fountain
Step by Step Pond/Fountain Waterproofing and Repair:
Step 1 Prepare
The first thing you would do is prepare the substrate. Meaning remove any loose crumbly substrate, make sure the substrate is clean, dry, free of any previous applied products, and foreign matter.
Step 2 Prime
Prime the substrate with PermaFlex (240 sq ft per gal). Cement block surfaces need 2 prime coats of PermaFlex. Shown using Light Grey.
Step 3 Patch
Patch and profile any joints, seams, cracks, holes and rough areas using LRB/TAV mixture (Liquid Rubber Base, Thickening Activator). 2-parts LRB is mixed with 1-part TAV. LRB can be used by itself (as a liquid membrane) to smooth out a rough floor. Wall/floor junctions require a 1” diameter bead of LRB/TAV mixture and most cracks use a 3/4″ diameter bead.
