Sani-Tred products are the most unique, versatile and problem solving pond coating and pond waterproofing materials available today. Sani-Tred pond repair products are NOT ‘pond paints’ they are permanently bonding, permanently flexible and can never bubble, chip, peel, crack, delaminate or leak for the life of the structure. Sani-Tred products are over 4 times stronger than ‘seemingly similar’ products coupled with many more unique qualities and abilities others don’t have which make Sani-Tred products superior to the rest. Sani-Tred’s Unique Product Qualities are: Flexible Penetration Technology®, Permanent Elongation™, and Elongation Memory Technology®
Step by Step Pond/Fountain Waterproofing and Repair:
1. 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.
Sanitred’s Basement Waterproofing Products Unique Qualities explains and demonstrates how PermaFlex permanently adheres to concrete.
2. Prime the substrate with PermaFlex (240 sq ft per gal). Cement block surfaces need 2 prime coats of PermaFlex. Shown using Light Grey.
Primed – PermaFlex (Showing Light Grey)
3.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.

4. Topcoat using PermaFlex (240 sq ft per gal). Shown using Light Tan.
Top Coat – PermaFlex (Showing Light Tan)
Poured concrete ponds, brick ponds, stone/mortar ponds and most other substrates need 2 coats of PermaFlex. Cement block walls require 3 coats of PermaFlex because block is extremely porous. If chlorine will be used to maintain water quality, apply at least 1 coat of a good 2-part swimming pool epoxy.

Sani-Tred products are far superior to any liner for many reasons:
- Liners are not permanently bonded. Sani-Tred is a ‘permanently bonded system’.
- If a liner has just one flaw, the entire system fails. Sani-Tred can be gouged and scraped without ever creating a leak.
- Water is allowed to migrate behind liners; it is impossible for water to come between the substrate and a Sani-Tred seal.
- Liners have seams, Sani-Tred is ‘seamless’.
- Liners have temporary seals around plumbing and fixtures; Sani-Tred creates a permanent seal around plumbing and fixtures.
- Liners are typically black; Sani-Tred comes in a variety of colors (including black).
- It is commonly known that one must take great care when setting stones on a liner. Liners are easily damaged and pond liner repair is temporary. Sani-Tred is rated for vehicle traffic. Even boulders do not threaten a Sani-Tred seal.
Provides Complete Water Tight Integrity Regardless of Freeze-Thaw Cycles
Due to unique technical breakthroughs in polymer chemistry, a complete pond or fountain waterproofing, crack and freeze damage repair system is both available and affordable for the home owner or commercial fountain or pond owner! Put an end to pond leaking forever.
No other products on earth can duplicate this transformation, because no other single component coating product may be applied at great thickness like LRB (Liquid Rubber Base), molecularly bond to themselves and retain negative hydrostatic pressure. Additional advantages are that the coating and repairs remain flexible, are permanently bonded to the surface and will expand and contract with the concrete during temperature extremes to remain water tight!
Sani-Tred is the only waterproofing system that can completely seal any pond or fountain permanently, no matter how damaged or deteriorated. Sani-Tred products have repaired many ponds and fountains that have been determined by experts as un-repairable with no recourse but to destroy or fill in the pond or fountain and start over!
If you feel that your pond or fountain is beyond hope, call or e-mail and we will provide specialized information to solve virtually any pond or fountain repair problem. If you have a pond or fountain that is constructed with a concrete , brick, or stone bottom you can easily and permanently transform and seal the pond or fountain using Sani-Tred products to eliminate the need to regularly replace liners and eliminate UV damage, puncture and lateral leaking problems associated with temporary liners.
Sani-Tred LRB (Liquid Rubber Base), a single component polyurethane product, has the unique ability to cure at any thickness of application without gassing and molecularly bonds to itself new-to-old. These chemically unique features, when coupled with Sani-Tred PermaFlex’s ability to penetrate concrete, creates a waterproofing system which can retain almost sixty times the amount of negative hydrostatic pressure normally found in residential or commercial ponds and fountains. These are some qualities of Sani-Tred products that set Sani-Tred above all other products in the world in the field of pond or fountain waterproofing. A perfect pond seal is easy to achieve with the right pond sealant.
NOTE: For all pond or fountain waterproofing installations, where retaining negative hydrostatic pressure is required, it is critical that all “scrim coatings”, old paints, sealers, waterproofing agents etc, must be removed to allow Sani-Tred products to penetrate and bond to the original concrete surfaces.
Cracked, leaking or damaged structures are easily and permanently repaired, with even major repairs and construction flaws being repaired and hidden by Sani-Treds’ versatile and flexible qualities. The need to annually patch and repair, along with the inconvenience and expense, is no longer necessary with Sani-Treds’ permanent flexible bonded repair system. If the original Sani-Tred surface is damaged, it is easily spot repaired without complete recoating. If damaged, repairs weld to themselves, new to old with a molecular bond which is unique to the coatings industry. Pond repair and water fountain repair is now easy. Any do it yourself water fountains or DIY pond can be sealed forever.
