Choosing the Right Pond Sealer

Choosing the right pond sealer is crucial for keeping your backyard pond waterproof and free of leaks. But while keeping your backyard pond sealed is incredibly important, it can also be a little confusing. There are a lot of liquid pond sealers to choose from in all types and materials, so it’s a good idea to do some research before you buy something without knowing much about it.

Go into any home improvement store and you’ll find no shortage of sealants, paints, and liners meant for backyard ponds. But with all the options, you need to choose the best pond sealants for your particular pond. To that effect, let’s look at a couple of your pond sealing options.


Rubber liners are used in many ponds as a way of preventing leaks. While rubber liners are a cheap option for pond sealing, they also have some drawbacks. Rubber pond liners are effective when they’re complete, but once a tear, rip, or hole appears, your entire liner will need to be replaced. This replacement won’t be very costly, but will require quite a bit of labor and time.

The SANI-TRED® Solution

Unlike rubber liners, SANI-TRED® is a liquid rubber waterproofing material that is painted directly to the inside of your pond, adheres to the base material (concrete, block, brick, even wood), then hardens to create a 100% permanent waterproof barrier. By forming this barrier, SANI-TRED’s liquid rubber pond sealer protects your pond from cracks, holes, and leaks that threaten your pond. Unlike rubber liners, SANI-TRED® forms a permanent bond with your pond’s base material to keep water exactly where it belongs. SANI-TRED® will not break, tear, chip, crack, or delaminate, protecting your pond for the life of the structure. To keep your pond completely sealed and looking beautiful for many years to come, choose SANI-TRED® as a clear pond sealer.
