Waterproof your concrete pond or water feature
If you are building a new pond or water feature and need to waterproof it, or waterproofing an old leaky one, then AQUA-STOP is just what you need for any easy and effective fix.
AQUA-STOP is excellent for waterproofing ponds and water features – it’s fish friendly! Waterproof ponds made from bricks, stone, mortar or concrete that are sound and absorbent.
AQUA-STOP has been used successfully on both small and large garden ponds, larger civic fountain pools and even trout farms.
AQUA-STOP is easy to apply to your pond. Simply brush it on as a slurry on to a pre-wetted surface. Apply a second coat with 24 hours. Once both coats have been applied, the product should not be allowed to fully dry out for 3 days, to allow the ‘crystalisation’ process to take place.
