Waterproof your cellar, basement or footings
AQUA-STOP is excellent for waterproofing basements, cellars, footings etc made of brick, stone, mortar, concrete or any other masonry products that are sound and absorbent. It can even waterproof ponds.
AQUA-STOP has been used successfully in cellars, basements and footings below ground to prevent water penetration through the wall.
AQUA-STOP is easy to use and apply! It’s applied by brush as slurry on to the pre-wetted masonry surface. Once applied, the product should not be allowed to fully dry out for 3 days, to allow the ‘crystalisation’ process to take place.

- Mix up powder with water (no more than can be applied within 30 minutes)
- Wet down the surface to be treated with a wet brush
- Apply first coat with brush wait till touch dry
- Apply the second coat within 24 hours at right angles to the first
- A trowel can be used on the second coat for a polished finish
What you’ll need

It is important that no less than the minimum amount of product per square metre (m²) be applied and it is essential that two coats are used.
By Brush: 1 to 1.5 kilos per m² per coat
By Trowel: 2 to 2.5 kilos per m² per coat
By Spray: 1.5 kilos per m² per coat
N.B: In areas of excessive water pressure the amount of Aqua-Stop should be increased to a total of 6 kilos per m².
