  • Liquid Rubber is ideal for sealing ponds as it has the ability to withsand water long term thanks to its high elasticity.
  • 15L bucket of Liquid Rubber should give you about 8m2 coverage with 3 coats.
  • Liquid Rubber is free from harmful chemicals and is certified for potable water (safe for human drinking water).

How to apply Liquid Rubber for a pond - Step by step guide

Step 1 - Clean & Prepare

Start by cleaning the pond thoroughly. We recommend high pressure washing. Make sure that the surface is free of mold, dust, mildew etc. 

Sometimes it's also a good idea to scuff back the surface lightly to ensure good bonding surface for Liquid Rubber (particularly when the surface is quite smooth). 

Step 2 - Detail with liquid rubber & Bandage

If your pond has any areas that require extra reinforcement now is the time to detail. Apply Liquid Rubber and bandage on all joins, corners, penetrations etc. 

Simply brush on a bit of Liquid Rubber, lay the bandage and prush over the bandage until the bandage is saturated and bonds to the surface.

Watch the video below on how to use bandage. 

Step 3 - Apply 3 coats of Liquid rubber

All ponds require at least 3 coats of Liquid Rubber - this is done by applying one coat at the time allowing each coat to dry for approx. 24 hours before applying the next coat. 

Apply the product with a brush or a roller in a slightly thicker manner than normal paint (not too thick though!). 

Step 4 - Let cure for minimum 3 weeks & Fill

Once you have applied the 3 coats of Liquid Rubber it is vital that you allow the membrane to fully cure for minimum 3-4 weeks. This is dependent on climatic conditions. 

Once fully cured, you can fill your pond with water!
