      Pond Sealer

      I didn't like the blue plaster in my water feature . So I am testing out a new product that can be used for building rooftop gardens. Can be installed on almost any substrate, It can be used for water sealing below grade . Also for potable water tanks . it is a 2 part mix 4 gallons part A 1 quart part B . It cleans up with water . 4.25 gallons does about 100 sq ft. It is elastomeric based goes on with trowel or squeegee . I used roller .It cost about 50.00 per gallon only comes in 4 gallon pail. product is made by( Firestone ) Gaco LM-60

      Did you use the LM60V product that will cling to vertical surfaces?

      How fast does the product start to set up after mixing?

      I did not use the lm60V for vertical surfaces. I tested it on the small box walls 1st and it clung pretty well . On the larger box it has some running . So if I was to do the whole pond with 5' walls I would use The V on it. It starts setting up in about 1 hr.

      it is very thick and trowels out nice ,but I used a roller and brush to get in tight areas. I did not use a primer because I have clean plaster

      I went ahead and drained the pond , Here is 1st coat . I was very pleased with the coverage about 200sq ft per 4 gallon bucket this is the vertical product for the walls . I troweled it on ,Was very messy but cleans up with water.. While I had the pond drained I also installed 4-2'' pipes and 1-4" for future expansion of the filtration
