      As the Thoroseal is a "waterproofer" which would mean it doesn't allow the penetration of moisture molecules, how does the rubber coating adhere without bubbling or blistering off?

      Mike:

      I only build cement (gunite) ponds and I do the following:

      1 coat of stucco, thin to smooth the rough gunite texture.

      2 coats of Thoroseal (one white, one grey to make sure of coverage). This product almost feels and dries like liquid cement. It seals small pores in the gunite, not good for large gaps.

      2 coats of rubber cement. I use a xylene based product. Its great. Sold by the gallons and cost about $ 50

      Hi. I have a gunite pond and we used Herco neoprene product. I chose black, but I think it comes in clear. It wasn't too difficult to apply with brush and roller as long as you used enough thinner. I recall it was pricey ($90 gal. maybe...have to check their website). However, mine has lasted 15 years so far.
