About what size is it and what coating was applied to the concrete previously? I'm thinking Pond Armor is the right product for you but I would like to make sure. Here is a link to their site:http://www.pondarmor.com/store/index.htm
THE POND IS PROX 6 X 7 FT. I DO NOT KNOW WHAT THE ORIGINAL COAT WAS. IT WAS GREY AND THE INSTALLER HAS LEFT THE AREA. I WILL LOOK AT THE WEB SITE
IT APPEARS THAT THE POND ARMOUR SHOULD DPO THE JOB. LEE
It is probably just a thin paint-like coating that is only 2-3 mils thick and wasn't cured properly. When you drain the pond I bet there will be little cracks everywhere in the coating. Just scrape these off the best you can and sweep or vacuum the debris off and apply the Pond Armor. It goes on at a 10 mil thickness and is rubberized and therefore less prone to cracking. Hope I could help, good luck with it.
I ORDERED AND HAVE RECEIVED THE COATING. WAITING FOR COOLER WEATHER TO WORK ON PROJECT.
Good deal. Just remember that surface prep is key. I understand the heat thing, we set a record last Friday, 105F! Good luck.
Good news, glad I could help. Let me know if you have any other questions.
