      Do any members have any experience waterproofing a masonry/concrete indoor pond? I haven't read the best reviews on pond armor. I need s a system that's fairly easy to apply without buying specialty sprayers to apply the product..thanks in advance for any assistance.

      Pond armor, liquid rubber, or zevlar would work the best

      Fibre glass/gel coat. In the UK there's plenty of firms that will come out and fibreglass your brick/concrete pond, you can of course do it yourself as well

      I completed the pond using sani-tred liquid rubber base with 2 coats of pond armor..very expensive but should be trouble free. the pond is cycling now!

      I just completed lining the inside of a 71 gallon galvanized tank with Pond Shield.

      The 1.5 quart kid was adequate to apply two coats to the inside of tank with VERY LITTLE excess left over.

      Cost me $75 to $80 just to do this relatively small tank I have - so if you have something larger - I feel your pain.

      But I will say - that as long as this Pond Shield keeps sticking and holds up - it's great stuff. It was very easy for me to work with and damn - it LOOKS great.

      fish safe tanking slurry. I have used it on customers ponds works very well. Much cheaper than fiber glass, if applied correctly wont peel like pond paint. Its commonly used on massive projects. 25kg tub over her costs £25 and it goes a long way. Also I use k.a. because it is "self healing".
