Pond Shield is a specialized non-toxic epoxy liner made by Pond Armor that is safe for fish and plants. 

Epoxy pond sealer can be used for any type of water feature. Koi ponds, waterfalls, fountains and water gardens. Pond Shield is a NON-HAZMAT. For most applications, a single coat application is all is needed for proper coverage and your finished epoxy pond liner will be complete and virtually maintenance free!

Pond Shield can be applied to concrete, cement, shotcrete, gunnite, stone, tile, wood, steel, aluminum, rock, some plastics, old coatings (as long as they are prepared properly first) fiberglass, and many more surfaces.

Pond Shield is a flexible epoxy that combines superior elongation with sheer tensile strength. Its tensile bond strength even exceeds the internal strength of concrete! Simply mix both parts together and apply with a squeegee and roller (can be sprayed too). Cures to touch within a few hours and is completely fish and plant safe. A 1 1/2 qt. kit will cover 60 sq. ft. at 10 mil.
 

FAQ on Pond Shield

How long before I can put water an fish in my pond?
The instructions will tell you to wait for 72 hours. However, if you inspect every bit of your coating the next day and are sure that it is dry and there are no tacky spots anywhere, you can add water and fish. 

How does Pond Shield compare to other products available to me?
Pond Shield was specifically designed around the flaws of virtually every other coating available in the pond industry. It is competively priced and costs not much more than a rubber liner per square foot but offers much more stability. Pond Shield can be applied by you, the home owner and does not require a specialized crew for installation. Pond Shield has been referred to as "bullet proof", "tough as nails" and "strongest coating ever used" to quote a few. While these are figurative forms of speech, Pond Shield has been designed strong and flexible to provide you with many years of virtually maintenance free service.

Can Pond Shield be applied over other old coatings?
Yes. However, you should take care to properly prepare the surface prior to applying Pond Shield. Be sure to remove any old coating that is coming off, but the best case scenario is to remove all of the old coating prior to application. It's best not to rely on the failing bond of the old coating. If you find that some of the old coating is still bonding sufficiently, then you should sand the remainder with at least 60-grit sandpaper to give the material tooth.

How many coats do I have to apply?
Well that depends on whether you use a pigmented version of Pond Shield or the clear Pond Shield. The pigmented versions of Pond Shield are thick like grease and can be applied in one 10mil coat. Pond Shield clear is only as thick as syrup and should be applied in three 3-4mil coats for a total of 10mils finished thickness.

Can I apply a second coat of Pond Shield over the first?
Yes, but it is not necessary unless you are trying to correct the first coat application. Pond Shield is designed to perform properly at a finished thickness of 10mils. Applying it thicker will not hurt, but will cost more in regards to materials. If you have to touch up and area you can apply Pond Shield over the top of itself with no extra surface preparation within 72 hours of the original application. After that 72 hour period, you should scuff the area being coating to give the material tooth.

I applied Pond Shield and my pond still leaks. What is wrong?
Simply put, you missed something. After your initial coating is applied, you need to go back and inspect the entire surface are for flaws in your application. Ares like cracks, crevices, voids, concrete showing through and any similar areas need to be corrected before you call the job finished. Once you have successfully applied a 100% coating to the interior of your pond, it will not leak.

Do I have to acid etch my concrete before I apply Pond Shield?
Absolutely. There are two very important reasons for acid etching. First, the muriatic acid will remove and calcium deposits that form as concrete cures. These calcium deposits will fall over time anyway and you do not want to have your coating bonded to them. Finally, acid etching will neutralize the alkaline properties in the surface of the concrete, creating a much better bond.

Can I just spot coat a crack in my pond?
That is not advisable. If you give Pond Shield the very best circumstances in which to work, you'll end up with a coating that will give you years and years of service. You should apply a complete coating so that it will work the way it was meant to work.

Do-it-yourself dude.
I built a large brick fountain consiting od a 1.5" high x 7' diameter semicicular wall backed by an 8' high wall. I couldn't get the leaks stopped until I tried this product. I used the amount recommended (1 quart + hardener), but it was not enough to get the job done due to the brick irregularity. I had to use twice the amount at twice the expense. It is the ONLY thing I found that worked. Unfortunately, it is expensive. It cost me over $160 and I purchased three years ago. I recently repurchased because practically all of it fell off, possibly because I did not spray my bricks with muratic acid prior to application, but more likely due to high UV. Prior to falling off, it turned a pale yellow similar to the color of banana baby food. I also think this was due to UV. But, I wanted clear due to the beauty of the bricks. I'd say the life of the product is three years. I wish there were a competing product in order to get the price in line.

We recently purchased the Pond Shield for our fountain because the base was so cracked, it really needed replacing but couldn't find a base that fit so tried this product. It is now holding water and is working very well. It was my parents fountain and they are now deceased so it was very important that I was able to fix the fountain and your product made that possible.

Fantastic product, easier to apply than a neoprene rubber sealer. Final coat of paint applies easily over epoxy coating. Note: If cement walls are rougher than 0.001 inch, less than 60 square feet can be covered with 1-1/2 quart kit, but it is well worth it!

Used product over tile on a fountain. The finish looks good. Only negative comment is that because of its thickness, the product is difficult to measure if you don't use it all at one mixing. Also, would recommend using squeege or flat plastic paddle rather than a brush because of the thickness of the product. Would be helpful to note if there is a 'clean up' solution that can be used if the product accidently gets on something unintended.

After trying SO many different ways to seal my fountain Pond Shield finally did the trick! The product is extremely thick and difficult to spread, but there is no question that is cover all the cracks and completely seals everything.
