Just moved in. Have a large in-ground, 3-pond water fountain. Each pond is
made up of a stone rim and pebble -concrete base. It apparently hasn't been
active for a few years. Once I got it cleaned out, I filled all the ponds
with water. They didn't hold water overnight. There are not any obvious
cracks, holes,etc. I suspect the concrete is porous. Is there any solutions
such as a sealer that can be sprayed or painted on the concrete base?. Was
thinking of Dri-loc (or something) for basement wall leaks...but think that
would not look right. Aside from completely rebuilding the ponds with the
proper liners...any thoughts??
I have used two things, both seemed to work.
First for a small project I used some of that dip rubber used for tool
For a larger project, I had just done my garage floor with a nice 2 part
epoxy and that is still working.
Not funny. The *&$% builder did not slop the concrete well in the
garage so it does not drain properly. I have several puddle areas. If I
ever build again, I will demand a test to assure that each bay drains to the
center of that bay and out the door before closing.
Not so sure about the concrete (being porous).... assuming this has a
pump/tubing for the fountains, have you checked the tubing/pump/seals?
If it is the concrete, sounds like time for a liner....
