Product Overview

Pond Shield is a non-toxic epoxy liner designed for the pond and water feature industry. Created to construction water features or ponds with a more designer, formal or natural look than rubber liners are able to offer with no more unsightly folds or creases. In addition, unlike rubber liners, Pond Shield is available in eight colors - Black, Clear, Competition Blue, Sky Blue, Forest Green, Tan, Gray and White. Pond Shield is used for waterproofing structured surfaces found in water features such as Koi ponds, pools, fountains, aquariums, salt water tanks, hydroponics, streams, waterfalls, reflecting pools, mini lakes, holding tanks, etc. Easily applied and easy to maintain, for most applications, a single coat application is all that is needed for proper coverage. In addition, your pond will be virtually maintenance free with a surface that algae can be easily wiped off of and is safe for fish and plants. Pond Shield offers both strength and flexibility in a coating, strength and flexibility that is tested from -78° F to 140° F. Pond Shield is an epoxy pond liner that has been specifically designed to bond to porous or abraded materials. With a tensile bond strength stronger than the internal strength of the concrete, your single coat of Pond Shield epoxy will stick to what you apply it to. Over time, hairline cracks can form in concrete, mortar or grout joints. Being flexible, Pond Shield resists mimic cracking and provides the best protection possible in a coating.

Answer: 
This is very thick and heavy like glass. I don't see how ceramic floats, but it may add some weight to it so it sinks. If they are small, it may work.

Does this product work for waterfalls? I've used other epoxy and the speed of the water has peeled the epoxy away.

Answer: 
Water can CUT stone. Nothing you use on moving water will stop it from etching away at the surface. This product is tough as nails, like stone, especially if two coats are used, but over time, nature wins. Look at the Grand Canyon to see what running water will do to stone. I used this on a bird bath and after 3 years the color has faded in spots but peeling is doubtful.

Answer: 
Yes, Sprinkle it ON TOP after you paint so that it sits on the surface. The paint is EXTREMELY thick so adding it to the paint will make it IMPOSSIBLE to paint on. Paint surface first, then throw sand on top BEFORE it dries. NEVER paint stairs with this stuff, its dries like GLASS.

Rated 4.3 out of 5 by 89 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Nice coating for a dog pool We have been using this for awhile in a small dog pool I dug out and laid with concrete. This product went on smooth and it only took 1 coat. It stuck to the concrete just fine. Keeps water in the puddle pool so the pups can use it all summer long. Easy to wipe down the coating at end of summer for winter emptiness. Cleans really easily to keep slime out and algae if any. Has lasted over a year with no problems. Eventually it may need to be recoated but so far it's lasting fairly long even in hot summer sun. May 5, 2016
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Good but not as easy to use as the clear 2nd time we used this product. The first was clear and it went on much easier. the black shown in this review was more of a gel and a lot harder to spread. As you can see from the photos it flashed at 20 minutes, before we could finish. Still had about 25% of product left. There was two of us spreading to get it on as fast as possible. We like the end result. The black is very glossy and should set off the green plants nicely. If it didn't flash so soon we would have given it five stars. Won't know for a few more weeks if it seals properly as we had to order online. July 4, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Hard to use This is a good product although it is very expensive since it done only about 1/2 of the coverage stated. it is very thick and will start to harden in about 10 minutes. I ordered 1 qt to seal a new concrete fishpond. i mixed it in a mouthwash plastic 2" cup making up about a regular cup at a time. (You will also need a little denatured alcohol to thin it.) I had no problem other than coverage. I applied it with a throw away brush. looks petty good after 2nd coat. For the second pond i had to reorder and feeling more confident i mixed up a double batch. (2 cups) This turned out to be a mistake as it hardened before I could apply it all. (About 15 min.) Also clean up any mess as i had a few drops on the patio and had to grind it off. June 25, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Provides a great leak-proof seal I have my pond-less water feature professionally installed but later I wanted to add a new weir so I could have a waterfall on the top of the stream. It took a friend and I a weekend to do it, with adding a new pump to the tank and all the plumbing but it came out great. I used the epoxy in the areas where I was bringing more water and there are no leaks at all. We might have put it on too thick since I most of it and it wasn't 60 sq ft. But overall it is a great product and I haven't seen anything like it before. September 10, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 2nd kit worked much better. Beware of old product. This is my 2nd review of the black. The first was 3 stars because it setup too quickly. We thought it was because of the black pigment. Our first project we used the clear with great results. Because the first can of black setup so quickly we had to get a 2nd kit to finish the project. This kit must have been much fresher as it went on easy and smooth, just like the clear. Beware if you're black pigment can is thick and gel like it is likely old and may setup in half the time as a fresh can. We diluted with denatured alcohol to make it easier to brush on. It went on like a nice glace. We were about to trash the pond because it was leaking near the bottom but we spent so much time installing and landscaping this was our last ditch effort. A different product we first tried did not seal the leak. You may see in a previous review the pond shell was originally lighter grey but is now shiny black. We like this much better. it makes the green plants really pop. Pay no attention to our gnome. he hates getting his picture taken. July 9, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Awesome Product I got this for lining my wheelbarrow after the powder coating had become scratched and the underlying metal had begun to rust. I knew it wasn't a standard use for a pond liner, but I figured I'd give it a shot anyway. Turns out, this stuff makes a GREAT wheelbarrow liner. Awesome job, Pond Shield, on creating a super versatile product that's easy to apply! The kit comes with detailed instructions and two separate parts of the epoxy, as well as a thickness gauge for each coat. There are separate instructions for two different methods of application: squeegeeing the coating onto a smooth surface, and brushing/rolling the coating onto a rough surface. I used the rough surface instructions since there's a big note at the top that says this method is best for first-time users. If you're using the rough surface instructions, you'll also need a little bit of denatured alcohol to thin the mixture. I used a plastic cup with volume lines marked on it to mix everything up. Each batch (1/4 of the 1.5 qt kit) fit just about perfectly in one 16 oz cup, with just enough room to mix it up with a paint stirrer. Before starting, I sanded as much of the rust and loose powder coating away that I could, and then wiped everything down with vinegar. (I skipped the recommended acid etch and metal primer, I guess I'll find out if that was a mistake later. I also didn't want to take off more of the powder coat than I needed to, in case the coating didn't work properly. I realize it's completely my fault for not prepping the surface correctly if it starts to peel on down the road, but so far it looks to be holding well!) Application was easy: I poured the epoxy over the surface and spread it around with a foam brush. It leveled well, with absolutely no visible brush strokes. The second coat went on just as easily, but I got it a little thick in some places and there are a few spots with visible runs. Dry time was fast, and when I came out to check on the first coat after a few hours, I was surprised to find even the thick globs of the epoxy on the drop cloth were completely dry too. After it dried, the epoxy still has a super glossy wet look to it. I scraped some metal tools around on it a little after 24 hours of cure time, and aside from some cosmetic marks, no real damage resulted. I have no doubt that this stuff can hold up to everyday wear and tear as a pond liner, as long as it's fairly UV resistant. July 3, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Exactly What I Needed,but... This was exactly what I needed, but it was for a special project. I have a sunken 'grotto' with a pondless fountain that had developped a leak. The plastic pond tub I had buried to recirculate the water deformed under the weight of a short granite pillar I use to bubble the water and eventually started leaking. I had tried pond liner patches and rubber based paint, but they only worked temporarily. This product did exactly what I needed, which was to flow into the little leaks and create a new stronger bottom surface that was both waterproof and would take the weight. The instructions you receive are intimidating but that's mostly due to detail about prep and warnings for liability purposes. You also have to get some alcohol that's not incuded. It's really simple, you mix the ingredients in order and proportion per the steps and you get a substance about the consistency of maple syrup, just as sticky too. I used a gallon milk jug with the spout cut off to mix and used the cut off spout as the spreader. Application was really simple for me, I just poured the mix in and spread it around. I think this would be pretty easy to use on a regular continuous surface but really tough on a rough or brokem up surface like rocks. Also you don't get much. The 1 1/2 quart was ideal for me, but if you were going to try for the 30 s.f. it talks about you would almost certainly need a second coat. 30 s.f. isn't much anyway, 6'x5', about the size of a full size bed? As I say this product worked perfectly for me in this instance. I have a water course/ waterfall that is losing water between ponds in my backyard, and even after using this product I am still wondering how I will fix that problem. I think this could work, but I would still have all tthe backbreaking prep to do and it would cost a fortune. September 5, 2013
