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.

Rated 4.4 out of 5 by 67 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great waterproof product I use this product for painting the inside of my concrete birdbaths, the inside of cracked clay pots, and anything else that needs to hold water. I have tried it in green, ski blue, clear, and cobalt to match my needs. They all work the same, are easy to mix and use, make a tight waterproof seal, and are somewhat pliable so it won't dry out and crack off like regular paint. The real test will be to see how it holds up through the winter with the items outdoors. Smell is somewhat bad, so use in a ventilated area, preferably OUTDOORS. November 4, 2013
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by True to color. Having used Pond Shield before, I knew what to expect. Mixing the two part, waterproofing paint is straightforward and simple. And this paint is absolutely waterproof. Application will vary according to the surface, but in most cases one coat is sufficient. My only issue with this stuff is the cost-at about $1 per square foot, it ain't cheap. But it does the job, so if you need true waterproofing for a small pond or some other project, this paint could be the ticket. March 3, 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 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 Good sealer Pond Shield is an excellent sealing product. I have tried colored and clear and both types have worked well. One caution is that it starts to set up rather quickly, so you can mix only as much as you can apply in about 15 minutes. I used it to seal a concrete based stream and small pond I built in our yard (see photo). October 30, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great buy! Easy to prep, and mix paint is a little thick. Works great looks great when done. March 11, 2015
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 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
