Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by lady Works Great on Wash Tubs Too
I tried this product on my wash tubs because dirt, lint, etc would cake up on the cast iron type tubs after a few loads of wash and it was a job to keep the tubs clean, to the point of needing to use a paint scrapper. Pond Armor solved this problem. See Photo of Before and After. I used the 1.5 qt kit for this project. I only needed about 3/4 of the kit but because this was my first using this product, I mixed up the whole kit.
Armor Pond is pretty easy to apply. It went on easier with my small roller versus my paint brush, but both worked OK. It started hardening up after 20 minutes so you need to work fast or get a helper. TIP: Because the directions nor the bonding cans mention anything about clean-up, be prepared to throw away any items you use on your project. I found a bottle of "Krud Kutter" at Home Depot and it removed the Pond Armor off of my hands and fingers (should have worn gloves).
The hardest part of this job was trying to pry off the white plastic safety rings on the Part A & B cans of product. When I called the company, all I got was an answering machine and no return call. I ended up finding the solution on You-Tube. You have to pry them off with a pair of pliers.
I've washed 4 loads of laundry since applying Pond Armor to the tubs and all I had to do is wipe the tubs down with a rag, no caking build-up now. I couldn't be more happier with this fix. And the tubs look a lot nicer now as well. Thumbs up.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by PHnoD not very thick of a coating, strong.
I followed instructions and found a way of mixing smaller amounts because I did not have a large area to cover at one time. I found this to be useful as a coating for under my Lincoln continental, 17 years old and has never seen a winter, I used my old Lincoln as a prototype as to where to coat because of rot, rust and corrosion. I had to dip brush in a cup that I prepared and it was thick to spread but seemed to dry a lot thinner but does appear to have durability with sheen to it. I was in my work garage and had to heat it up all night so I could take this challenge since I do not have license plates on this car for the winter here in New York. I am satisfied, just wish that I could affordably get a spray gun that shoots vertically so I wouldn't be on my back so long, that would have saved mixing time and applying on about 15 amounts in cups because the first batch I mixed started to skin-up so I thought it was drying to fast. 4 stars would have been better if I used this as paint on a roll-able surface. Has a strong smell to it. I did get gray, close to silver of my car (went on underneath by frame).

Hard to find a product that will hold water and this was very easy to use and is working great.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by OrganicinClovis 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.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by fastniky Another alternative uses product.
I used this for painting the walls and floor of my root cellar. There was no water penetration before I painted. My sister works for a company that water seals basements and crawlspaces at a hefty price. She told me I could use this for my root cellar. It worked great. I cleaned the concrete with Miracle Sealants 128 oz. Fast-Acting Phosphoric Acid Cleaner internet item #100672863 before I painted. The cleaner opens the surface to accept the paint. I also scraped and roughed the surface in some areas with 60 grit sand paper, where the surface was very smooth. Seemed to do a great job, time will tell.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by RetiredMCPO Does exactly what it says it will do
This product did exactly as it was supposed to do: it worked! We used it in a large koi pond that is a split level, shallow on one end, and a deeper pool on the other end, lined with a concrete bottom and sides. We have 10 large koi, and had a leak that we could not resolve with any other product. I don't have to describe the loads of work it takes to fix a leak in such a large pond. Emptying water into large containers to conserve water, transferring fish to other holding areas to keep them healthy, and then cleaning and prepping the affected area was a lot of work. But if you use this product exactly as described and recommended, you will get results that you only hoped you could have. We have had the pond as full as it should be, and not one drop of water is evident outside of it. The leaks have apparently all disappeared, and we now have the pond we had originally: completely a place pf peace and beauty, and no annoying and costly leaks.
