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 HDKevin Good for a change of scenery
I wanted a change in appearance for my decorative water feature. The Pond Shield gave it the fresh modern look that I was looking for. Easy to prep, mix and apply. My advice is to use disposable tools when applying because it is very hard to clean (which means it's quality)

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by EricG Good for more than ponds
I have yet to line a pond, but this is the second time I've used Pond Shield. The first time was to protect a home made swimming pool accessory and it held up well to the brutal New Mexico sun as well as pool chemicals.
This time I'm using Pond Shield in an even harsher environment- my shop! I do both woodworking and metal working, so my shelves and benches are subject to red hot metal fragments as well as various oils and cutting coolants.
I had used acrylic floor paint, but that was just not tough enough. The two part epoxy used in Pond Shield is far superior. It wipes clean with no stain left behind. The most unfriendly places under the lathes are protected by a sheet of aluminum flashing, but even that may not really be necessary.
Follow the instructions if you have never used epoxy before. After mixing, use it quickly as it sets up fast in the pot, because of the heat produced by the chemical reaction of the two parts. After mixing, I put it in a shallow plastic paint tray and that gives me more working time. The epoxy does not stick to the plastic paint tray and can be peeled off.

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.

Very expensive for small amount of coverage. Directions are more complicated than necessary. Pond Shield & Home Depot should warn how little space will be covered.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Pmikejunot Great waterproofing.
I've used (and reviewed) Pond Shield before in other colors for other projects. This time I needed to waterproof my galvanized metal pan for my air handler for my AC. I didn't want the hassle of replacing the pan if I could clean up the corrosion and waterproof it. The gray Pond Shield did the trick. The pan looks better than it did new (come on, its galvanized), and it waterproofs perfectly. I used half the kit to minimize my waste, so it was worth the money not to have to change out the pan. I plan on using the rest of the gray on my Hot Water Heater galvanized pan...it's not leaking but I figure I won't have to deal with it later.
These are the types of projects I use Pond Shield for, although I have used it on my small custom built pond. I try to limit my use of Pond Shield to small repairs because of it's cost as opposed to something as large as a small pool. The cost of Pond Shield can become prohibitive quickly when considering large projects. And coverage isn't the best either, contributing to its expense. But this stuff works well as a waterproofing and it's durable. So until something as good and cheaper comes along, Pond Shield is my #1 waterproofing coating.

Used this to reseal my RV roof with at least one pronounced leak; easy to mix, apply; stopped at least the one leak I know of.
