Koi Pond Leaks – Safely stop leaks in your fish pond

Pond Leak

Pond Leak?

Does your pond leak?  Many fish ponds are constructed of cement plaster over concrete blocks.  From thermal movement these ponds will sometimes develop hairline cracks which will then leak water out.  Many people will chip the crack out and do the usual hydraulic cement patch, and within a short period of time it cracks again.  The Chargar Corporation has developed a thick 100% epoxy coating that can bridge the crack, waterproof it and prevent further cracking from movement.  The Epoxy Waterproofer can be brushed applied over the crack forming a 15 mil impervious film. It has slight expansion and contraction ability. It comes in clear or colors.

Won’t Harm the Fish

Since Epoxy Waterproofer is 100% solids it becomes completely inert once it has fully cured.  This means that not only will it stop your pond leak but it will not leach any harmful chemicals and will not hurt the livestock.  It will not cause any algae issues by leaching nitrates or phosphates.  Customers  and municipalities have used this epoxy to seal ponds and water features for over 30 years with no ill effects.

Other Uses

Shower Grout Sealer –

shower grout sealer

The Best Shower Grout Sealer

Shower grout is just a mixture of sand, cement and water; so it is naturally porous and absorbent. Left unsealed, it can soak up dirt and mildew like a sponge and once it gets in… it can be time consuming to get out. You can seal the grout easily without breaking the bank.

Ultimate Stain Repellent is a shower grout sealer like no other.  It penetrates deep into the grout between tiles chemically reacting to a form a hydrophobic and oleo-phobic layer.  This chemical reaction blocks the further passage of moisture between tiles and keeps the shower recess watertight.  Not only does it block the passage of water, unlike other sealers, it also blocks oils from soaps and shampoos that can leave hard to clean stains.

Water Based Formula

This water based formula is safe for use in any shower, indoor or outdoors.  There is no strong odor when applying Ultimate Stain Repellent and there is no change to the appearance of the tile or grout.  This material penetrates deeply for long lasting protection and easy cleaning.

Leaking basement walls

waterproof sealer, leaking basement

Stop water leaks through my basement wall?

A leaking basement is a common problem that has a very simple solution.  Water can seep through foundation walls leaving minerals on the surface or even puddles on the floor.  Without proper ventilation mold and mildew will quickly take root.  Concrete or block walls may begin to soften or even crumble from prolonged water damage.  It can be used as a waterproofing underlayment for long term water protection. Stop the water for good with Epoxy Waterproofer!  For 40 years Epoxy Waterproofer has proven it’s ability to stop water and withstand tons of hydro-static pressure.

Stop Radon Gas:

Epoxy Waterproofer works by creating a 15 mil impervious film on the surface of the wall that tenaciously bonds with the strength of 100% epoxy.  An added result of completely stopping the transmission of water is that you also stop the transmission of vapor and gases, including radon gas.  Epoxy Waterproofer will seal your basement or garage and prevent the intrusion of radon gases.

It’s Safe and Easy to Apply

No solvents are added to this 100% epoxy, there is no obnoxious smells or toxic fumes.  Application is as easy as evenly mixing the part B into the part A and then applying with a brush or roller over the affected areas.  Add color packs if desired in order to tint the epoxy to easier blend away or hide repairs to your leaking basement.

Epoxy Waterproofer withstands hydro-static pressure and will not peel or flake off of the surface.

De-icing Salts Attacking Concrete Surfaces

sidewalk salt damage

Salt Damage to Concrete & Masonry is Expensive

De-Icings salts such as rock salt, calcium chloride, magnesium chloride, and other salt related products all do damage to concrete surfaces.  The resulting slurry of melted ice and salt is absorbed into the concrete causing spalling and general erosion of the surface. Salt Block WB does not allow the salty slurry created by the de-icing salt from soaking into the concrete and destroying your concrete surface.  A chemical reaction occurs within the pores of the concrete creating an invisible barrier which prevents absorption into the surface.  A treatment of Salt Block will save you hundreds of dollars in future concrete repairs.

What if the damage is already done?

Concrete that has pitted and spalled needs to be repaired using a concrete repair mortar such as Plas-Tex Powder.  All broken and loose concrete needs to be removed prior to patching to ensure the patch gets a strong, permanent bond.  Once all patching has been completed and allowed to cure the surface can now be sealed with Salt Block WB to protect and prevent future damage from de-icing salts.
