We’re in the season that we’ve all been eagerly waiting for and as much as we have loved the cozy weather and the unusual snowfall, nothing brings us more joy than being able to spend quality time outdoors this Spring.
As the sun starts warming up, you might notice spaces in your home that need some tender loving. Our team recently did a pond repair renovation for a customer and we couldn’t be more excited for them as they get to enjoy endless days of reading books and sipping tea next to their new garden pond.
Here’s a Step-By-Step guide to this simple pond repair and renovation:
- We firstly stripped the old paint in the pond. You might be asking: “Why can’t I just paint over the old paint?” Removing the old paint gives you a fresh start and a more even look for the new coat of paint.
- We then cleaned the pond from the dirt that had accumulated, The dirt included sand from the garden or leaves from the trees. If you have algae in your pond, try not to remove all of it as it will be helpful for growing your ecosystem again.
- In a bucket of 10 or 20 liters, mix HydroSeal Pond seal, water, and bonding liquid – This mixture will be helpful for waterproofing the pond so that there are no leaks for the water to get through.
- Using the mixture, we then painted the pond thoroughly with a first and second coat. The first coat is crucial to make sure that all the holes are filled in order for the pond to be leveled. The second is done to ensure the solidity of the waterproofing.
- Once we finished painting, we let it dry for over 3 days.
- Before we filled the pond with water, we also conducted a repair on the pump. There was a broken impeller which we replaced, we then installed a new male adapter and front cover on the pump.
- Lastly, we finally filled the pond up with water.
