Seal it Right: Tips for Applying Soilfloc Pond Sealant - Air-O-Lator - Pond Aeration & Maintenance Products

Maintaining the water levels in ponds and lakes can be challenging, especially when leaks go undetected or untreated. This not only leads to wasted water but also disrupts the ecosystem balance and can result in costly repairs. However, with the effective use of Soilfloc pond sealant from Air-O-Lator, these issues can be mitigated. Soilfloc’s advanced formula is designed to create a durable seal that prevents water from escaping, thus preserving water resources, supporting aquatic life, and ensuring the long-term health and beauty of your water feature.

What is pond sealant? 

Pond sealant is a crucial product for lakes and ponds, serving as a protective barrier to prevent water seepage and maintain optimal water levels in ponds. It’s designed to seal leaks, cracks, and porous areas, ensuring the structural integrity of the pond and preserving water quality. Air-O-Lator’s pond sealants are formulated with durable materials that are safe for aquatic life, providing a reliable solution for maintaining healthy and sustainable pond ecosystems.

How does it work? 

Our Soilfloc Pond Sealant not only offers superior protection against leaks but also contributes to the overall aesthetics and functionality of ponds. By creating a seamless barrier, these sealants help to retain water, reduce evaporation, and prevent soil erosion around the pond edges. This not only promotes a stable environment for aquatic plants and wildlife but also enhances the visual appeal of the pond, making it a focal point of natural beauty in any outdoor space. With a focus on durability, performance, and environmental compatibility, our Soilfloc Pond Sealants are an essential component for maintaining and enhancing ponds of all sizes.

Tips for a successful application 

Preparation:

  • Thoroughly clean the pond area, removing debris, algae, and any loose soil or sediment.
  • There is no need to drain the water before application. 

Timing and Weather Conditions:

  • Choose a time for application when there is minimal wind to prevent the sealant from drifting or spreading unevenly.
  • Avoid applying the sealant during heavy rain or extreme temperatures, as these conditions can affect its performance.

Application Equipment:

  • If you apply by boat, it is best to use a small watercraft that creates minimal disruption to the water surface. 
  • Once you have applied the product to a part of the pond, avoid traveling back through the treated area. 

Mixing Instructions:

  • Forcefully throw both Parts at the water to ensure they mix with each other.
  • Use the recommended ratio of sealant to water to achieve the desired consistency for application.

Application Technique:

  • Start applying the sealant from one end of the pond and work your way systematically to the other end.
  • There is a chance some product will float on the surface- it happens! This does not mean something is wrong with your product.

Post-Application Care:

  • Monitor the pond regularly after application to check for any signs of leaks or seepage, and reapply sealant if necessary.
  • Follow up with routine maintenance practices, such as water testing and debris removal, to ensure the long-term effectiveness of the sealant.

Safety Precautions:

  • Wear appropriate protective gear, such as gloves and goggles, during the application process to avoid skin contact or eye irritation.
  • Keep children and pets away from the treated area until the sealant has fully dried and cured.
