Seaming and Patching
Pondgard Rubber Pond Liners

Patching Small Holes or Tears

Use the 6" single sided tape. Thoroughly clean the liner area using QuickPrime and an abrasive pad. Wipe clean with a paper towel. Remove the paper backing and apply the tape being careful to provide a smooth cover. Roll to provide pressure to all areas of the tape. Apply Lap Sealant to the tape edges for the final step and allow to dry for several hours before contact with water.
How to find a leak in your pond


Joining Two Liners

Thoroughly clean the liner splice areas with QuickPrime and an abrasive pad. Wipe clean with a paper towel. Apply the 3" double sided tape to the top edge of one liner and lay the bottom edge of the second liner directly on top. Apply the 6" single sided tape over the exposed edge of the splice with three inches on each side. Roll to provide pressure to all areas of the tape. Apply lap sealant to both edges of the 6" tape for the final step and allow to dry for several hours before contact with water.

IMPORTANT: For a proper tape adhesion, the liner must be clean and dry. Also firm pressure is required.

Tips:

  • If you don't have a roller, you can use a section of 1-1/2" or 2" PVC pipe to apply pressure.
  • If necessary Naptha can be used in place of the QuickPrime. Although both Firestone and The Water Garden recommend the QuickPrime.
