1. Remove any old, failed sealant with a scraper, if possible. If it can’t be removed, treat the area like a gap and reinforce with geofabric as below.
2. Wash down to remove all dirt, dust and grime. A pressure washer is ideal for this. Allow to dry. The surface must have less then 10% moisture before proceeding.
3. Prepare Geofabric to reinforce along joins, around penetrations and over old sealant. It is much easier to pre-cut geofabric to size before starting to coat the membrane.
4. Brush the first coat of VersEseal Rapid Build liquid rubber over areas that need repair or additional reinforcement. Aim for a good thick coating of at least 1mm. Remember, you’re waterproofing, not painting – thick is good!
5. Lay geofabric bandage into the wet coating over joins and around penetrations. Ensure it is smooth with no creases or air pockets. You may need to cut a nick to allow the bandage to neatly conform to any corners or bends. If the fabric overlaps, paint some VersEseal Rapid Build liquid rubber between the layers to glue it together.
6. Immediately brush a second coat of VersEseal Rapid Build liquid rubber aiming again for another good thick coating of at least 1mm to give a wet on wet sandwich with a total wet coating thickness of 2mm.
7. Allow the repaired area to dry. This will typically take about 24 hours at 25℃ with good ventilation.
8. The final sealing step will depend on the condition of your pond.
9. If conditions are not optimal a longer drying time will be required – actual times will vary depending on season and location. If you are unsure or would like further guidance on this please give us a call.
In pond applications, VersEseal Rapid Build should be applied at a minimum total wet coating of 2kg/m2. Ensure this correct coating thickness is achieved to provide longevity.
Do not use this water based VOC Free coating system if rain or heavy dew are expected within 24hours. Apply at temperatures between 10℃ and 30℃. Avoid applying during the hottest part of the day.
For Cleaning up, use mineral turpentine to clean VersEseal Rapid Build from hard surfaces, use Baby Oil (Mineral oil) to clean from skin.

In fact, VersEseal Pond paint is potable water approved to AS4020, which means it is safe for use in drinking water reservoirs. This indicates that the product meets strict standards for water quality and is deemed safe for consumption.
VersEseal Pond paint is also suitable for hydroponics and aquaponics systems. Hydroponics is a method of growing plants without soil, while aquaponics combines hydroponics with aquaculture, creating a symbiotic environment for both plants and fish. The fact that VersEseal Pond paint is safe for use in these systems further reinforces its fish-friendliness.
VersEseal waterproofing membrane can be applied to a variety of surfaces when sealing ponds. Its excellent adhesion properties make it suitable for different materials commonly used in pond construction. Here are some of the surfaces where VersEseal can be effectively applied:
Concrete: VersEseal adheres exceptionally well to concrete surfaces, including poured concrete, precast concrete, and concrete blocks. It forms a strong bond, providing a durable and watertight seal for concrete ponds. For freshly poured concrete, please allow 28 days for outgassing prior to coating.
Fiberglass: VersEseal bonds effectively to fiberglass surfaces, ensuring a tight and reliable seal that protects against leaks. When applying to fibreglass, the surface should be scuffed slightly to provide additional adhesion strength.
Timber: VersEseal can be used to seal ponds made from timber or those with a timber framework. It adheres to the wood surface, creating a protective barrier against water penetration and preventing rotting or warping.
Rubber: Rubber liners are commonly used in pond construction, and VersEseal is compatible with such surfaces. It forms a strong bond with rubber, offering an effective seal that keeps water contained within the pond.
Geotextile lining: Geotextile liners are used to provide additional protection and reinforcement in ponds. VersEseal can be applied to geotextile linings, ensuring a secure seal and enhancing the overall waterproofing properties of the pond.
It’s important to note that VersEseal’s compatibility with these surfaces may vary depending on their condition and preparation. Proper surface preparation, including having a clean and dry substrate, is crucial for achieving optimal adhesion and sealing performance.
Yes, it is possible to coat over an existing black plastic or PVC liner using VersEseal. By doing so, you can provide additional protection and enhance the longevity of the liner. We recommend covering the entire surface of the liner to ensure full protection and a uniform application.
It’s important to consider the thickness of the existing plastic liner when applying VersEseal. Thicker liners may require adjustments in the application process to ensure proper adhesion and a seamless coating. Please give us a call on 1300 891 576 for specific guidelines and advice based on the thickness of your liner

VersEseal should be applied to reach the required thickness rather than for a number of coats. For ponds, a minimum of two coats is required to give a final Wet Film Thickness of 1mm at a minimum. This equates to 1kg per square meter. A thicker coating may be required depending on the substrate. Please contact us for specific advice for your project.
Do not use silicone or any other new gap filler or sealant to fill gaps prior to using VersEseal. These products can contain slow release solvents which can affect the VersEseal membrane. Any gaps should be filled with VersEseal Rubber Caulk and bridged over using the Geo Fabric method.
If you have old silicone or polyurethane sealants on your pond which are lifting and peeling, they will need to be removed to ensure you have a solid substrate to coat over. If small amounts of the sealant cannot be removed, treat it as if it’s a gap and bridge across it with Geo Fabric as shown in our application videos.
