New Pond #1
Hi All,
I hope someone can other some advise please.
I had a new pond built towards the end of last year, it is constructed of blocks and render to the sides with a concrete base. I was eager to use the expensive pond paint and attempted to paint the walls and base but the weather wasn't in my favor and the paint wouldn't take, anyway I decided to wait until the weather improved, I have now painted the sides which have dried a treat however the concrete base is another story, the pond paint will not set and just starts flaking away with what looks like air bubbles with water. I don't know whether I should have used a concrete sealer first before applying the pond paint?
Any advise would be gratefully received.
