    Repairing cracks in outdoor concrete fishpond..

    Any suggestions re products to use ?

    Tried finding someone knowledgable at the local Mitre10 this morning and just ended walking away shaking my head...

    If possible I would like to do the crack repair without having to seal the entire pond 10 square m.

    Demi's has a concrete repair/grout mix. I've also seen options for epoxy based crack repair and flexible silicone type products..

    Bunnings have two pot epoxy plastercine type stuff that you mix in equal proportions and push into the cracks. Get the surface as clean as possible first .

    Don't bother with hardware stores. Go into your local tile shop. Ardex or Mapei are good brands. Both brands supply a peal and stick tape or a silicone that is safe on potable water.

    Mitre10 sell a product called Knead It. Works well for small cracks

    For our really old water tank we used a product made by Sika, you mix with water then apply before it sets. You can apply underwater but easier if tank/pond is drained.
    Knead it works well on large cracks, there are various types so make sure you get a suitable one.

    Ardex do a filler powder that you pour/sweep in, then use their epoxy mix gun to wet down. It's bloody awesome. Ask wozza on the CNIGC page, he's the local rep
