    Hi Folks,

    We have an indoor pond that doesn't house fish but it has been leaking for years through the tile. As a last ditch effort I bought a gallon of clear flex seal and coated the heck out of the walls and I'm happy to say it stopped the leaks! I did read the instructions and they claim after it dries its safe for fish.

    I also have used it as a sealant around one of my waterfalls on one of our outside ponds and at the tarp connection for years and no issues with leaks or with fish. I used the spray bottle version for that one. Just thought I would pass it along :)

    You can see a bit of a shine on the tile walls but overall very little to notice! The train is just a bonus :D

    Hi tex, it is good stuff. Here is my thread about it last Nov. Still working great! Flex Seal is amazing. I highly recommend it. I have used the tape to join EPDM, out of the water. And the seal glue to seal a leak around the hose/filter connection. Both places are holding great for almost 6 mo.

    Looking at your other thread I think the UV risk could be real and I've got another concrete pond outside but for that I'm using Pond Pro 2000. Put down one coat and putting the final coat on this weekend.

    The only advice I would give out is no matter what epoxy product you use it is not worth the time or money to try and save the brush :)
