That product is for roofs that have been in place for a few years and the sun and or some minor leaks have surfaced. it is a small hole filler and to stop further uv deterioration. As far as I know that is not for seaming . but good luck. if you were painting a concrete wall it's possible that could do the trick for yea.

I found the web site for your product and here is one of there comments
Not trying to insult you in any way theres only one chance to get it right the first time and when you have fish it's all planted and a leak START IT IS THE WORST . I saw you had what looked to be seam tape and another gallon of ? PRIMER? Just trying to get you a bullet proof seam !!!!!!!

Started from scratch this morning. Laid a plastic table underneath to make a perfectly flat surface. Cleans with soap and water. Let dry. Put down edpm primer. Double sided tape. Then the single sided tape. Then used the liquid rubber over that. Then used gorilla glue waterproof tape which was way more tacky than the seam tape over it all with a few layers. Then every 2 hours I did more coats of liquid rubber for 4 total. I have way more faith in this seam then I did last week. All products are made for pond waterproofing and are water based. Letting cute over night and will hit with one more coat of liquid rubber in the morning then I will shape back in and start filling.

Ok tomorrow’s the day. I cleaned it to a surgical level. Spread plenty of primer. Plenty of layers of tape. And just put on my 4th coat of liquid rubber. Tomorrow I’m going to fill it up a few feet and mark it with a white marker and let it sit over night. If no leak I will fill it up a few more feet and so on and so on. Wish me luck.

Filled it probably a 1/4 of the way and made a mark with a white chalk marker = 3 hours and still at the same level. Fingers crossed. Will check in the AM to see where it’s at

I should have been so cautious i have a small leak that has recently appeared. i'm not overly surprised as this was my first pond build as well. and i definitely didn't stick with the kiss theory of keeping it simple. i have five seams at least that i can remember. 3 bogs 2 ponds 4 elevation changes and i had to build up the entire back half of the project 7 feet. you'll get it mastered and before you know it you'll be looking at a bigger bog or waterfall

That sucks, at least you isolated it to an area, though. Good luck hopefully it’s not too much of a pita.

24 hours and water level stayed the same! Started raining so in the am I will start placing some big rocks with the big boots on and fill another foot or 2 and let sit another 24 hours.

Are you placing fabric under the boulders?
