Part # 88-265-1005
AquaMend is a hand-mixable, specialty epoxy putty for repairs to damp,
wet areas and underwater surfaces. After mixing, it forms a polymer
compound that may be applied underwater (either fresh or salt water) and
will bond tenaciously to substrates such as fiberglass, concrete, ceramic,
glass, metal, wood, and many plastics. Each stick contains pre-measured
portions of base and activator throughout — no measuring or mixing tools
are necessary. The consistency (like modeling clay) eliminates drips and
runs, facilitates adhesion to the substrate, and allows the material to be
shaped and formed as needed before curing begins. After 60 minutes
the application can be drilled, sawed, sanded, carved, and painted.
AquaMend cures to an off-white color. Suitable for interior or exterior use,
it is resistant to chemicals, water, and temperature extremes. AquaMend
contains no solvents or VOCs. It is non-flammable and releases no noxious
fumes. It won't shrink or pull away. The unused portion stays fresh for
future use when saved in its original package.

I have a 1" hole in the concrete in the deep end about 8ft down. Loosing water. Pool is now drained and getting ready to paint with Olympic zeron epoxy paint. Will this fix the hole in the concrete and can I paint it with the zeron epoxy paint? Thanks

I have ground water leaking into an ejector pit, located in my basement. The pit is for the collection of waste water and is constructed of a durable plastic derivative. I am not attempting to keep water from leaking out of the pit but, rather, attempting to keep water from leaking into the pit. Will this epoxy provide a barrier against the pressure of ground water which is leaking into a subterranean plastic molded sewage ejection pit?
That epoxy would probably be a good temporary fix but it will not be able to hold for long, the pressure will get to it.
