    UltraGuard is a "proprietary formula epoxy based polymer designed for use as a protective and decorative coating for aquatic environments. UltraGuard® is a two-component system: resin and hardener."

    The next question is how much does it cost?

    Thanks for all the information. My biggest concern is the cinder block wall shifting. Our "soil" is a mixture of very sandy clay, mostly sand. I plan on filling the cells with rebar and concrete, tied to the floor.

    Sean and I are moving in a new direction for our pond rebuild. Idealy should we put the walls in before the floor or the floor first?

    I don't think the mods here will appreciate posting prices, and rightly so.
    but I sent them to you so you don't have to search for them.

    there are other two-component systems much more cost effective which I have found. I don't see the difference?

    and I am considering this stuff, it is more along the lines of what you were saying to begin with

    The concrete block walls need a good foundation.

    I have seen it done both ways.

    You can't put the "walls" on a 3" - 4" concrete floor (shouldn't expect to put on 3" - 4" floor).

    so then we should pour at least a 6 inch reinforced with rebar footing for the wall?

    What ever size footing recommended for a same height block wall in your area.

    I might add that it might make a difference if the pond "walls" are below grade (dirt on one side, water on the other side) or above grade.
    If there was much height above grade, the footing might be more like a footing for a retaining wall.
    I don't know, I am not a masonry worker.
