    Discover the Ultimate Solution for Dam and Pond Leaks

    Experience swift and highly effective leak sealing for clay and earth-based dams and ponds with Dam Stop Leak®. This remarkable product can be applied without the hassle of draining your water. Just sprinkle Dam Stop Leak® over the water surface, and it takes care of the rest. For optimal results, apply it directly to the water above the leaking area.

    How Does It Work?

    This granular polymer product infiltrates cracks and crevices in your dam, expanding to effectively block leaks1. No need to pinpoint the exact location of the leak; Dam Stop Leak® is versatile. Plus, it eliminates the need for draining, repairing cracks, and refilling. It’s most effective for earth or clay-based dams with a history of water retention2.

    Safety and Environmental Benefits

    Dam Stop Leak® is non-toxic, biodegradable, and eco-friendly. Applied to your water’s surface, it creates a long-lasting seal to prevent water loss. Unlike other brands, our product contains no potassium, making it the safest choice on the market.

    Why Choose Dam Stop Leak®?

    • Non-toxic and Environmentally Friendly: The safest polymer sealant available1
    • No need to empty your precious water
    • Works on full or partially full dams
    • Quick and immediate results
    • Cost-effective, no need for excavation or expensive equipment
    • Can target known leak areas or be generally applied
    • Easy application
    • Long-lasting, becoming part of the dam structure
    • Best results with pre-existing dams that have successfully held water

    Important Note:

    While Dam Stop Leak products are designed to address leakage issues, they are not a substitute for major construction problems, unsuitable soil types, extensive flaws, leaks, substantial imperfections, dams that have never retained water, or situations requiring a liner. Effectiveness may vary based on specific circumstances, and results cannot be guaranteed. It is effective for mitigating base leaks in concrete, tin, or lined tanks and dams but not specifically designed for this purpose. Aggressive leaks may require additional treatments.

    For newly constructed dams, consult your dam construction contractor as the primary contact. Dam Stop Leak® can assist in sealing minor leaks but is not a replacement for poor construction practices or significant construction defects. Always seek your dam construction contractor’s recommendation for your specific situation.

  • How to Use Dam Stop Leak®: Application Rates and Guidelines

    Where to Use, How Much to Use, How to Apply, and When to Apply

    For Irrigation and Stock Watering, Dams, and Ponds:

    • Where to Use: Dams, Ponds
    • How Much to Use: Apply 80g per m² of water surface area.
    • How to Apply: Spread evenly over the water’s surface using an appropriate applicator or by hand.
    • When to Apply: Choose either a targeted application or treat the entire water surface, as needed.

    Treating the entire water body: Calculate the surface area of your water body (Length (m) X Width (m) = m2)
    1kg: Covers 12.5m²
    2kg: Covers 25m²
    10kg: Covers 125m²
    15kg: Covers 188m²
    19kg: Covers 238m²

    Targeted Application: When the location of the leak is known, it is important to note that this may not be the location of where the water is being drawn from. In this instance, Dam Stop Leak® should be applied 10m either side of leak location, and out to the deepest point of the waterbody.

    For Optimal Results:

    1. Ensure that water is present in the water body, covering the area you intend to treat.
    2. Apply when wind conditions are mild to prevent product dispersion.
    3. Prior to application, clear the area of excessive aquatic vegetation and algae.

    Experience the most effective results with Dam Stop Leak® by following these application guidelines for your irrigation and stock watering needs, as well as dams and ponds.

  • Targets:

    • Leaking Dams
  • Should I Turn Off My Pump During Application?

    It’s recommended to turn off pumps or filters for at least 24 hours after application. Once the polymer settles at the bottom of your pond or dam, it will begin to seep into the pond walls. Make sure to check for any remaining material before reactivating the pumps.

    Is Dam Stop Leak® Safe Around Fish?

    Yes, Dam Stop Leak® is entirely safe for fish. It’s a non-toxic product. Keep a watchful eye on your fish until the product sinks to the bottom, as fish, especially koi, might mistake it for food when it’s on the water’s surface.

    Can I Use Dam Stop Leak in Lined Ponds/Dams?

    While Dam Stop Leak® is designed for use in clay or earth-based dams and water bodies, it can sometimes be effective in lined ponds or dams, but these cases are infrequent. In most situations, Dam Stop Leak® may not be the ideal solution for lined ponds or dams.

    Will Dam Stop Leak™ Address Tree Root Damage to Walls and Rabbit Holes?

    In clay or earth-based dams, Dam Stop Leak® is excellent for plugging dam walls with tree root damage and is effective with rabbit holes, though extra support may be needed for large rabbit holes, such as placing rubble or rocks before applying the product. For such cases, consider using Dam Stop Leak® Professional.

    How Long Does It Take to Work?

    On average, you should observe a reduction in water loss within seven days of application. If you don’t notice a significant change in water loss, additional treatment may be necessary.

    How Safe Is Dam Stop Leak®?

    Dam Stop Leak® is both non-toxic and environmentally friendly. Unlike other brands, our product contains no potassium, making it the safest solution available on the market.

Did not do the job

got advise from service team this would work after showing the dam leak and other areas around the leak, (which took heaps of my time). Use the produce exactly how advised and it had no impact on the issue. Purchase 3 large buckets cost me $1K and over. Requested refund or advise received nothing. NOT Happy

The powder has gone all gooy and sitting on top of the water. Is this normal?
