Applying the P1 Sealant to the Pond Walls ...

P1 is a product that was introduced by F. W. Filtration and The East Riding Koi Co were one of the very first companies in the United Kingdom to try this product ..  Unlike other pond sealants P1 is water based and comes as a two pack product which is extremely easy to mix ... once mixed it can be applied by Brush or Roller to the walls of the pond and it can be applied to even damp surfaces - again unlike most of the other products available - after just half an hour the curing process will have started and even if it rains it will not destroy or ruin the work already completed ... and one of the most amazing features of P1 apart, of course, of providing you with a super smooth waterproof coating to the pond walls, is the fact that you only need to use two coats of P1 (again unlike some other products where colour finish is required and you need to apply four coats) to give you the finish you desire, but if you wish you can continue to apply the second coat on the following day .... try that with another well known product ...

We are negotiating at this very moment to take on the Sole Distribution of this and other products from the manufacturers keeping the name of The East Riding Koi Co at the forefront of the Aquatic World....

The photographs that follow show how this product is being applied to this pond in the Cayman Islands and it was a hands on experience for myself and one of our customers own workers ... who learnt very fast how to apply and mix this superb product ....

The Finish achieved was superb in every way and although this is the first time I have used P1 myself personally, I found it extremely easy to apply - and have no hesitation in recommending its use ... judge for yourselves ...

OK - now lets move on to the Heart and Lungs of any pond installation .. the Filtration System....
