Hello all:

Sorry been a while - as promised I've been dedicated to increasing my knowledge of the products working closely with manufacturer, applying the product on test projects, and working with the Pond Boss himself in order to arrive at this point. What point is that? Here's an update:

I have a attained a working knowledge of the product through a few successful application experiments in addition to working with the polymer manufacturer to a point I feel comfortable addressing questions and providing some direction for those who need help.

I have successfully negotiated a Pond Boss member discount for orders I place to the company in return for serving as a primary contact point to educate and direct any inquiries. However, anyone is free to seek information from me and order directly from the company - my help is not conditional in any manner. I am here to try and provide direction, education from my experiences as a pond owner and fisheries management professional, and hopefully a solution for pond seepage issues.

As this product serves as direct competition for a Pond Boss resource guide advertiser, out of respect for Bob and Mike and their paid advertisers, I needed to ensure I was complying with appropriate rules of engagement prior to promoting the product. I will now be listed in the Pond Boss resource guide as an advertiser, so that challenge has been addressed and resolved. I appreciate your collective patience - I wanted to ensure I did this the right way, regardless of the outcome or length of process.

I welcome a PM anytime if you need information or advice - I am here to help and look forward to working with you.

TJ

So, does it work? What kind of leak did you have? Did you have to dredge a bit first to get the muck out before application? Is there a Pond Boss discount?

teehjaeh57, thanks for the phone call again. I think I do have most/almost all of my leakage at the dam side. The rains we've had lately have exposed this. I think I'm ready to give this stuff a try even though I am a partial groundwater pond.


I just got a new pond, I made it twice because I aint so bright.

I am also thinking about trying the product but money is a little tight right now and would like to see if any others have good results before jumping in.

TJ and I had a great visit the other day on this. Like you said Jason money is tight right now for me also but this is something I am excited to try. My leak may be more than it can handle but it does sound promising. We have had a wet start to the summer here in Missouri and more to come this week by the bucket loads. I think it would be a good year for me to try.

Again thanks for the visit and the time TJ
David


Thanks

Great meeting you, Tim - and you're welcome! Happy I learned more about your pond and hope I can help down the road.

With TJ's assistance I think I'm gonna give this a try in about a month or so. Any advice from pond owners who have tried similar treatments? Or am I gonna be one of the first guinea pigs? smile

I just put 10 units in my 1 acre pond about 2 weeks ago with TJ's advice and assistance in obtaining the product. My pond was losing over 5" per week in the cooler part of spring. My current rate of loss is only about 2.3" per week during a much hotter time period. That is about equal to the National Weather Services evaporation loss observations for my area in July, so I am very happy with the early results.

For the application I flagged off 10 equal sections of my pond then used an inflatable raft with a trolling motor. I would throw in a scoop of part A and my son would throw part B on top of it until we had an entire unit in each section. Be sure to do it when there is no wind. It is a real mess in the boat when it gets wet. Also it stays suspended for some time and will easily blow to the end of your pond which will mess up your coverage.

I'll continue to monitor my results and give updates. Good luck with your project!

Hey Mark that is awesome news and valuable information for us all. Let's keep tracking results - but glad it appears like a successful project.

Josh and Mike Otto are working a couple leak issues in TX and I'll be sure to have them report their experiences ASAP if we go with Soilfloc.

So far, so good!

Mark just completed a big project in up near Omaha. Call me for details, worked out pretty slick with his application modifications.

That is encouraging I will keep monitoring all this. It has been very wet year around here. I still hope to give this a go in the near future.

TJ I'm hoping to give you a call in a bit. I've taken new measurements and want to treat my targeted areas only. I want your opinion and thoughts on it. Then I think I'll order the product.

No problem, we can figure out the best plan of attack.

Just spoke with Mark on some stocking strategies and he mentioned the pond is holding tight! Awesome news for sure.

I ordered some a few weeks ago and now am getting ready to apply. After opening the 2 pails they both look exactly the same. I am trying to seal a very small .07 acre pond which leaks out the bottom. Was just wondering if part a and part b look a like. Thanks

Okay my mistake. After a closer examination of the 2 by using a teaspoon placing the 2 side by side I can see a difference especially in the color of the 2. One is a much brighter white that the other one and there is a real small difference. Sorry about jumping the gun. I guess my eyes are not as good as they once where.

Per my posts, I'm happy to help anyone with free consultation on any project or just to help troubleshoot and outline options - feel free to PM me. I've worked with a couple dozen of the Pond Boss family and have several successful projects under our belts. If Soilfloc is a sound solution, I can provide a PB discount when ordering through me. Regardless of whatever you do, I'm still here to help the forum community anytime - feel free to reach out!

TJ,

This conversation has me curious. Ha anyone tried applying the product to a water table pond during full pool? I am wondering whether it would seal and help stabilze the pool level.

My thought would be yes but that goes both ways, no water out, no water in. Unless you have surface water to make up for the loss of evap and minimal seepage you will end up with a mud pool at some point. I could be way off on my thinking but I would assume being a water table pond it would be bad.
