    Waterfall Leak/sealant

    I have a waterfall which is surrounded by rocks and it has a small leak. So far I have not managed to find the cause of the leak. Is there a brute-force solution? Is there a spray that I can line the waterfall with which will seal any leaks?

    Thanks

    Stu

    Is this a pool spa or pond?

    If the location of the leak is not somewhere where you care about looks then this is great:

    Pond Armour. Its an epoxy -- really ugly but it seals.

    Waterfalls and rocks often leak because the mortar tends to shrink. if you can go over the joints with some more mortar especially a fortified mortar then that may solve the problem

    Thx gwegan,

    Is there a spray that I can use? I am not sure I will be able to get the paint in the corners.
