Water$ave Plug and Seep


Recent rain? Now is the best time to treat your dam or pond.

Our Water$ave Plug Range is the world's best polymer based earthen dam or water catchment sealant.

Whether the leak is in the base, wall, through rock or any soil type Polymer Innovations has the specific Water$ave Plug dam sealant to put an end to your water losses.

The best time to treat your leaking dam with Water$ave Plug is when there is water in the dam, especially after recent rain. While there is water about & your dam is filling, stop those dam leaks before it costs you more money by putting your crops, stock & livelihood at risk.

There are other ways of sealing your dam using such products as bentonite clay, lime or with a lining. Most of these solutions have to be implemented when the dam is built.

Even then due to time or money restrictions these dams are not built as well as they should be where such things as soil conditions, council specifications & seasonal changes are not considered.

When applied at the correct application rate most cases require only one application to permanently seal your dam or pond.

Water$ave Plug & Water$ave Seep is available in 10kg, 15kg or 19kg pails at the Online Store

Easy to apply!


  • Just sprinkle over the surface of the water. On a quiet day with no wind or rain.
  • Apply at 100gm/m2 for a fast leak or 75gm/m2 for a slow leak. A fast leak is a noticeable reduction over days & weeks. A slow leak is a noticeable reduction over months.
  • Remove any livestock & dense reeds. They impede the polymers ability to get to the outflows.
  • Allow 12 - 48hrs. To hydrate, expand & sink towards the outflows.
  • Then allow 2 - 10 days. Depending on the rate of leak for the polymers to start incorporating into the soil structures.


How does it work?


  • Water$ave Plug Range is a blend of lineal & cross linked polymers that are 99% insoluble, non toxic & biodegradable. It will not harm any plants or animals like fish, yabbies, your pets or livestock.
  • This polymer is known as a Polyacrylamide. It’s charge density & molecular weight can be controlled by the ratio of Acrylamide & Potassium Acrylate.
  • This allows us to customise its charge depending on the soil to be bonded. This is known as flocculation, where soil solids are bonded into 'flocs'.
  • The hydrating polymers expand & create a 'net' that carry the polymers & solids toward the leaks. This creates a 'plug' & will continue to expand filling holes, cracks & crevices to become part of the soil structures.
  • Water$ave Plug & Seep locates the leak & seals it! Even if you don't know exactly where the leak is our polymers will locate the outflows.


Water$ave Plug Range is the easiest, most cost effective polymer based dam sealing product on the market, get it NOW.
