How To Apply Water$ave Plug & Seep

    • If your dam has water in it & is currently leaking then now would be the best time to apply. The pressure of the water leakage creates the suction needed to draw the hydrating polymers into the problem areas & seal the leaks.
    • If you do not have any water in your dam yet. You can apply Water$ave Plug/Seep as your dam is filling up after rain, this ensures a neat & even coverage.
    • If you know where the leak is then you can concentrate your application to that area. It is also recommended that the rest of the dam be treated as well & this can be done when the dam is full or is at least above the problem area.
    • Do not under apply. Apply product at no less than the recommended rates.
    • For a fast leak. Apply at 100gm/m2. A fast leak is a noticeable reduction over days & weeks.

    • For a slow leak. Apply at 75gm/m2. A slow leak is a noticeable reduction over months.
    • You can work out how much product you need. By using our online Water$ave Plug & Seep Polymer Calculator.
    • Remove any deep silt, livestock & dense reeds. They can impede the polymers ability to get to the outflows.
    • Just sprinkle over the surface of the water. On a quiet day with no wind or rain & when the dam is not overflowing.
    • Distribute it as if you are 'feeding the chickens'. At the recommended rates.
    • Cast out gently no more than 1.5m. By hand, scoop or fertiliser spreader from a small dinghy for best results.
    • Be careful not to separate the blend. Or go through the polymer while applying to the water surface.
    • A boat is recommended. To make sure that the application is spread evenly all over the dam without separating the blend.
    • Allow 12 - 48 hrs. 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.
    • For more information. Please visit our Water$ave Plug & Seep FAQ page.

Our dam had been leaking badly for the past 2-3 months since it got full. I applied your Water$ave Seep at the recommended rate & within 2 days the leak had stopped & a week later the ground had almost dried out. We are really impressed...
