Bentonite clay swells up to eighteen
times its dry size when it becomes wet. Expanded bentonite forms an
impermeable gel seal which makes an excellent pond sealant.
Bentonite is environmentally safe and does not affect the water,
livestock, or wildlife. When properly applied, it will not harm
When sealing a leaking pond to
prevent water loss through seepage, bentonite can be applied
directly to the soil in the pond bottom or it can be sprinkled on
the surface of the water and allowed to settle to the bottom. There
is never a guarantee with bentonite or bentomat that the pond will
not form a leak. The only 100% guarantee that a pond will
successfully hold water is with a man made pond liner such as
ESS-13 stands for 'Environmental
Soil Sealant'. It reduces the hydraulic conductivity of soils
beyond their natural capability by filling voids in the soil and by
chemically and electrically modifying the alignment of the clay
platelets in the soil.
Surfactants - specially designed to reduce the electrical
charges on clay platelets. This reduction of electrical charge
minimizes the natural electrical repulsion of the clay particles at
the molecular level.
Emulsified vegetable oil - micron sized droplets fill
voids and 'lubricate' the clay platelets allowing for more
