Swimming Pool Epoxy Repair Putty: Your Ultimate Solution for Simple Pool Repairs

When it comes to maintaining your swimming pool, ensuring it remains watertight and free from leaks and cracks is paramount. One remarkable product that has revolutionized pool repairs is EPOXYBOND® POOL PUTTY. In this article, we will explore what swimming pool epoxy repair putty is and how it can be effectively used to keep your pool in pristine condition.


EPOXYBOND® POOL PUTTY is a unique two-part epoxy putty specially formulated for repairing concrete or Gunite pools. Its innovative cartridge form simplifies the repair process with a straightforward equal mixing ratio of 1 to 1. This means you just need to cut, mix, and fix, making it a hassle-free solution for pool owners.

One of the standout features of EPOXYBOND® POOL PUTTY is that it does not require you to drain your pool for repairs. It hardens under water, which is a game-changer in the world of pool maintenance. Once cured, it maintains its integrity, ensuring it does not shrink or sag over time.

Packaging and Coverage

EPOXYBOND® POOL PUTTY comes in two variants: black and white, each catering to different pool aesthetics and preferences. These variants are conveniently packaged in sets:

In terms of coverage, one 14 oz. set of EPOXYBOND® POOL PUTTY can effectively cover approximately 11.7 cubic inches or 0.0067 cubic feet of repair area.

Mixing and Application

EPOXYBOND® POOL PUTTY offers versatility in terms of application, whether your repairs are underwater or above water.

Under Water Repairs:

  • Ensure that the area to be repaired is free of loose particles, slime, and algae.
  • Mix equal amounts of resin and hardener thoroughly above water until the putty achieves a uniform color.
  • For optimal adhesion, press the putty firmly into the areas requiring repair.

Above Water Repairs:

  • Thoroughly clean the area to be repaired, removing any grease, loose particles, and rust. For better adhesion, roughen the surface with a wire brush or sandpaper.
  • Mix equal amounts of resin and hardener until the putty attains a uniform color.
  • For above-water repairs, the putty can be contoured or smoothed by carefully rubbing it with a wet sponge.

It’s crucial to apply EPOXYBOND® POOL PUTTY at least 1/8″ thick. After application, avoid disturbing it until it has completely cured.

Setting Time

The setting time of EPOXYBOND® POOL PUTTY depends on temperature conditions. Here is an approximate setting time guide:

  • 60°F (16°C): 3-1/2 hours
  • 70°F (21°C): 2 hours
  • 80°F (27°C): 80 minutes
  • 90°F (32°C): 55-60 minutes
  • 100°F (38°C): 40-45 minutes
  • 120°F (49°C): 20-25 minutes

It’s important to note that setting time refers to the duration required for the putty to become usable, while curing time is the duration needed to reach all its chemical and physical properties.

Clean-Up and Disposal

To clean equipment, use soap and warm water before the materials begin to harden. After hardening, Methyl Ethyl Ketone (MEK) or alcohol may be necessary for cleaning. Dispose of any residues and wastes following the guidelines provided in the Safety Data Sheets and government regulations.

Storage and Shelf Life

Store all materials in a cool, dry environment, away from direct sunlight. The ideal storage temperature is 75°F (24°C), and protection from freezing is essential. In unopened original containers, the materials referred to in this Data Sheet have a shelf life of approximately one year.
