Over time wet pour surfaces can actually get damaged from the amount of use that a playground gets or from weather conditions. This means that a small repair may be required. In these instances a Wetpour Repair kit will be the perfect solution. These kits contain the perfect ratio of polyurethane resin binder and EPDM rubber granules for both wearing and base courses. They can be bought in a variety of colours which will help the repairs blend in with the existing surface.
Reviving Faded and Damaged Wetpour Surfaces: A Step-by-Step Guide
If your wetpour playground surface has shrunk around the edges or pulled away from the edging it can create a trip hazard and will need to be repaired as soon as possible. This can be done in a quick process with a band repair. This involves cutting the surfacing back to the existing edging and filling it in with new wetpour which is graded to match the original surfacing. This is then completed with a coloured flex which makes the area look new again.
Even though wet pour is low maintenance it still needs to be maintained and inspected regularly. This will allow any problems to be spotted and dealt with quickly before they become more serious and costly to repair. It’s also important to keep the surface clean and free of any debris or vegetation. This will prevent the growth of algae and moss which can make the wetpour slippery when it’s wet. Rock salt/grit should not be used on wetpour as this can damage the surface and reduce its porosity. If ice forms on the wetpour surface a chemical de-icer is recommended.
