Just wondering if any of you pondtite fans/users could tell me roughly how many litres of pondtite i'd need to seal the internal walls of a 4x2x2? probably 2 coats minimum cheers

A 1 litre tub usually does 2 coats on a 2x2 wall for me
i didnt even use a litre over the background that i did , its about 1200 long and 500 high with 2 big ledges ,
i made a box , a box with doors
i did 4 coats over this , the trick is to keep the layers thin to stop it pooling and using more pondtite than is needed

Just to seal the internal walls or to cover rock wall over that area? I doubt you would use a litre if you're just sealing the inside walls.
And as Thomasssss said, I keep it thin and do at least 3 coats brushing in opposite directions each time.

according to the manufacturer website, Pondtite will take 1.3L to cover 2 square metres PER COAT. having done several large enclosures, i think they are being very overly conservative and maybe using the coloured product, which is substantially thicker
and from memory you should be laying down 3-4 coats for something that will be holding water, and the clear stuff is so economical and goes on so easy that i do 3 -4 coats anyway even just for sealing against 'splashing', just so i have 'room' to use a bit of sandpaper and knock off the shine.READING GIVES YOU KNOWLEDGE, ....

I also mix a few handfuls of sand and pea size stones in with mine to add texture so it tends to go on pretty thick.
