Hey guys, I’m thinking about making a waterpond out of Azek. I really love the Frank Klausz inspired one I made out of wood, but I let it run out of water and now it is leaking and won’t stop.

Rather than build another one of wood, I though about using Azek.

I’ve heard PVC cement will work and I’ve heard it will NOT work.

I’ve come across Christie’s vinyl glue anyone use that?

Seems the Azek cement is not too available around me.

Looking for an alternative waterproof glue.

Be care with long length…the stuff expands quite a bit with heat…..I had to replace an Azek top cap with wood on a cement wall due to stretch issues

Have you tried to dry yours out and seal inside joints with 100% silicone sealant?

I trimmed my garage with Azak and have played with it elsewhere. It does move a lot with the temperature but on such a small project I would not worry. I have used PVC cement with it and it works, best on cut edges and factory smooth with a slight roughing with 120 grit – avoid faux textured faces for glueing. Again if you develop a leak seal (inside seams) with silicone.

I just finished two window boxes made with Versatec. They recommend Weldon 705 PVC cement. It gives you 5 min. working time. I used Versatic biscuits and the 705 (no other fasteners). Plenty of time to work and very strong and waterproof when done. Easier than I thought it would be. Hope this helps
