Today I got around to cementing and putting on the first layer of Drylok!

First Lay of Cement

Second Layer of Cement was added once the first layer had dried for a few hours. The layers are rather thin (by design), and appeared dry within about 30 minutes to an hour and after 3 felt hard rather than chalky so I felt confident adding on the second layer. After letting that dry a further few hours I added Drylok with some charcoal cement pigment.

I'm going for a smooth bedrock/large Boulder look and I'm loving how it's coming out!! Gotta wait for this to dry a bit before I can coat again. After ample cure time then it will be time for install!!

After much consideration, I did away with the original flow manifold. I re-did the pumps to pull through PVC Piping

and hid them behind a new background.
