What is Wetpour Repair?


Wetpour Repair is the process of repairing small areas of damaged playground surfacing. This type of repair is done using a kit that contains the perfect ratio of polyurethane resin binder and EPDM rubber granules. This is a very simple process and can be carried out by the playground owner themselves, reducing the need for extra labor costs.

If you have a wet pour safety surface and it has suffered damage from vandalism or the weather then this should be repaired as soon as possible. This is because damage to the surface is likely to grow and if left it could become more dangerous for children to use.

It is also important to keep a wetpour playground clean from things like grass, weeds, leaves and moss, as these can cause problems. This is because if these are allowed to build up over time they can block the pores of the wetpour. This means that the surfacing is unable to drain properly which can be dangerous for children and lead to costly repairs in the long run.

Over time the wetpour can also shrink around the edges of the play area. This can create a trip hazard for children so this is something that needs to be fixed as soon as it happens. This is a relatively easy process called a ‘band repair’ and it involves creating a chase cut around the existing edge, removing the old wetpour, and priming the existing surface before filling in with a new wetpour that is graded to match the original edge minimizing any potential trip hazards.
