Leaking fountain sealed with polyurea

The Piazza d’Italia in downtown New Orleans centers around a fountain that includes the shape of Italy. A planned renovation included sealing the fountain, which had developed leaks over the years. The concrete restoration contractor hired for the job opted to use Prime Guard 7000 polyurea. The 6000-square-feet of fountain surface includes dozens of steps, meaning endless corners to coat. Those weren’t a problem since Prime Guard 7000 is a spray-applied coating. Read more about the project here.
