Default Re: Silicone vs. Titebond background adhesion methods. My review.

Titebond III is a PVA wood glue and has nothing to do with concrete. It is water resistant when dry not water proof. It should not be used as part of a water feature where it will be in constant contact with water.

If you want to properly seal something that will be in or around water constantly you should use drylok as it is actually waterproof.

You can also coat other areas of the hardscape you want to seal or add texture to like branches, pvc pipes, rock waterfalls, etc.

If you are using GS I too recommend the black 'pond' great stuff because it doesn't show through like the yellow normal kind.
