Wetpour Repair is the process of repairing areas of damage on an EPDM rubber safety surface. It is a job that is best left to the professionals, as there are several tools required including a Stanley knife and paddle-style mixer and you will need to ensure the mix of binder and rubber granules is at the perfect ratio for a smooth finish. Having this expertise will also help to ensure that the repair is done correctly and lasts for a long time.
Regular maintenance of a wet pour playground is essential to spot issues and carry out repairs before they become bigger problems. This includes the removal of weeds, grass and leaves which can break down and clog the wet pour surface’s pores. If this happens, it means the surface will be unable to drain which can lead to puddles and trip hazards.

Another issue that can occur is the shrinking of a wetpour surface around the perimeter edges. This is a natural process that can occur over time, but it is important to get this repaired as soon as possible to prevent the surfacing from coming away from the edges and creating a gap or crevice.
To rectify this, our expert installers can carry out a band repair. This involves cutting back the existing surfacing and then applying a new wearing course. This is usually done in a contrasting colour to create a design finish and can completely transform the look of your wetpour.
