Wet Pour Repair

Although it’s a relatively low maintenance surface specification, prolonged heavy use can lead to damage or flooding in some parts of the playground flooring. It’s important to take care of these issues as soon as possible to prevent them from spreading and causing the play area to be unsafe for the children to use.

Wetpour Repair Maintenance
It is recommended that you take a proactive approach to looking after your rubber playground surface by regularly brushing to remove dirt and natural debris which can get stuck within the pores of the wetpour system and lead to waterlogging in wet conditions. However if the playground surface does sustain damage and it’s in need of wetpour repair maintenance, please get in touch with us as we can come out to site and take care of the repairs for you. We can also supply wet pour repair kits which allow you to fix the damage yourself if the problem is contained to a small area with only minor damage.
The wet pour repair process generally involves cutting around the damaged area and filling it in with a new layer of EPDM surfacing, however we often recommend cutting out a decorative looking shape and filling in the shape with a different colour of rubber mixture. This is because the wetpour surfacing can fade in colour over time and sometimes the new rubber will not match the colour in the existing area so it can look better if it’s filled in with a different coloured design. Please make sure you get in touch with us if you need some advice about wet pour surface repairs and maintenance, we’ll get back to you with some help regarding costs for these services.
Wetpour Perimeter Shrinkage Repairs
As well as fixing minor damaged areas in the rubber playground surface, sometimes wetpour perimeter shrinkage repairs are needed. This is because the wetpour rubber specification can sometimes be prone to shrinking and expanding, especially with fluctuating hot and cold weather in the UK. When this happens, the rubber surface can start to pull away from the edge it has been laid up to, leaving a crack or crevasse which can be dangerous and cause trip hazards for children so it’s important to get this problem fixed. We can carry out these wetpour perimeter shrinkage repairs by filling in the gap around the edge of the playground area with a new application of EPDM rubber, often in a different colour to create a contrasting border.
Wet Pour Border Repair
Your wetpour facility overtime will start to shrink around the sides. This will cause the outer border to begin to get smaller inwards leading to cracks around the playground. This can be dangerous for young children because they might possibly fall when playing on the surfacing. Also not addressing the problems rapidly it can cause more dangerous complications developing making repairs far more costly. We supply a specialist wet pour border repair service that fills in the cracks with EPDM rubberised granules.
