Wet Pour Repair
Wetpour is a durable surface type but sometimes a repair is necessary.
Wet pour 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. It also reduces the chance of the area becoming unsafe for the children to use.
Wetpour Repair Maintenance
It is recommended that you take a proactive approach to looking after your wet pour surface.
A regular brush and clean will remove dirt and natural debris which can get stuck within the pores of the wetpour system. This can lead to waterlogging in wet conditions.
If the playground surface does sustain damage and it’s in need of maintenance, we can help.
We can also supply wet pour repair kits which allow you to fix small areas of damage yourself.
The wet pour repair process generally involves cutting around the damaged area and filling it in with a new layer of EPDM surfacing.
We often recommend cutting out a shape and filling with a different colour of rubber mixture. This is because the wetpour can fade in colour over time and the new rubber may not match the existing.
Our team are experts when it comes to repairing EPDM rubber surfacing.
We are professionally trained to fix the damages on site. You can be sure that your surface will look great and fit for purpose.

Wetpour Perimeter Shrinkage Repairs
As well as fixing minor damage on your wetpour surface, you may also need to repair the perimeter.
This is because the wetpour rubber can be prone to shrinking and expanding. This can be caused by the fluctuating hot and cold weather in the UK.
When this happens, the rubber surface can start to pull away from the edge around the perimeter. This leaves a crack or crevasse which can be dangerous and cause trip hazards for children. It is very important to get this problem fixed as soon as possible.
We carry out wetpour perimeter shrinkage repairs in the UK. This is done by filling in the gap around the edge of the playground area with a new application of EPDM rubber. We often do this in a different colour to create a contrasting border.
