Specialized products get the job done
We have always strived to provide
repair and construction materials that last longer, look better and are easier
for you, our customers, to work with. E-Z Patch uses innovative materials
(like Polymers and Pozzalans) to
create our unique new products for the pool industry.
Pool decking, plaster, tile, etc. have many unique problems that
cannot be solved with a single "catch-all" product. E-Z Patch has created
specific products to repair specific pool damage. For example, old coping stone
replacement is time consuming and it is sometimes impossible to find matching
stones. We developed a repair kit, E-Z Patch 5, with full instructions to repair
coping stones, even if most of the coping stone is missing.
Cantilevered edge pool decks can break off on the underside. That
means the repair must be completed against gravity. We developed a repair kit,
E-Z Patch 6, with full instructions, that allows you to easily repair
cantilevered edges, upside down.
Rebar steel rusts through the pool plaster leaving an unsightly stain,
when the rebar steel in the pool are not covered with the right amount of gunite
or shotcrete cement during new construction. In the past, repairing meant
cutting out the steel rebar and carefully cleaning up the metal filings. Often
times remaining steel not properly finished would rust through again. To solve
this problem, we developed a special formula sealing cement, E-Z Patch 7, that
seals so well you'll never have to cut out the old piece of rusted rebar.

Ground movement usually causes the need for tile or grout repairs. Cement
type repair supplies such as our E-Z Patch 3,4 & 4F.S. are acceptable to repair
problems that are not due to ground movement, or for quick underwater repairs.
To properly repair damaged tile or grout due to ground movement or shifting,
flexible Neutral Cure silicone rubber should be used. Acetoxy
(acid based) silicone rubber is a very cheap type of silicone rubber and is not
suitable for bonding to masonry surfaces due to it corroding the contact it
makes to these surfaces. It actually breaks it’s own bonding in usually one to
two years. However, our Neutral Cure formula of silicone rubber bonds well
to masonry, fiberglass, metal, etc. Our products, E-Z Patch 22SS with
scrubber pads or E-Z Patch 22 (10 oz. cartridge), have a 30 year
life expectancy. They are formulated to be used as a tile setting adhesive and a
tile grout all in one. In addition to clear, we offer a white color that is not
glossy and is off-white so that it looks more like regular cement grout.
Expansion joint rubber formulas in self-leveling and step grade versions
traditionally have several product problems. The product longevity is
short-lived, it doesn't cure quickly enough, and it is complicated to apply.
Even worse, the shelf life is short so you never know if the batch of joint
rubber formula you've purchased is any good. Enter E-Z Patch's special formula
of neutral cure silicone rubber in self-leveling, E-Z Patch 23. Our
special neutral cure formula cures quickly, has a 50 year life expectancy, requires no mixing or primer
and can be used down to 0°F.
Cracks in plaster and decks can be best repaired using a flexible repair.
E-Z Patch has developed a liquid elastomeric crack preventer (E-Z Patch 24) that
can be applied over any repaired crack to give a flexible repair to the cracked
area prior to retexturing deck, replastering, painting or coating
Repairing vinyl liners in pools has it own set of challenges. Problems
include; the residue from the adhesive getting in your hair and eyes when doing
an underwater repair, short working time to use the product, vinyl patches
“sucking thru” on large rips with heavy water flow and the adhesive turning
yellow. Our clear rubber sealant leaves no residue when applied underwater
(works underwater or above water). It gives a full 5 minutes of working time,
and doesn't stick to your hand if it is wet. In many cases, the sealant will
repair rips, cuts or pinholes without a patch. Our sealant makes it’s own clear
patch that does not yellow. When repairing a very large rip or cut that has a
lot of water flow or pressure, it can be used as an adhesive for a vinyl patch
(clear vinyl patch included) that does not “suck through”. It is also excellent
for repairs to plastic skimmer leaks or light fixture leaks.
Glaze chips and crack on glazed Ceramic tiles can be easily repaired with
E-Z Patch 15, available in many colors.
Chips and cracks in Saltillo tile can be easily repaired with E-Z Patch
13 Terra Cotta (red-brown) or E-Z Patch 14 Yellow-Tan. Both can be combined for
matching other colors found in Saltillo-type tiles.
