By dingaMarch 11, in DIY housing forum. I’m really pleased with the outcome, but now a few of the bricks are crumbling and I’d appreciate any suggestions about how the bricks can be treated to prevent any further deterioration one thought was to drain the pond and apply an epoxy paint to the internal rendering – if moisture is the problem.
The bricks came from Nakhon Sawan, are handmade from I assume red clay and apparently have been fired. They are clearly much weaker than the small red bricks favoured by Thai brickies, and are similar to the ones used to construct the old temples.
Depends how big it is, back home l fibre glassed the inside of a pond, last for ever. Never used them there bricks, I have used small red bricks for a retaining garden wall and never treated them in any way, there best left to breath naturally.
Assuming the render was mixed correctly with waterproofing additives, it still would be a good idea to put two coats of epoxy paint, which would be better for the fish anyhow. Sealing the face-bricks on the outside will not solve the problem alone the water side of the pond needs to be sealed.
Is there any white colouring appearing on the brick surface of the outer wall.? Thanks for the advice so far. Have now attached some photos which show the problem with 3 of the bricks.

In any event, sounds like I should paint the inside with epoxy. If I do that, without replacing the bricks, is there anything available to preserve the exisiting bricks? Actually, that looks kind of cool.
You might need a post on how you did that. I like what I call ” the stressed look ” in wood and brickwork in many building projects, gives it character instead of a squeaky clean plastic look but it’s not for all. If you want once you have done your internal seal, you can do a rough fill in mix using crushed parts of the bricks you used, alternately, cut gently with a small grinder about the depth of half the brick, and cut a brick of the same that was used to fit into the void you have made, and grout in.
The texture of the brick look great,, i would attack a few others with a hammer and make them all look cool, if you want the weathered look just spray or sprinkle some milk on the bricks and let it dry and weather naturally, as for your problem, you have. People will say it doesn’t exist, they are ill informed or just lazy to get it for you. Good luck with you project and i welcome more posts and their advice, it’s good to learn from other people.
You make a good point but I would still leave the brickwork before doing any kind of weather sealing if it was something that was being decided to do. I wouldn’t say it’s as bad as that, he could be if the structure is not maintained, in the future he could look at reconstruction but that said I would be happy for it being left for a long while. Goodluck with your build in the photo, looks good. I think you may be using materials which aren’t ideal, It does look yery Sukhothai but unless you would like to rebiult it totally at some stage then you will have to create a barrier or membrane between the water inside and the bricks, If you wanted to keep that look you could drain the pond and rebuild it using mose suitable materials and rebuilding th outside with the existing red bricks, only in a veneer style.
I would be a bit of bother but become rock solid and look simillar to the way it does now only made of more suitable materials. Next weekend, will drain and refill before putting the lotus’ and fish back in Lanko is supposedly not toxic to fish, but just to be sure So far, so good – will update this post in 6 months or so, or earlier if the original problem returns sooner!

Is it the case you just used some duff bricks.? Are you able to replace the ones that are crumbling, that’s your best option if you can. Edited March 11, by Kwasaki.
