Question
I have an 800 gallon  water fall in my backyard.  The reservoir holds about 600 gallons.  The cold winter is freezing most of the water. I have very little water flowing at this point. Is there anything I can do or add to the water so that it doesn't freeze. I'm concerned that I'll burn up the pump once all the water freezes.  What do you recommend?  Thanks

Answer
Hello Sam!
You could try adding some solar or kosher salt. This will not hurt the fish (other types of salt can hurt the fish because they have additives that are poisonous to them. About 1 pound of solar of kosher salt should not hurt your plants either and might help to keep that waterfall flowing better.

Question
Brick company used Sherwin Williams water based stain to match new addition brick to old brick. They said it would last the lifetime of the brick. It does match very well but I keep thinking it will wash off. Is this a standard practice? I think we should have contacted a professional brick stain company rather than using the brick company recommendation.

Answer
I understand your concern for the quality of the method used in this situation.
The Sherwin Williams is considered a good product, but is often referred as a temporary solution to staining brick. In some cases it may last years, on the other hand, depending how the application was done, and considering weather changes, these products often peel or wear off and need to be redone. The reason:  This product is silicone based, therefore keeping the brick from "breathing". If a brick does not "breathe", it's humidity level is not released, which later causes problems as such. (i.e. cracking, peeling etc.)
A professional brick stain company, such as the NAWKAW system, is often referred for staining brick solutions. Nawkaw Emulsion Color Treatment is a water-based, multi polymer formulation of resin solids, color pigments and specially formulated tint-base.  This product does not affect the quality of the brick and is guaranteed for 25 years or more.
Hoping this helps.

Question
I have a concrete pool which is empty (valve open), currently being repaired. Some hairline small cracks in the side walls have been channeled and filled but two are still leaking water (from outside the pool) when we get rain. The builder is about to render pebble-mix over this. Is this okay considering the water seepage inwards? Won't it force the render off?

Answer
Do not let them Pebble the pool if there is still water seeping into the pool.  The pool shell needs to be completely waterproof before the Pebble is applied.  No plaster or Pebble surface is waterproof and this has been proven by the National Plasters Council.  Make sure all the cracks are properly repaired and the shell is waterproof before you allow them to Pebble the pool.
