    Got a lot of experience with floor coatings.

    Jet Dry is fine if you do 2 things:

    1) Ensure you have no sub slab moisture issues

    2) Ensure you Acid Etch the concrete properly first

    Most floor coatings fail for 1 or both of the above issues.

    If you have moisture ingression (hydraulic action) in your slab no amount of painting or sealing will work.

    To test leave a piece of plastic on the slab, if you get dampness under it after a few days you've got an issue.

    Also white powder or residue on the surface or under a peeling coating (efflorescence) is the result of the same thing.

    you have to eliminate the moisture source first and seal it from the point of moisture entry not exit. In the case of an existing slab only drainage is an option.

    Secondly steel troweled slabs are slippery, the paint wont stick to that smooth surface, you need to etch it or roughen it up.

    Spot on Mr Norm.
    I had feck all moisture coming out of the slab, this garage has hardly been used I mentioned, top was quite clean/free of grease etc.
    Foundations etc is dry as, quite clay based, I could tell they had built this quite well.
    My slab actually has around its perimeter a 2" gap to the walls that is like a drainage/aggline done for retaining walls etc. I like that thought just in case.
    Upon giving it a great gurnie clean first then I acid etched it.
    Let it dry a couple of days.
    Then painted a tester 6-8" line entirely across till dry next day.
    Its all in the prep Dash - I reckon I'm a ok.

    All the best with your repair - thats a right royal PIA, especially when having to pay for it.

    Hmm, what's new....

    Go in for my hernia op finally next week.
    Boss sold the business so now we have a corporate ruling us... Contract is interesting to say the least. Restraint clauses suck balls.
    Cars still parked up in the garage waiting for repliglass to pull their finger out of their ass and finish the work they should have had finished last week.
    Asshole developers got the go ahead to build 39 houses next door. If my missus was working the house would already be on the market.
    Other than that all peachey here lol.

    yes mate, I can still live without FB, you don't miss what you don't (never) have

    D, tell me more re the hernia scenario ?
    I'm about to go through this myself damn it ! had the right side pop out long ago and upon seeing the gp said as long as it doesn't hurt or cause me pain/issues relax about it, that was 2 odd yrs ago BUT now the left side came through some months ago and whilst I was at Bathurst i suffered some massive pains, had to buckle over a few times to relieve the pain.
    Thankfully since it had subsided but I've experienced growling and slight pain off on, went to gp and got referred for xrays.
    confirmed I need to see specialist and coming up mid this week.
    I know I need an op to repair the tissue/s and can't wait for I'm pretty active and no good leaving as is.
    Its worried me in the back of my mind having had 3 odd OS trips since hoping nothing else occurs whilst I'm not in Oz.
    Chine for this week so look forward getting on top of this before travels start again late Jan 2019.

    Iíve got six umbilical hernias, basically between my belly button and rib cage.
    My pain levels fluctuate between mild to severe for the last six months or so.
    Get some weird looks sometimes when itís really painful when Iím out and Iím standing there manipulating my insides to go back where theyíre supposed to be. Thatís the most painful bit.
    Iím getting mesh implanted to cover everything in one go then therapy to learn how to strengthen my core so it doesnít happen again.
    Surgeon said minimum 2weeks off work but when he found out Iím a forklift driver and do physical he said Iíll need a longer break. So Iíll probably be off work until January.
    I donít have medical insurance but this still doesnít make me want to get it. Although 12 months on a waiting list has pretty much cost me a year through inability to do much physical stuff.
