Is it possible to spray Dry-Lock?

I want to spray the 2nd and 3rd coats on a masonary wall.

Drylok can be sprayed but it requires a very big pump. I've painted all my life but only worked for 1 company that equipment that could handle it [3 gpm ] Drylok even if sprayed has to be rolled for it to be effective.

Why do you intend to use 3 coats? 2 is what they recomend but 1 coat applied correctly is usually sufficent. I would make the 3rd coat an appropriate finish paint which would wear and last longer.

I would say I def. need 2 because I still had a few pinholes here and there even though I brushed it on. I guess 3 is overkill. Do you have any suggestions for using a roller?

The trick to applying drylok is to slop it on so that the entire surface gets coated. After you have gobbed it on and the roller starts to dry out a little, roll that section again to smooth it all out. Put the paint on heavy and don't worry about runs at first but then roll it out even as your roller runs out of material.

I know I could show you easier than I can explain it but hopefully you get the picture.
