I don't know if you need to go for the really expensive made for fish ponds sealant, especially if it might be a long time before you add fish. If you have the water out of the pond you can use a normal, high quality silicone and let it cure for a couple days before refilling. I have also had good luck with polyurethane sealants. Whatever you choose make sure you clean the area well. Maybe even with a wire brush to remove an loose surface material from the block or mortar.

Smile thanks

Thanks a lot!
I guess I tend to overdo things
Started clearing joints around the pipes and glad I have not used the expensive stuff yet.
I have "Silicone II W/D supreme 2x stretch (withstands extreme joint movement) 1 hour rain ready"
Can/should I go with my ThoroSeal over the. Could be overdoing it again, but I imagine the joins will look odd under water unless I cover them with something.

Hope it's the right stuff.

I think ThoroSeal is more a rigid masonry product. It would probably crack and flake off if applied over something as flexible as silicone. You should be able to find a good silicone in white (commonly used in bathrooms) so you don't have to cover it.

The ThoroSeal is your waterproof layer so insure that you get good adhesion between it and your pipe.
