Default Re: Suggestions for a paint/waterproofer for the dome?

Just wondering if anyone has used swimming pool render, it seems to be flexible comes in cools colour and is waterproof? Oh yes it can take temps of at least 40deg C. As is used in spas.

You might be on to something there. That swimming pool stuff should be very strong. Pebblecrete I think it's called. Just beware that it will also trap moisture beneath it because it's waterproof so you must eliminate the moisture from the oven before applying it.

Hi Guys

FB is just a wealth of oven information and this is a topic i have wanted to see for a while from those without constructions aroudn their ovens. I'm no where near this stage but thought i would ask anyway especailly since Pebble crete has been mentioned in this thread thanks for that SpottedFrog.

I wish to finish my dome with a 5 mm layer [ over the render layer ], so that it looks like Granite Rock. This will then tie into the rest of the garden. I have been researching this now for at least 2 months and haven't got very far. The Granite is a light grey with blacks flecks through it. Has anybody tried anything like this or come across a pebblecrete along these lines.

Because the outer shell of an igloo oven gets pretty dirty from occasional soot falling from the chimney cap, weather and bird and flying fox poo, I find it easier to just repaint the thing every 12 months or so.

Stupid iPod. Where was I. Oh yes.
About the vent to let moisture out of he dome. I have seen a few people's they are nifty little silver vents. Anyone know what they are called or where to get them.
Colin I am also looking at hebel under the dome. How many lintels did you end up with?
The bits I worry the most about are the chimney and the waterproofing. Especially after reading the thread about the exploding floor.
Cheers
Rosemary

Hi Rosemary

Check My Build Out Below, The Photos Show How I Supported The Hearth.

Also I Am Using a Granite Render to finish the oven.

I have been Researching this for some time to find something that resembled Granite. I found this product, it is close enough to what I was looking for. Similar to Pebel Crete but I think more appropriate for ovens [Pebble Crete is manufactured to be submersed].

I have attached some photos that i placed in my build below. There are more [photo's] over at my build. Apparently they have other options and colouring as well.

Vent Mark 11 which is basically a screwed end fitting for a 25 mm pipe. Mark one was open to the air and when it rained the ants headed to higher ground and would have loved to live in my oven. They didnt like the heat when it finally arrived next day after firing the oven.
Ive attached a brass chain to this so it doesnt get lost, and paint will have to wait till it stops raining. Remember I have ceramic and rockwool insulation and this works well. I don't know if it would work the same with say Pearlcrete?

Regards Dave

Hi Dave,
A question regarding your vent. (pizza oven vent that is!!). I have a layer of vermiculite/cement over the insulating blanket, did you sit the fitting on top of this or did you create a hole down to the blanket?

I assume that being at the top of the dome, any moisture will find its way up the inside of the render layer and out the vent as this would be the easiest pathway for any steam/moisture. Is this assumption correct?

Regards

Craig
