Hi Cathy - I see in your answer to a previous question that you all had similar problems to what we're having and had success with a StoneTech product. Do you know which StoneTech product was used? Thank you!

Beautiful and fun idea for a special occasion
What is behind all those curtains in the sitting room? An incredible, 8-inch-deep reflecting pool, inspired by one he'd seen in a hotel lobby in Thailand. "This was once a simple 800-square-foot deck, with 200 to 300 potted plants on it," Phornirunlit explains. "I realized it took about two hours a day
day to make sure they were all watered and decided to make a change."The reflecting pool is surrounded by a delightful mix of repeated elements including inexpensive chairs from IKEA adorned with Warhol-esque Chairman Mao pillows, elephant-shaped umbrella stands, $10 umbrellas from Pier 1, and a Buddha
