What determines how much Hydro SandBinder I will need for my arena footing?

Application rate depends on the depth of your arena and additives. For an average of 3 inches geotextile arena footing the application rate is 1 gallon per 25 square feet. So for a Standard dressage arena 60mx20m (13000 f2) 650 gallons = 2 x 275 gal tanks
For a 20,000 sqft jumping arena with 4 inches 1,100 gallons = 4 x 275 gal tanks

Will Hydro SandBinder work on different types of arena footing?

Yes, it works on a wide range of footings, sand, geotextile and rubber/sand horse footing.

As it binds with the sand, it is relatively independent to the sand added materials. Geotextile sand footing is favorable, since it absorbs the fluid well and keeps it moist.

Will I still need to water my arena footing?

No, FS SandBinder does not need any watering.  If additional tightness in the footing is desired, adding a minimal amount of water will give the footing some extra stability. FS SandBinder works up to 12 months in your footing, after this period, a re-application is recommended.

Will Hydro SandBinder freeze in my arena footing during cold, winter weather?

No — FS SandBinder will not freeze even at -30 degrees F. Therefore it is ideal in cold climates where there exists concerns of temperatures affecting the ability to have dust control.
