Like Lou said, you protect the weepholes so they don't get clogged up and then you use dry pack mud which is very porous, water travels thru it to the weepholes. Here is a pic of a divot drain with...

Hi David. Your friend is probably talking about using PVC pan liner with the X-15 glue. It's pretty strong smelling. I've never used a mask and I'm completely normal.:crazy:
