One of my long time clients has hired me to replace the fountain lights and fountain pumps on two large outdoor fountains outside their building. While they are shut down, they want to do some other work as well, and have asked me if I could be sort of the "GC" on this project, as they don't want to deal with three or four different contractors.

I have found someone to paint the fountains and do some of the patch work they wanted, but I am not sure what trade I need to contact to re-do the water-proofing on the fountains. I looked up "water-proofing" contractors locally, and it looked to be people that dealt mainly with basement sealing. Would a pool contractor be better? Outdoor landscaper? Do it myself? Any thoughts would be appreciated.

many probably most fountains are impossible to properly waterproof. Generally you don't have access to the inside of the column where the pipe runs but keeping water out of this is almost impossible.

Generally the best way is to drain the system and let it dry out prior to winter freeze.

You would need to contact a mason. I had a project similar to yours and they knew what product to use and were familiar with it. Looks like a few posts already list products. You should be on the right path. Probably something that you could do yourself.
