the rubber roof is designed to be flat... and water is to run off..
The Eternabond tape is not that thick that what you mention will happen..........
The thickness of the tape is 35ml ( EternaBond RoofSeal )

Quote:

The most common term for vinyl, “mil” (not to be confused with millimeter) is a unit of measurement equal to one thousandth of an inch. Therefore, a 20 mil liner thickness is equal to 20 thousandths of an inch.

So........the Eternabond tape is just .035 Thousands thick, which is Approximately 1/32 of a inch..............
A human hair is around .003 thousands thick..... so, to put this is perspective.........the tape is Approximately 11.6 human hairs thick........
Not enough to "Pool Water" on the roof............

Especially if you remove the "gooped on" prior sealer first!
