Pond Fountain motor replacement

I'm replacing both failed motors on my pond fountain. Both motors are spliced to the power line using a bus contained in an electrical box, filled with a clear gelatin substance. I've removed all the filling and connected the wiring for the new motors. What is the name of this filling product that was in the electrical box?

That is usually called a potting compound. Normally once poured and hardened.... are virtually impossible to remove.

This is one type I've used in pool work... a little pricey...
Reenterable Electrical Sealing Potting Compound

The only time a box should be potted is if it's submerged under water.
