I would venture to say water is a part of each of our daily lives. As necessary as it is, water can also cause serious structural mishaps and serious inconvenience by way of a water leak. Water erosion and hydrostatic pressure combined with aging or improperly sealed concrete can result in leaking structures. When utilized correctly, chemical grouting can be the only option for this type of repair, both from a financial and efficiency standpoint.
Typically, a water leak will be under a surface in an inconvenient location, or on a structure
holding back large quantities of water, soil, or both. In either of these scenarios, tear out and replace methods are 1) not an option or 2) costly and could cause a large amount of downtime, which has its own cost not realized on the front end. All of our methods require no excavation and we have a very small working footprint that will have little, if any, hindrance
on your daily workflow. Some substrates experience thermal expansion/contraction and/or dynamic loading, others not so much. This means, there is no “one size fits all” for leak seals. Due to the multiple factors involved (water, concrete structures, soil movement, potential voids) most leak seal repairs may require more than one repair material and that
is not always expanding foam (remember, “Polyfoam” has way more to offer than just expanding resins). We have taken careful consideration in the materials we use to make sure we can provide a total repair plan, not a “one size fits all”.
Common applications for our leak seal repairs:
– Catch Basins
– Water Treatment Plants
