interior applied product to stop ground water from wicking thru

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]

A possible solution might be to drill holes through the wall and pressure-inject chemical (hydrophilic) grout into the soil behind the wall.  This works better for spot leaks than seepage over a wide area; and you've got to think through the idea that you're pressurizing the back of the wall and may damage (or possibly collapse) it.  But, it might work.

Xypex interacts with the cement, so it might stop leaks through the

grout. But it won't help rocks or voids.
