Re: Waterstops, and waterproofing

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
About 12 years ago, I recommended XYPEX waterproofing compund for a water treatment station. It was used and I have not heard any complaint about it so far.

Per my previous post I am designing an underground septic tank out of concrete at the clientâ??s request.  It has been a number of years since I have specified waterstops and waterproofing.  I am considering PVC waterstops by Greenstreak and as a backup hydrotite waterstops also by Greenstreak.  I will show the hydrotite on the â??moistâ?? side of the PVC waterstop.  The client has mentioned waterproofing the concrete in addition to the waterstop, although I donâ??t know if that will be needed, but maybe someone of you can push me one way or the other.  Anyway, can anyone out there recommend a waterproofing that can be easily applied within the tank to the concrete walls, and floor.  The tank will be leak tested.  Any other recommendations will be greatly appreciated.
