RE: water proof

If you really need waterproof for your retaining wall, I would use XYPEX concrete waterproof (www.xypex.com).  Also see ICC Report #9907 (http://www.icc-es.org/reports/pdf_files/SBC/9907.pdf).

Hi

 

what the best way to water proof retaining wall and footing close to the beach

I designed the 12" retaining wall with 24" thick footing  also acting as slab

no heel for retaining wall

 

water will up rise behind the wall

 

 

the contractor want to pour 6" mud slab over the water proof material

then pour the  24"  footing

 

I did not like the idea

 

any one with idea let me know

 

Thanks
