Customer Location:

Kansas City, MO

 
 

Application Date:

November, 2016

 
 

Application Situation:

The concrete walls around the pipe(s) of a runoff water pit had deteriorated and were allowing ground water to flow in and artificially fill up the pit.

 
 

Problem:

The ground water was further deteriorating the walls around the pipe(s) and allowing ground water to fill up the pit.

 
 

Products:

Belzona 4131

Belzona 5811

 

Substrate:

concrete

 
 

Application Method:

The area around the pipe was hand prep with a grinder to achieve the desired surface profile. Backing rod was pushed into the voids around the pipe to create a backing for the 4131. Finally, Belzona 5811 was applied to seal the repair area.

 
 

Belzona Facts:

Replacing the pit was not an option and the concrete if left along would further deteriorate and destroy the entire function of the pit.
