Looked at a job today that has an open space under the Garage. They have water coming in where the Garage floor slab meets the Poured Concrete Wall. There is a fairly wide opening along that joint, would say around 3/8 - 1/2" gap. Owner is planing to "Fill" that space with Hydraulic Cement. Would you have a better product to use on an application like this?

Anytime water is coming up through a joint or crack, there must be a drainage system installed under the floor. It will not be possible to "seal" the water out with any type a product.

Not you average basement repair contractor.
