Author Topic: poured concrete wall cracked and leaking!  (Read 3429 times)

I have a 8 foot long crack on my basement wall that is leaking pretty steadily.  I have had the crack repairman out 3 times for this problem.  He has injected it with some kind of epoxy.  He is coming again today to solve it hopefully for good.  This particular wall is underneath my attached garage so excavating it would be a difficult and expensive undertaking.  But there is alot of water coming in and I would like to stop the water on the outside.  Any ideas on how to get under the garage floor and removing the water ?

Thank you!

ps  I am in Michigan and we have had tons of rain this winter!

The problem is that the repairman is using epoxy to seal a leak. The recommended injection material would be polyurethane resin. Urethane is a flexible material while epoxy is very rigid.

Because the crack has been worked on so much, high pressure methods should be used. This can be done using our 3/8" hammer-in plastic ports and a grease gun. The recommended product that we carry would be the AquaLASTIC polyurethane resin. See our online store for product details.
