aqua plug concrete

Has anybody used this aqua plug concrete product for repair water leaks? Does it work?

When it rains heavily, my garage which is about 2 feet below ground has ground water seeping into the foundation wall along the floor. The guy at the local home supply store suggested using aqua plug concrete mix to fill the void between the concete wall and floor.

Yes, hydraulic cement is good at fixing leaks if you follow the directions. It actually sets up underwater and expands a bit, instead of shrinking a little like ordinary portland cement.

Hydraulic cement is a proven way to stop water flow through joints.

Make sure the joint is clean (no dust). It does not have to be dry and can be damp.

It the joint is too narrow, you can open it up slightly to a dovetail shape so you can force in the hydraulic cement and it has something to "key" or lock into when it cures and expands slightly.

Good luck!!

Thanks for the advice.

I applied the aqua plug concete along one wall (using an old knife to push it into the voids). It works great, no more water leaks when it rains heavily. Now I just need to do the other walls
