leaking slab

i have a deck poured over top of a cool cellar..there was no rubber water gasket (if that is what it is called ) installed in this pour..now a bit of water leaks between the patio slab and runs down into my cold sotrage area...this slab sits half on the edge of the basement wall and is poured high enough to be even with the brick veneer...is there some sort of sealent that i can paint on to close this gap and stop this water?

How wide and how long is the space that needs to be sealed? There are things that come in a tube that are appied with a cauking gun or you can make your own mix.

the joint is about 12 feet total with a 90 degree corner..the joint is tight..just not water tight...would a liqid like a driveway sealer do this kind of thing or is some type of caulking recomended

the joint is between the poured deck and the top edge of the footing that the brick veneer sits on

when the wall was poured there was a ledge left for the deck to sit on to hold the patio cement and then the other half of the wall was up to grade...then the brick was put on that top ledge
then the 'q' deck was put on the ledge and poured up to about a 1/4 inch below the brick

Just go to your local hardware store. They have various types of exterior caulking for that exact problem. Any of them should work.
