Ground water

Years ago I installed a below grade commode with a sanitary ejection pump. THis pump worked well for 5 years. I recently had the pump replaced and I believe that in the course of replacing this pump, the installer broke the concrete seal around the sanitary drain that empties into the crock with the pump. Ground water continuously seeps into the crock triggering the pump.
What product could I use to seal this concrete back to prevent the water from getting in. It seems as if moisture is ever present and I do not know if this will dry out enough for actual concrete. ANy advice is welcome.

I would use a hydraulic cement. This will expand to stop the leak and seal it. Not sure of any name brands but would check at a home center. Good luck.
