Drain Only Weep Tubes

leaky building

Weep tubes for masonry weep holes.  Weep holes are the gaps left between some bricks in external masonry walls.  They serve 2 purpose:

Ventilation of the internal wall cavity – Without ventilation, mildew, dry rot and damp reduce the life of the internal wall studs and other building materials within the cavity. Inadequate ventilation is the main cause of “Leaky Building Syndrome”.

Drainage – Water that enters the cavity due to capillary action, condensation, damage, or accidental flooding needs to escape somewhere.

One end of the tube is bent in a downward position to prevent wind driven rain from being forced back into the tube.  This also prevents water running down the wall from re-entering the building. They will not fill with sediment because the fabric filters it, but allows the water to drain.

Standard size weep tubes

Our standard size weep tubes are 3.5 inchess in length and have an outside diameter of 3/8 inches (inside diameter 1/4 inch.)

Custom size weep tubes

Custom lengths are available.

700 Masonry Detergent Cleaner

New Masonry detergent 700 is a blend of organic and inorganic acids combined with special wetting
systems and inhibitors formulated for final cleandown of new masonry. 700 detergent effectively removes excess
mortar, job dirt, and normal job stains from brick, stone tile, exposed aggregate and other types of
new masonry construction not subject to metallic stains. It is safer to handle than Muriatic acid.

700 Detergent is formulated with special wetting agents and inhibitors which allow the product to remain on the porous masonry
for longer periods of time. This provides maximum efficiency in the cleaning solutions.

700 Detergent penetrates mortar smears fast, allowing a pressure rinse to remove them completely
with minimal scrubbing . Proper application of 700 detergent leaves the masonry surface clean and uniform with no acid
burning or streaking.

700 detergent is concentrated for ease in handling and shipping. Five gallons of 700 detergent
makes up to 40 gallons of cleaner.
