Concrete Snap Tie Leaks

 

How to stop running water coming from a snap tie pocket in a basement wall.

1. Remove the snap tie from the wall, wire brush the surface of the concrete.

2. For holes bigger than an 1/8″ , fill with Waterprlug Hydraulic cement. Allow the Waterplug to set for 30 minutes

3. Brush on a heavy coat of Epoxy Waterproofer over the Waterplug and overlap 1″ all the way around the patch.

The Epoxy Waterproofer can be used without Waterplug if the pocket left by the snap tie is less than 1/8″ in diameter.

This repair is permanent and will prepare your wall to accept further waterproofing coatings.
