Are you trying to patch a crack/joint or just coat the surface of the wall.

Dike hydraulic cement, I used to sell it when I worked in the hardware store. Can’t find a listing for Dike. The link below is for Quickrete, I don’t have any experience with Quickrete band. The Dike would work on flowing water.

You can waste money plugging it. But you need to determine what it is and why the wet and soggy block.

I use products from Abatron all the time.

Water. Gravity. Physics. Against the best products on the planet. Water will win brother. You have to source what it causing your block to fill with water. Or if you seal and fix it, the one next to it will fill next.

If you do not address the why your block is filling with water, and you seal it off so so it cannot harbor water? The water is just going to find itself to blocks nearby and cause you nightmares beyond those you already have.

Water is heavy and seeks low points. Cannot help it. Clogged gutters, bad grading and drainage could be causing that block to fill.

Did you read the OPs post?

You need a fast setting hydraulic cement, a professional grade like this would work best:

(Go to the bottom of the last page and look for the "Dam-It)

You typically want to mix it relatively quickly and create a ball of it on your hand (you really need to wear gloves with this stuff as it's very caustic) and force it into the hole. It set's within a minute or so, often less if the water pressure is minimal.
