Mortar applied with pressure


I want to inject mortar mix into a hole about 3/8" to 1/2". Around the equivalent to 2 quarts. The mortar mix is to fill a void. It is only a one time application. I'm looking for a home made device. Any suggestions? Thanks.

It all depends on the use/purpose of the mortar and what the surrounding materials are. The simplest method is to make it very fluid if that is compatible with the surrounding materials.

without knowing what you are attenpting to do, you could be making your 2 quarts mor complicated that it really is. - You may not need a "device".

The mortar is going under a polyurethane shower pan that has been set in mortar mix. There is a small void underneath. The only way to fill this void is to drill a hole in the bottom and apply with pressure the mix. There is no other way to get it in there. The floor flexes, causing grout cracking.

You can buy tubes of mortar and could put some tubing on the end to reach in further if necessary. They go into a regular caulking gun.

Thanks for the info. I will check the local hardware store. I also am going to try to clean an existing tube and mix the mortar thinner, and apply with my caulk gun. I can pull the stopper out of the tube and fill with the mortar. I also have a canvas tube for grout that would be my last resort. Something will work.
