Slurry and slurry pumps


Hello I have been advised to mix a slurry of medium sand and concrete like milk in order to fill in a horizontal tunnel under concrete. I was told I dont need a pump to do this.Does anyone have experience doing something like this? Thanks for any information.

Well,slurry is portland cement and water no sand,and maybe if you tell us what your trying to do and who advised the fix, someone might be able to help.

Are you sure that tunnel isn't a culvert? Where would all that water go when the big rains arrive?
