15,000 gallon concrete reservori leaking.


How can I seal a slow leaking, 25 year old, rebar reinforced concrete reservori? Appears leak must be in the floor of the reservori, no sign of leaks in the walls.

15,000 gallon concrete reservori leaking.


1. Drain the reservoir, then repair any cracks and put waterproofing (they make a trowel-on concrete like spackling) on the inside surface.

2. Install a flexible sheet plastic liner or bladder (may or may not require draining the reservoir.

3. Don't drain the reservoir but have a not-so-deep sea diver go down and patch any cracks with hydraulic cement.
