Leak in concrete tank

I use a concrete tank as reservoir for spring water. The tank has developed a leak around the house supply line where it exits the tank, probably due to the water line motion when the pump kicks on. Anyway, what can I use to stop this leak and prevent future leaks?

Leak in concrete tank

There is a hydraulic cement product made by Euclid chemical company called "Dam-it" that i have had very good results with. It's easy to work with, very strong, and very quick to use. Once mixed, you have about three minutes to work it in place, but once it's there-it ain't goin nowhere! To achieve a little more working time, you can mix it with ice water.


I used it to repair some leaking drain pits at a carwash. that was about 10 years ago and as far as i know, its still holding. You can go the their website or call them to see where the nearest distributor is.
If it has to do with concrete, these guys are the pros. Very knowledgeable and very friendly.
