Initially, PENEPLUG, a rapid-setting, cementitious compound, was applied to plug any large leaks in the concrete. The next step was cleaning out and filling in any visible cracks and construction joints, form-tie holes, honey-combed areas and any damaged concrete with PENECRETE MORTAR. In a final step, PENETRON was applied as a spray to the positive side of the concrete over the whole surface of the tanks.
