Due to aging and deterioration of the city’s water supply infrastructure, a comprehensive repair project for the drinking water reservoirs was needed. The first phase of the Saratov Reservoir project comprised the repair of two concrete reservoirs, each holding 22,000 m3 of drinking water.
The Penetron repair team routed out all leaking construction joints, visible cracks and leaks, and cut back any exposed rebar stubs and damaged concrete. PENECRETE MORTAR was then applied to the prepared areas. In addition, to protect the reinforced concrete structures from further water penetration due to the high hydrostatic pressure, PENETRON, a topical crystalline material, was applied as a slurry to permanently waterproof the concrete surfaces.
