Polyurethane Crack Injection for Water Treatment Facilities

Polyurethane Crack Injection for Water Treatment Facilities

Water and wastewater treatment facilities are some of the most essential services for municipalities. They supply drinking water to communities and treat wastewater before being discharged into lakes or rivers. Unfortunately, many water and wastewater treatment facilities are ageing and badly need repairs. Maintenance of these facilities is essential for any municipality. These facilities are subject to harsh environments that can cause cracks in the water tanks and concrete settling, which can cause damage to the building itself. These issues may cause the water to become contaminated and unsafe for consumption. The solution for your local municipal water treatment facility? Polyurethane crack injection. Quattro Contracting uses polyurethane concrete crack injection to ensure your water treatment facility will stay in perfect working order.

Polyurethane crack injection is when polyurethane resin is pumped into cracks in walls and water holding tanks to fill and seal them. This prevents the water from leaking out. A significant benefit of using polyurethane crack injections is that they can be applied to damp surfaces. This means contractors do not need to wait for the surface around the crack to dry to begin. Another excellent advantage of polyurethane concrete injection is its flexibility. It allows for slight movement, or shifting of the foundation, protects your water treatment facility and prevents further damage. Polyurethane concrete crack injection can be used in a variety of situations. The process is relatively quick and easy, so service interruption is minimal. 

Polyurethane crack injection is a two-step process. The first step involves the inspection of the concrete by a trained technician. The second step is the actual crack injection. The surface doesn't need to be dry to complete the work. The installation is as fast and offers minimal disruption to municipal services. Polyurethane concrete crack injections are the most common solution for damp, cracked foundations. The cost and length of time needed to complete the process will depend on the size and location of the cracks. Quattro Contracting will make sure the work is completed efficiently and promptly.

Maintaining water and wastewater treatment facilities is essential for any municipality. Most treatment facilities use tanks that are made of reinforced concrete and require crack waterproofing. With time, reinforced concrete can become corroded due to dissolved chlorides in the water that can penetrate the concrete and destroy the protective passivating layer that keeps the steel inside safe from corrosion. Concrete corrosion can cause cracks that can halt service if left untreated. The cracks in the concrete may not be visible or too small to see at first, but they will eventually leak due to pressure changes if they are not fixed quickly. These cracks can also cause potential water contamination due to exposed water in the tank.

Concrete settling can also be an issue for water and wastewater treatment facilities. Changing weather can cause the ground to shift and cause cracks in the foundation, walls, or even the tanks. Quattro Contracting's polyurethane concrete lifting and filling services are long-lasting fixes that will ensure your municipalities water treatment facilities work for years to come. The best advantage of this method is that it's highly efficient and can be completed quickly without shutting down operations or taking anything offline for long periods.
