Flaking Concrete repair


T

tonto1

I have inherited a large (6' x 8' x 10') water tank built in 1969
located in a very remote location.I am experiencing considerable
flaking of the concrete primarily on the interior and in select sites
on the exterior. Can anyone offer any suggestions as to how to go
about repairing this problem. I am not the least bit concerned about
appearance but am very concerned about the effects any repairs may
impart upon my water supply.

Sounds like the tank was never given a proper water seal coat. You will
want something that bonds chemically with the concrete or perhaps an epoxy
paint.

Two companies that may be helpful furnishing the products you are looking
for are: Fox Industries in the Baltimore region
http://www.foxind.com/index.htm

and Sika USA http://www.sikaconstruction.com/ contact either or both and
ask for tech support. My experience with both companies over the past 30
yrs. has been on the positive side.
