Leak Detection

Once water enters a crack, it is usually only a matter of time before the water leads to oxidization of the rebar/reinforcing steel. Concrete steps can crack and break up over time. Thermal changes and exposure to rain and driving wind can lead to water...

Water leaking into the basement after heavy rain is a common occurrence. Water always finds a way, so basement waterproofing and adequate drainage are especially needed in cases where groundwater is likely to build up in the soil and cause a rise in the water...

For a flat roof to function properly and not leak, the surface water needs to be discharged quickly without ponding or stagnation. Water ponding on a flat roof is one of the main causes of waterproofing membrane deterioration because most membranes such as acrylic membranes...

The placement and the sealing of concrete joints are both very important aspects of construction to ensure that the concrete slabs remain intact and structurally sound. Improper filling and/or sealing of joints by using incorrect material, inadequate filler depth and incorrect ratio of sealant, are just...

The Waterstop Solutions NSW team in Sydney recently provided an effective and durable solution to a leaking concrete bridge slab from which the occupied area underneath suffered water ingress during rainfall. Water was leaking through shrinkage cracks from the above-mentioned concrete bridge slab, into the gift...

Our Waterstop Solutions team of leak sealing technicians recently completed leak sealing works of a car bay, showing signs of water ingress through the wall-floor joint. Wall-floor joints in infill slabs often act as leakage points. This can cost-effectively be remediated with targeted high-pressure injection into the joints and cracks to create...

Times of drought - All water utilities across Australia struggle with increased population growth and extended periods of low rainfall. The Millennium Drought has caused challenges for all Australian urban water supplies. The levels in major east coast storages have diminished to the lowest levels in...

Consequences of water ingress to the lift pit. Water in the lift pit can lead to Health & Safety issues and costly lift break down. Any water in the lift pit can affect the lift mechanism and electrical systems, which may lead to the lift breaking down....

What do we mean by subsurface drainage? Why is it important and how do we fix it? Advantages of reliable and durable subsurface drainage. Facilitates the evacuation of water. Avoids pooling of water and saturation of tiling or topping screeds. Reduces moisture-related distress. Provides aeration to the building elements. Aids in...

A potentially advantageous proposal put to Waterstop Solutions recently highlights a major failing in the construction industry, where waterproofing work is severely undervalued, often with costly ramifications for all stakeholders....
