In Water Concrete Repair for Various Projects
Submerged concrete can be difficult to reach, with high water pressure and, at times, unpredictable weather making the job all the more difficult. The Aqua-Barrier® is an effective method for many different scenarios where in water concrete repair is needed. This method is especially effective for culvert or canal repair and installation, as well as concrete shoreline restoration.
Other Common Methods for Repairing Concrete Submerged in Water
Some of the most often-utilized underwater concrete repair methods include flexible paste epoxy, cementing, adhesives, and other types of cofferdam systems. While these methods may temporarily suspend the problem, they are not always permanent solutions. As well, they do not always rid the work area of water, in turn leaving you without the dry land necessary to continue to labor on safely.

- A more cost-effective solution, as the cofferdam can be installed and removed 3-5 times faster than the traditional version.
