  1. Lake Spillway Leak Repaired with Polyurethane Injection

    Leave a Comment

    Water was leaking out of this lake because it was flowing under the spillway instead of over it.  Polyurethane grout injection was used to remedy the situation.  Holes were drilled on the face deep enough to reach the backside of the spillway.  Mechanical packers were then placed in the hole.  The installed packers are now an injection port to hook up to the grout pump, which pumps the polyurethane to the back side of the spillway.  The grout used was Hyperflex, a moisture activated polyurethane.  Once in contact with the water, it foams to fill the voids and seal the leak paths.  Hyperflex is NSF/ANSI/CAN 61 approved for contact with potable water and is manufactured by SealGuard, Inc.  The grouting was performed by Sub-Technical, Inc.

  2. SealGuard II Polyurethane Grout Injection to Stop Water

    Comments Off on SealGuard II Polyurethane Grout Injection to Stop Water

    The seam on this dam tunnel was actively leaking water.  SealGuard II, a dual component polyurethane grout, was injected into the leak path to seal the water flow.  With just a drill, a dual component caulking gun, and some SealGuard II, a water leak of up to 50 gallons per minute can be stopped.  SealGuard II is manufactured by SealGuard, Inc. and the grouting was performed by Sub-Technical, Inc.
