Repairing Active Water Leaks
Featured Product: Leak Stopper
- Prepare the repair area by removing any unsound concrete, grease, oil, paint or any other materials that will inhibit bond.
- Use a wire brush as needed to scrape away any loose material.
- Dampen the repair area before applying Leak Stopper. This process will allow the repair material to retain its own moisture during the hydration process rather than being absorbed too quickly by the repair area.
- Holes or cracks should be opened to a minimum depth and width of 3/4” to allow for enough material to achieve the proper expansion and bond.
- Use clean potable water, clean mixing container and tools.
- Do not mix more than can be put into place within 1 - 2 minutes.
- Use 3.5 oz. of clean potable water per 1 lb. of material (3-parts powder to 1-part water).
- Mix material until a thick dough-like consistency is obtained. Do not to exceed 30 seconds of mixing.
- Hold Leak Stopper in GLOVED hand or trowel, work the material into a ball until it becomes slightly warm.
- Once the product is warm and has started to stiffen, force a large amount directly into opening and maintain constant pressure until final set (3-4 minutes).
- Overfill the hole and the surrounding area.
- Once the material has reached its initial hardening. Scrape off the excess material from the top using a trowel.
- Using a wet rag, remove any excess material so the patch is flush with the surface.

Calculated results will reflect how many bags are needed for Block and Brick.
Enter the number of bricks (8" x 2" x 4") or blocks (8" x 8" x16") in the box below that you plan to use for your project. The calculator will then tell you the number of bags you need based on the different size of bags we carry.
This calculator is based on a 3/8" mortar joint. All yields are approximate and do not include an allowance for waste, uneven subgrade or any other variations from the joint size and brick and block sizes noted above.
Results will change if form of measurement is updated.
