This isn't a tool post per say, but I have a leaking concrete water trough, I am assuming it was done in 2 pours as a result I have a line all around the trough (8 Ft diameter) about 10 inches from the top that seeps water. Anybody have any ideas on what would work best to repair this? Thanks

In years past I have used tar to line these concrete tanks/cisterns. Now I would think they would be epoxy materials that would be better.

That's the ticket- and I'll bet you could get that funny little guy to come do it for you, if you just paid separate shipping and handling.

I have used this stuff with great results for over fifteen years .

Use a polyester fabric strip directly over the crack , coat the whole trough , you won't be disappointed .

This is Oz based but concrete is world wide.

We have an outfit called Mr Crystal which really knows their concrete tanks etc. A small bucket is expensive but well worth the how to booklet IMO.

Then you buy Xypex Concentrate which does the same thing at a lower price - that is used by pros to stop surface cracking on big slab pours.

http://www.xypexwaterproofing.com/products/concentrate.html

Both you paint on outside and it wicks into the crack and seals things up.

Following the Mr Crystal advice on getting rid of movement (as long as the reo is intact) we've taken a 10000 gallon tank from bogging a cow right beside it to minor dribbles

Your local concrete expert will likely be able to translate

There is a special paint out there, I can't recall the name, but I used to work for Kuesters hardware and they had a display where they painted a concrete block and put a small water fountain in it and it never leaked with that paint on it.

There is a paint style product called Dry-Lock sold and Fleet Farm and Menards around here that would do the job.

I repaired a cistern with hairline cracks with this stuff years ago. Seems to work.

we always got a bag of raw cement powder.. and grabbed hand fulls and rubbed in it to the inside.. underwater and all... the bigger the leak, the easier it is to seal.. very slight leaks took a lot more powder, rubbed in over a larger area to finally get a seal.

Gotta remember to take your boots off though.
