Waterproong is a process that is designed to prevent water from penetrating a structure. Typically waterproong is done in various layers and stages to create multiple barriers so that water cannot penetrate the structure. A combination of such stages is referred to as creating a Building Envelope. However, often not enough importance is given to this very crucial area while constructing new structures. Over reliance on conventional and outdated systems, low awareness about modern waterproong systems and lack of trained expertise for application are some of the reasons for the same. Heres where Dr. Fixit can help you to get the best waterproong solutions for your new constructions. Dr. Fixit is Indias leading brand in

Surface Preparation For horizontal application, the new concrete layer must be smooth and level and to be left to mature for at least 72 hours. Before laying the waterproong membrane, the surface must be cleaned of any waste. All surface imperfections, protrusions, structurally unsound and loose concrete must be removed and repaired with polymer modied mortar using Dr. Fixit Pidicrete URP. Where the separate concrete layers are poured at different levels, the gaps must be lled and smoothed, in order to obtain a comparatively smooth surface. When cleaning the substrate, any pollutants, such as chemicals, curing agents etc., which may affect the membrane adhesion, must be removed. Installation of Dr. Fixit Flexshield membrane Whenever Dr. Fixit Flexshield membrane is being installed, it is highly recommended that the membrane shall be laid at the position and allowed to relax for at least 45 minutes. This will help releasing the tensions in the membrane. Always use geotextile 250 gsm for protection of the waterproong membrane, loose laid on the concrete substrate. On the horizontal sections the Dr. Fixit Flexshield membrane is loose laid between two layers of geotextile 120 gsm. The adjoining membrane sheets are seemed using a splice tape, as the overlapping must be at least 150 mm wide. A 50 mm protective cementsand screed is laid on the installed horizontal sections of waterproong system. Its purpose is to protect the waterproong system from damages, during the installation of the supporting structure (reinforcing, concrete casting, vibrations etc.) In the vertical sections, the membrane may be fully adhered or loose laid using mechanical fastening at the upper end. The walls must be dry and smooth, without any lumps, sharp edges and protruding reinforcement. Aluminum ashings should be used for the mechanical fastening, sealed with Dr. Fixit Silicon Sealant at the upper end. In case of full bonding the membrane to vertical surfaces, these must be clean and dry. The bonding adhesive is applied both to the membrane and to the substrate in uniform and smooth lms; so that a continuous coverage of both surfaces can be obtained (membrane and substrate). The adhesive is left to cure, and then the membrane with the applied adhesive is rolled onto the adhesive covered substrate, avoiding the formation of folds and creases. The adjoining membrane sheets must overlap by approximately 150 mm. The underground waterproong system is nished at 500 mm above the level of the high soil waters. The protective layer of geotextile 500 gsm is spot-adhered to the vertical Dr. Fixit Flexshield membrane, using bonding adhesive.

It cannot be sprayed through any other type of commonly available sprayers. Extend the Dr. Fixit Extensa coating up to the top and covering the overow concrete channels all around the periphery of the pool. As per the plans drawn up by the structural engineer, lay the steel cage accordingly. Reinforcing steel must be installed after the plumbing is complete. The steel is installed in a grid pattern following the requirements of the engineering calculations. Steel bar size can range from 3/8 diameter to 3/4 diameter depending on the requirements. Concrete spacers ensure the steel is not against the wall or the oor of the pool. This system allows shotcrete to be evenly distributed under and above the steel. A rule of thumb to remember when designing swimming pools is to minimize the number of separation joints between concrete sections in the pool! Finish the shotcrete area with wooden oat. After curing and drying make angle llets if necessary, all around the periphery of the pool wall with polymer modied mortar prepared with Dr. Fixit Pidicrete URP. Now the shell of the swimming pool is ready to receive further waterproong system. Apply 1 coat of Dr. Fixit Fastex maintaining the saturated surface dry condition.

RemediAl wAterprOOfing fOr A leAKing bAsement

DR. FIXIT PU FOAM InJECTIOn And DR. FIXIT PLAIn InJECTIOn

Methodology
Preliminary Preparation Assess the problem area & suitably mark the spots for drilling grouting holes. If the intensity of running water is high & cannot be controlled, then divert the ow of water using a PVC pipe at the spot of leak. For heavy dripping, mark the spots in a grid pattern 150 mm centre-centre or in case of spot dripping drill at the point of leakage at an angle of 45o to the plane of grouting. Drill diameter for a hole should be corresponding to the packers in use (generally 16 mm - 20 mm) & depth of the hole drilled to be 100 mm deep or generally half the thickness of the substrate. Fix alloy packers (non-return type) of dimension 14 mm x 80 mm with a suitable putty. Allow the putty to cure for 24 hrs prior to commencing the injection grouting process. Application Mix base & hardener in the specied proportions: Dr. Fixit PU Foam Injection - 10 parts of base : 1 part of hardener The mixing to be carried out in a completely dry container using a stirrer. After rinsing the pump using a PU Cleaner, ll the PU mixture into the pumping container & initiate pumping on a low pressure & gradually build up the pumping pressure suitably Stop pumping if back pressure is sensed or if the grout has oozed out of the adjoining hole. PU foam injection oozes out of the grouting hole & hardens primarily in 10-15 minutes. Complete curing of the PU foam will happen over a period of 24 hrs. Mix base & hardener in the specied proportions: Dr. Fixit PU Plain Injection - (2 parts of base: 1 part of hardener) Dr. Fixit PU Plain Injection, resin injection to be pumped once the PU foam has set in a similar manner as that of foam. This will act as a secondary injection thus completely sealing the leaking cavity. Cut off the extended portion of the packer & seal the surface with suitable putty. Choice of PU injection grout, Foam/Plain depends on the condition of the substrate & severity of leakage Injection grouting for dampness using Pagel ZS 10 Drill grouting holes at an angle of 45 on the wall adjacent to the area of leakage at a spacing of 500 mm centre to centre or less in a grid pattern. Fix PVC or MS nozzles (packers) in the grouting holes using Dr. Fixit Instant Leak Plug or epoxy putty. Allow the nozzle to set for 24 hrs. Add water at a ratio of 0.34-0.45 to prepacked cementitious grout Pagel ZS 10 mix to a uniform consistency using a mixing paddle. Using a grouting pump, inject Pagel ZS 10 through the nozzle at required pressure. Grouting should commence from the lowest possible level & proceed upwards along the grid with the pumping pressure increased gradually.

Methodology
Surface Preparation Remove Paint up to bare masonry surface from affected area by wire-brushing or other suitable means. Wipe surface with wet cloth to remove loose particles from Cement Plaster. Fixing of nozzles Drill holes with 12 - 15 mm bit at 45 angle, penetrating width of the wall. Starting from skirting level with 300 mm distance between each hole horizontally and 300 mm to 400 mm vertically from ground level, from centre to centre. A zigzag pattern to be formed to cover the entire area to be injected for effective result. Fix the perforated PVC nozzles and seal them secure with Dr Fixit Instant Leak Plug and allow to set for one day before starting work. Use grouting pump with minimum 2 Bar (2 kg / cm2) pressure capacity to pump the Dr Fixit Dampfree in wall. Dilution of Dr. Fixit Dampfree depends upon the severity of problem, from 1 :1 to 1:5 with clean water. Injecting Dr. Fixit Dampfree Inject diluted Dr. Fixit Dampfree through the nozzles till the back pressure is felt. Move to next nozzle and complete the process by injecting through all xed nozzles in the affected area. Then cut off the nozzles at the surface level and seal the holes using PMM modied with Dr. Fixit Pidicrete URP. Level the surface with plaster and allow the surface to dry completely before proceeding for painting.
