Hydraulic Cement for Leaky Basements

Using the right product for patching holes where water seeps in will save you a trip back with a wet vac and a sump pump.

There are two traits of hydraulic cement that make it ideal for fixing leaky foundations, especially around waste pipes as seen in this video.

First, this type of cement will cure under water, which means that you don't have to dry out the leak before stopping it.

Second, is that hydraulic cement expands as it cures, so it tightens up cracks and seals the gaps around pipes.
