Troy, MI has completed a manhole assessment study and identified several structures with barrel joint leaks and low frames. A typical reconstruction of manhole chimneys consists of loading a dump truck with masonry sand, bags of Portland cement and hauling a large cement mixer. This is accompanied by another dump truck hauling a mini excavator and concrete grade rings. Source 1 Environmental educated Troy on the benefits to using XSeal. By switching from mixing mortar to join the adjustment rings and castings to using XSeal, one crew can now triple their reconstruction time. The result is an air tight and water tight seal that will outlast mortar.
“XSeal is great. Before, we had to wait for the mortar to be mixed and wait for it to set up before we could backfill. Then we would double check the inside for cracking. Now we can rebuild chimneys no matter the weather conditions”
