What does it say on the bucket?I have about 600 sf of below grade 12" solid filled reinforced CMU wall I need to waterproof. The owner bought some Masterseal 5000. He said that's what the contractor supply house recommended. Never used it before.
Any recommendations? Thanks in advance
fjn, That looks like a really good product. Looks expensive. ??This is what I use,I feel it is the best. http://www.armtec.com/en-ca/products-and-services/drainage-solutions-and-water-treatment/platon.aspx
I agree, which is why the dimple board has a good function os a bondbreak between the soil and the foundation. Frozen soil can grab onto a tarred foundation with no problemsWater management is more important than the membrane I think, but both are important.
The drain and backfill will handle all the ground water.
We are installing 4" and 6" drainage pipe surrounded by class A rock next to the bottom of the wall. Still need drainage board?
Its funny you mention that because the Architect has all the perimeter foundation drains and storm water drains running into the sump pit, which is located "inside" the building. Mostly 6" perforated dumping into a duplex sump pump pit. And, we're talking about an 8000 sf full basement with water collection from storm drains and foundation drains. But, the complex is going to have a huge backup generator.While on the subject of drainage,this may be helpful to elaborate on. The perforated pipe (sdr #35 not black "slinky") is best IMHO. By all means,run pipe to daylight if possible (no pumps to maintain or power outages to contend with)
If a pump and sump basin is needed,place them OUTSIDE. It makes no sense to place it in the interior of the building. Why invite the water inside only to figure out how to pump it back out ?
Not only that but the dimple board protects the waterproofing from being damaged by rocks during the backfilling.I agree, which is why the dimple board has a good function os a bondbreak between the soil and the foundation. Frozen soil can grab onto a tarred foundation with no problems
