PREVENTING WATER PENETRATION IN BELOW-GRADE CONCRETE MASONRY WALLS - NCMA
A Beginner's Guide to Basement Pipe Penetrations
Description: Saturated soils, especially saturated clays, should generally not be used for backfill, since wet materials significantly increase the hydrostatic pressure on foundation walls. NCMA and the companies disseminating this technical information disclaim any and all responsibility and liability for the accuracy and the application of the information contained in this publication. It then creates a watertight seal that allows for pipe movement while making it more difficult for water to enter your basement. Sheet membranes and panels are less dependent on workmanship and surface preparation than coatings. Sometimes, they're not sealed at all!
