Maintenance The guarantee for waterproofing
Would you buy a car if the tyre couldn’t be replaced in the case of a puncture? A waterproofing system that doesn’t permit maintenance is like a disposable car. Not only does the Drytech Tank allow you to carry out maintenance, but it can be done quickly and is non-invasive. Not only can you replace the tyre but you can do it while the car continues to move.
Setting aside metaphors, the need for maintenance of any waterproofing system is fundamental as well as underrated. Theoretically all systems work. In the real world, unexpected things occur which can however be easily foreseeable: from the human factor during laying, to common hitches during construction (backfill which rips a sheet or reinforcement which makes a hole in a membrane).
The Drytech Tank always allows waterproofing to be re-established by injecting DRYflex expanding resin from the underside of the structure. Since the Drytech Tank is a single structure, the cause and effect of any infiltrations can be verified in the same place, enabling accurate work to be carried out and results can be checked immediately by visual inspection. There is no requirement to block the structure.
For the same reason, Drytech maintenance systems are also used in the restoration of other types of waterproofing.
Many systems offer waterproofing for structures. However it is only practical, non-invasive maintenance which guarantees waterproofing over time.
