Real world examples of how Kryton products solved your concrete waterproofing problems.
As a member of Oakland Garden Condo Residential Strata in Guatemala City, Architect Roberto Newbill explains his experience with a persistent concrete leakage problem.
The Oakland Garden Condos were built around 1993, and the in ground pool has experienced significant leakage problems throughout the past 12 years. This has proven especially problematic, as there are two levels of underground parking located beneath the pool. Since the leakage problems began, the strata as attempted to fix the problem five of six different times, without success.
Recently, Mr. Newbill heard of Krystol Technology and brought the idea of conducting a test of the product to the strata. They decided to remove the first four lines of tile inside the pool, and applied the Krystol Leak Repair System along with the surface-applied Krystol T1 and T2 system. A year after the application, the parking structure beneath the pool remains dry. The Krystol T1 and T2 Surface-Applied system was also applied to the pool deck for added protection against water penetration.
The Oakland Condominium Strata members are very happy with the results of the Krystol Technology, and they strongly recommend the products for concrete waterproofing and repairs.
Mr. Miranda supervised the USAC Plaza project performed by Vides Construction in Guatemala. He explains that the Plaza slab is 80×18 metres, and therefore a very big project for the University. After researching their options, the Kryton products introduced to the decision making team by Kryton distributor Duratop, appeared to be the best option to suit the projects need for permanent waterproofing.
Behind Mr. Miranda, you can see the water flooding the plaza. This water was pumped in, and sat for two weeks to both cure the product, and test for any leakage. As project supervisor, Mr. Miranda personally inspected the car park after these two weeks, and he is happy to report that the area is leak free.
