Architect Roberto Newbill, member of Oakland Garden Condo Residential Strata in Guatemala City, explains his experience with a persistent concrete leakage problem.
Mr. Newbill explains that 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 Crack 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.
