Signs of Seawall Distress
Do you own or manage lakefront property? If so, you may have issues with your seawalls. Check for the following danger signs:
- Settled soil near the wall (a sign of water leaking through the wall and eroding the soil on the land side).
- Soil deposits near the seams on the waterside of the wall (a sign of water leaks bringing soil through the seams into the lake).
- Visible rust-colored cracks or stains in the wall (a sign of water leaking through cracks in the wall and rusting the rebar inside).
SW-RP1 Seawall Repair
High-strength SW-RP1 repair material can be injected through pipes directly into voids and loose soil around your distressed seawall. Seawall Repair Network contractors use material that reacts with moisture in the ground and expands to fill voids while also permeating the soil to form a solid, strong, watertight mass.
Since SW-RP1 is impermeable to water once in place, the likelihood of future erosion is vastly diminished versus refilling the void with other material. This technology has one of the strongest histories of success in the field.
Efficient seawall repair with this material prevents the need for remediation processes that can be harmful to the environment, such as a complete wall replacement or the excavating of all loose soil. SW-RP1 is approved for contact with drinking water once cured in place. So you don’t have to worry any long-term negative environmental impact.
