"Thanks for all your advice, tips & moral support concerning my project. It turned out beautiful. Quality people backing a quality product is the only way to go!" Joe
"Hi Paul, ---Thank you so much for all the info. Each time I spoke with you, I found you to be a very helpful, personable individual. You seemed genuinely interested in helping me get the right products and making sure that I know exactly the best way to apply it for optimum results. Sadly, in today’s business world, those are not common traits. It definitely was a pleasure to do business with you ( as cliche as that saying is.) I definitely will recommend to anyone who needs your products. Best wishes for continued success. Sincerely, Julie" (6/2019)
"OK...thanks for the personal touch. And for such an informative website. The navigation took me a while to grasp, but I really appreciate all the credible, helpful information you provide. This is my 3rd or 4th order over the years and I give you a A or A+ grade on all of it.
I'm a nit-picking former Polaris nuclear missile targeting and firing guy so you don't get a good grade from me unless you are on target!" -- Dave 7/14
A few points up-front:
6) If you have water seeping through a CINDER BLOCK concrete wall, that is another issue. Most basement walls are pour concrete but some are stacked concrete blocks. These stacked block walls are cement and fly ash and tend to have large spaces ("vugs") or openings on the surface. The size of these holes varies from manufacturer to manufacturer. In any event, these 'openings' make concrete blocks difficult to waterproof and seal. Thin products drain out and paints of all kinds never seem to completely fill and seal the holes. The best product to seal cinder block walls is our EPOXY CREAM product. It is a toothpaste like thickened epoxy gel that easily slides off a putty knife like a hot knife through butter. This makes it easy to fill cinder block vugs and give the block a smooth surface. Find EPOXY CREAM in our industrial catalog - CLICK HERE
OK - here we go:
TWO EXAMPLES OF MINERAL SALTS/CRYSTALS ON WALLS FROM WATER PASSING THROUGH THE WALLS - NOTE CONCRETE CRACK REPAIR ON LEFT PICTURE
NEW MINERAL GROWTH THAT 'POPPED' OFF THE CLEAR EPOXY SEALER
After cleaning the surface, the best attempt to fix this problem is our
Bio Vee Seal. This product is designed
to soak into the concrete and form its own crystals below the surface, thus ‘clogging' up the concrete and reducing
the ability of the water to move through the concrete. This is an easy and cheap, first attempt to fix the problem.
FRESH MINERAL SALTS/CRYSTALS THAT DEVELOPED THROUGH PINHOLES AND THIN SPOTS IN THE EPOXY COATING ON CONCRETE WALL
Even just one tiny pinhole left behind and the water will squirt out like a jet. The best plan is therefore 2 or 3 coats of the epoxy. It is also an option to use a thin or solvent thinned epoxy (Our ESP 155) as the first coat (as a primer or sealer) as this thinner first coat will probably "soak" in a bit and provide a stronger bond to the thicker top coat epoxy (as well as help prevent those nasty pinholes in the thicker coating).
CONCRETE CRACK REPAIR WITH THICK EPOXY
A coat or two usually stops the leak. After this first coat of epoxy has cured, the next move is to apply more epoxy with two layers of fiberglass cloth along the seam and on top of the first layer of epoxy (sort of like ‘taping' a drywall seam). There will be pinholes and ‘leaks' in the cloth/epoxy layer (especially in rough surface areas, corners, and at the ends/beginnings of the strips of fiberglass cloth). So, once the epoxy/cloth layer has cured, one more coating of the same epoxy is brushed over the epoxy/cloth layer. This usually does the trick, albeit, a 3 coat system.
FIXING THE CONCRETE FLOOR WALL SEAM WITH GRAY Corro Coat FC2100A EPOXY WITH FIBERGLASS CLOTH
Generally folks order the 1.5 gal kit of the Corro Coat fc 2100 A - a roll of the 4 inch wide fiberglass cloth - 1 1/2 gal unit of ESP 155 epoxy sealer and primer (not for sale in Calif.)
"You prepared me well. I would just say to have many rags, garbage bags and several sets of disposable gloves. Wear old clothes. Those items made it much easier. If you're in a crawl space, it's probably a good idea to wear a mask and cap.

Case Study / Customer Feedback / Customer comments and pictures 4/13
Paul -- "I had been fighting a hydro-static leak between my floor and foundation on the south wall of our basement that has a terrace garden on the exterior for about the last 5 or 6 years. I have applied several coats of concrete patch that were very ineffective.
The advice from the largest local “basement leak expert” was to cut our a catch basin, about 12 inches wide and four inches deep, the full length of the wall (about 25’), allow the water to leak through and then pump it out of the catch basin with a sump pump. That would have cost $3000-$4000. My philosophy was to keep the water out, not to invite it in and pump it out.
When I saw the ad on the internet for this product I thought that it might work, so I emailed Paul Oman and we exchanged thoughts and ideas. I purchased the smallest amount of the product that I could for $50 to try it out. Early in April I applied one coat (half of the product) and sat back during the rainy season to see what would happen. We had record rains in St. Louis this April and so-far-so-good; no leaks. I am convinced that it is a good product".
Photos before and after attached. All photos take after heavy rains occurred.
