Deep Pour Grout™
A centrifugal water pump pad was badly eroded and the pump plate became very loose. Severe vibration occurred and the anchor bolts became loose in the concrete. Over a period of time “chunks” of concrete broke away causing the plate to become very sloppy.
The loose concrete was removed using a surface grinder. All loose particles were blown away with high pressure air. The surface was then cleaned with a degreaser to remove all oil and grease. Fir strips were used to “dam” the edges of the pump pad. The pump base plate was balanced on the concrete surface. Then Deep Pour Grout was poured onto the pad and allowed to “self level”. After 16 hours the plate was secure in the epoxy and ready for the pump to be re-connected.
