Water and Wastewater

Increase the life-cycle of your structure.

The extensive network of water and wastewater treatment requires structures that are able to successfully contain liquids for several decades while needing little repair work and downtime over the life of the structure.  Concrete is the most common material of choice for many water and wastewater structures.  However, concrete shrinkage cracks create obstacles to a successful structure.  A new water/wastewater structure can face difficulties passing the required leak test and may require expensive divers, inspections and crack-injections.  This not only increases the cost of construction, but can also extend project timelines, leading to delays and reduced owner/taxpayer satisfaction.  Decades of crack repair and maintenance represent a significant cost burden to the owner and headaches with taking a structure out of service while being repaired. Ultimately, the life-cycle of the structure is compromised.  Concrete that should have lasted 50-100 years is being replaced after just 2-3 decades.


The costly cycle of shrinkage cracks, repair, maintenance and deterioration can be significantly improved by the use of PREVent-C.  By reducing, or even eliminating shrinkage cracks, projects can be completed on-time, repairs are reduced, and lifecycle is greatly extended.  PREVent-C can be incorporated into the concrete for all types of water/wastewater structures, including reservoirs, primary and secondary treatment, clarifiers, aeration tanks, and digesters.  PREVent-C is one of the only shrinkage reducers that is NSF-61 certified for use in potable water applications to make regulatory compliance easier.
