I have had need to seal up a few places like that in basements where the conduits came in and had a potential leak risk. On occasion I would use a Sika product, 2c-sl is the name Sika give it. A 2 part, self leveling, pourable material that can be painted on. I even made a form and poured it into that to ensure it saturated the crevices, since it was well ...

I have water jet drilled in the past using Sch 40 PVC pipe. It works pretty good except that water has to flow back along the pipe as you push it in. This ends up making a much larger hole than you may think from first consideration. If the hole gets close to the concrete or has to go under a foundation you can cause a serious loss of under support for the ...

I am not saying there is no way you can do this, but there is basically no way. It would not be worth the time or effort and quite possibly you could spend a lot of time and effort and accomplish nothing. Going across a double driveway from experience is super iffy and you are adding at least another 10 feet. I don't see how you are going to keep adequate ...

Probably won't make any noticeable difference. Normally the bottom of the water tank portion is insulated if electric, and not remotely in contact with the floor if fuel-fired (there's a burner between the bottom of the tank and the floor, and a substantial amount of space taken up by the burner assembly.) I'd save the idea until you were replacing the ...

Epoxy a bunch of bricks and/or pressure treated 2x4s to the driveway. The climate is super-dry, and because of the pitch of your driveway and the amount of water on it, you only really need to contain about a 1/2' high wall of water, and it doesn't matter if it leaks a bit as long as most of the water is directed down the drain. For the truly cheap, laying ...

You could offer to install a trenchdrain into your neighbours sand. depending on your runoff, that should solve the problem. unless you want to go with the above solution and build a mound, which may or may not be a better solution depending on the way the water runs, i.e. you dont really want the water to pool on your side.

When I come up against this issue when laying floating floors I grind down the higher area. I use my 5" angle grinder and a grinder like this: turbo grinding cup for granite You will generate ALOT of concrete dust. I sometimes cut out a half circle in a 5 gal bucket so I can set it over the angle grinder about half way up the handle. In the other side I ...

..Your driveway would be the cracked concrete slab to the left, I assume? If the picture is not misleading, there appears to be some slope towards the street. If so, rent a concrete saw or buy a concrete blade for a saw you own (but unless you own a water-cooled saw, a rental saw that is water-cooled will generally do a better job, faster) and cut a bunch ...

You can take a 2x4 lay it next to the stop, with the 2" side facing the ceiling. Take a sledge hammer and hit the 2x4 gently, to see if it will separate from the ground. You might have to try all sides of the stop to dislodge it. The possible reason the water isn't seeping out is it is going through the concrete slab to ground. Once the stop comes ...
