Win/Win—Stop the Leaks, Start a Career

Avanti's field service was contacted to stop water leaking into a storm water system in Colorado and provide how-to training. The storm water system was less than three years old, but had multiple barrel joint leaks as well as leakage at the pipe penetrations into a vault. Every project is different – there is no ‘one grout fits all’ solution. So after careful consideration, AV-248-LV Flexseal LV, a low viscosity, flexible hydrophobic polyurethane grout was injected to seal the barrel joints.

Early in the morning, we were near the lift station we were going to train at and I noticed a sanitary manhole in the middle of the street that had noticeable depressions in the asphalt on one side. I made the comment - only as an observation - that groundwater infiltration and loss of fines was likely the cause for the depression in the street.

Coffee with Tony Conn—Equal Parts Confidence & Caffeine

Posted in Industry News

Every time I speak with Tony Conn - City of Naperville Collection and Pumping Supervisor -  my grout first beliefs are validated.  It was casual phone conversation and my coffee cup was full, but it was Tony that was energized, confident, and firm in his convictions about municipal grouting.
