CavityTech Systems Ltd were asked to put together a specification to repair the manhole catch pit that was suffering from leaks. From our inspection we were able to provide the client with a written report relating to issues found.
Our specification allowed to clean out the catch pit as far as possible. We then raked out and repaired any leaks and suspected leaks with Vandex Rapid 2 waterproof plugging compound. We then carefully applied Vandex Rapid M waterproof repair mortar to the catch pit in one coat to 10mm thick. Site was then cleared and left tidy.
We were able to provide a design and installation to solve the reported problems, whilst causing the minimum disruption to the Abbey and the many tourists present.
