An Introduction to Waterstop
Concrete is a great building material for structures that retain water and other fluids. It can be made fluid-proof and strong, has a very long lifespan, and can be fairly easily manufactured. However, these types of concrete structures will not function without fluid-proof joints or waterstop. This course looks at the manufacturing, history, properties, and types of waterstop products available, selection for various conditions, and proper installation techniques.
