Elevator Pit Waterproofing
One of the most common calls that we get is for sealing active water leaks in elevator pits. CGI Texas' unique hydrophic acrylic resin paired with our patented minimally invasive injection system, make elevator pits a perfect fit for CGI Texas. Since we are able to seal the elevator pit from the positive pressure side without excavation, we are able to provide a superior waterproofing solution at a substantial cost discount. Small holes are drilled to find water pockets and intrusion spots, then our patented injection pistol is used to inject our solution behind the wall or slab, creating a watertight membrane on the positive pressure side.
Don't let our name fool you! CGI Texas seals elevator pits all over the country.
CGI Texas has sealed hundreds of elevator pits and our process has been refined over 10 years.
Process and Results
- First the pit is drained and cleaned of any debris.
- After the pit has been dried we will then look for any signs of obvious water intrustion.
- 1" holes are drilled around the perimeter where water intrusion in occurring.
- Difgel HD 2.0 is injected through the pit to the posiive pressure side where it gels up the intruding water forming a watertight membrane.

Here you can see just how far our low viscous, acrylic resin can travel, since we inject under pressure.

After injections and ispections, we leave the customer with a dry pit.

was placed over the resin for a clean fnished look and to protect the resin.
