Abstract The research reported was to develop new, more effective sealants for sewer line leaks (leaking joints, cracks and large holes). This purpose was achieved, and all equipments and materials investigated, tested or compared are presented, along with test results, supporting data, conclusions and recommendations. A wide range of candidate materials was surveyed, and weaknesses of rejected materials were noted. Meanwhile, specific properties of acceptable materials were ascertained and materials having these properties were identified. These latter materials were subjected to tests designed to demonstrate their effectiveness as sealants. Cost/effectiveness of the new sealant materials was compared with that of present sealant materials. It was concluded that infiltration adversely influences sewer system operating costs and effectiveness, and that leakage repair systems are limited in their effectiveness. Several sealants developed during the program were demonstrated to be able to effect strong, permanent repairs. No significant cost increase beyond that experience with present sealers was indicated. Some present sealant application equipment can be modified for use with the new materials, but new equipment designs are described and recommended. (Author)
