Finalcrete is just the thing for rainwater cisterns in agricultural settings. Being familiar with mixing guidelines is helpful, with the mix ratio for parge generally being 1:3, allowing for either vertical or horizontal work to be applied and completed easily.

Rural residents who haul potable water from municipal water supply to store in their own country cisterns want to be sure that the needed repairs are fixed the first time and you want the same so you can move on to the next job. The same mix ratio for parge exists for any trowel flat work. Finalcrete also gives you an edge when applying in hot and damp conditions.

Either poured in place or prefabricated, these agricultural cisterns are prone to both cracking and leaking when placed in clay soil. Finalcrete doesn’t require primer, a bonding agent or binder application, but having the substrate wet helps the hydration process. This is a necessary factor to consider when applying anyPortlandbased cement product in hot conditions.

Steel and mortar composite construction usually include concrete and multiple layers of wire mesh for these rural cisterns and even though the stone and mason tanks are not as common as they once were, Finalcrete accommodates all these variations by accommodating widening cracks and the physical stress of the freeze thaw movement.

You can use regular repair tools with Finalcrete and it cleans up easily with water. Alter the trowel mix slightly by using a ratio 1:3.5 and then add ¼ part water, mix thoroughly and you’ll lengthen the pot life under hot climate conditions.
