(I am a professional pool service provider) Check with a reputable leak detection service in your area. (Most leak detection services also repair the leaks they detect). I've heard of this being done using dyes, cameras and sealants, but have no first hand experience. Beware: I've heard it can be costly, but usually cheaper the replacing your pool deck.
It's main use is to give concrete strength. A web of rebar is built in the form and concrete poured around it. This keeps the concrete from breaking apart.
If its from a height try a bin bag as a parachute and cotton wool taped around it to cushion it. I did this at school once and it landed perfectly.
Wrap it around 6 times with bubble wrap. The egg drop experiment is a standard science engineering project. The idea is to build a container for the egg out of simple materials and drop the egg from a determined height. This container is meant to protect the egg from breaking. the easy way :: if you hold the egg slightly above 6' it will fall 6' without breaking ..its the last little bit that does all the damage
Breaking Benjamin has been around since 1998.
Bust out the concrete, fix the pipe and pour new concrete. No way around it.
ensure concrete bonding around the reinforcing steel
Concrete poured around a foundation.
It weighs around 1500 kg/cum. and solid concrete blocks weigh around 1800 kg/cum minimum.
that could be around 18000 kilograms.
Concrete gives good strength to the structure, it is fire resistant and has life around 80 years.
It certainly can if the concrete becomes too waterlogged.
