CAN'T SAY I HAVE EVER HEARD OF THAT .WHAT I USUALLY DO IS DRILL HOLES AT THE END OF THE CRACKS TO TRY TO RELIEVE SOME OF THE PRESSURE THEN CUT INTO THE CRACK WITH A CONCRETE SAW TO OPEN IT UP SOME .DON'T CUT DOWN THRU THE TANK JUST A HALF AN INCH OR SO .THEN PATCH WITH A COMMERCIAL PATCH OR WHITE PORTLAND MIXED WITH MARBLE DUST.OPENING UP THE CRACK ALLOWS MORE PATCH TO GET A BITE. IF YOU'VE NEVER USED SOMETHING LIKE A RESCUE SAW WITH A CONCRETE BLADE YOU MAY WANT TO PAY SOMEONE FOR THIS JOB.NO MATTER WHO DOES IT THERE ARE NO GARANTEES A CRACK MEANS THE POOL IS SETTLING AND ONE PART OF THE POOL IS MOVING AND THE OTHER IS NOT.ADDRESS ANY DRAINAGE PROBLEMS IN THE AREA AS THEY WILL JUST ADD TO THE PROBLEM

The crack can also be injected with epoxy, which makes for a very solid repair.

Because the steel reinforces the concrete helping to keep it from cracking all the way through. We know that concrete will eventually crack so we use steel to help it retain it's intended shape and function. If the steel corrodes to a point of weakness the concrete structure is also weakened.

Ants do not eat through concrete. They may damage the concrete over time from getting into the cracks, but they do not eat it.

Nothing happens. A hole is drilled through the joist and the wire is pulled through it.

It depends on the concrete and the type of radiation. If the concrete is feet thick, then it should only pass through the very surface and stop dead in it's tracks mid-way through the concrete. Recap: Yes, but if the concrete is long/wide enough, it will not pass through completely.

When the well is drilled, it is dug or drilled through the water-sand, and as the water flows into the well from the sand, it is cleaned by the sand, which acts as a filter.

Steel reinforced concrete is concrete with rods of steel running through it.

it is used for drinking water supply through drilled boreholes

One method to fasten timber to a concrete wall: You will need: * a hammer drill * a masonry bit * a timber bit * a pencil or marker * concrete fasteners: these could be expanding bolts that will grip the sides of the hole drilled into the concrete as they are tightened; bolts set into epoxy resin in the drilled hole in the concrete; or screws tightened into plugs hammered into holes drilled in the concrete * a plumb line or level * measuring tape or ruler # Measure the required location of the timber on the wall # Check with plumb line or level # Mark the location # Mark and drill with the timber bit at least two holes for fasteners (the number required will depend on the load to be carried and the size of the timber) in the timber # Locate the timber on the wall and mark the corresponding locations on the concrete through the holes in the timber # At these locations drill into the concrete with a hammer drill and masonry bit the correct depth and diameter for the fasteners you have # clear all dust and residue from the holes # Attach the timber using the fasteners. Note builders epoxy sets very quickly Timber should be separated from concrete by a moisture barrier such as damp proof course, plastic membrane etc to prevent any condensation on the concrete causing moisture buildup and rot in the timber

Humans have never drilled past the crust into the mantle. We have, however, seen the mantle through "hot spots" like volcanoes where the mantle is closer to the surface.

no they only eat through wood

Not unless the light is very strong and the concrete is quite thin.

One use is to drill through tile without cracking it.

Sunglasses are a concrete noun- you can touch them. They are, of course, not made out of concrete. They would be very hard to see through. And rather heavy.

It is very difficult to chew the concrete by the mouse. In storage godowns, concrete flooring is recommended to get rid from the menace of rats.

In the frame, or the body? In the case of the frame (or even the body), I'd consider they possibly had additional electrical items installed, and drilled the holes to run the wiring through.

Concrete is made up of water, sand, cement and ballast. The process through which concrete is made is known as hydration which allows it to harden.

User Avatar

Break away the concrete until you find the leaking area then repair. Re fill with new concrete.

User Avatar

In a sense, it can. The concrete does not melt. The cement in it gives up its waters of hydration and turns to dust. At this point molten metals can pass through the dust and stone of the concrete. This results from a meltdown. A number of meltdowns have happened, but molten core going through the concrete has not so far. There is a link attached to the Wikipedia article on nuclear meltdown.

yes sound can travel through concrete and infact echos and becomes louder for the person hearing it

This depends on the type of acid.To put this simply: yes, there are certain acids which can dissolve concrete.

User Avatar

the hole was a dead end hole you drilled all the way thru and into the water jacket. depending on the model of head you just made sure you get to buy another and replace the one you drilled. Next time go to a mechanic that knows what they are doing.

Yes it will eat through the finish
