TRX Compressed Swell Plug

Regular price $5.00 Sale

TRX Compressed Swell Plug - designed to be used by the Do-It-Yourself homeowner and commercial property maintenance staff. It is designed as a simple one time application to permanently stop 5/8" tie-rod hole leaks in poured concrete foundations. The unique patented design of the TRX is its two stage sealing capability. The patented design of the TRX is unique in its two stage sealing capability.

  • The first step allows for immediate water shut off due to the compression of the shaft as it is tightened in place. 
  • Once snug, the second stage of sealing begins when the blue shaft reacts with the presence of water, causing it to swell in place. This reaction creates a compressed fit for a permanent seal.

Minimum Order (combined amount of $25.00). Orders entered below $25.00 will not be processed.

WHEN NOT TO USE  The TRX Compressed Swell Plug is not designed to be used when the tie rod hole has a crack located through the hole, nor is it designed to be used when the tie rod hole is located within a honeycomb area of concrete; (where excessive aggregate has cured in a given area causing seepage through the aggregate). If the tie rod hole has been repaired before, then it must be drilled out with a 5/8" masonry bit prior to instillation. The TRX is not designed to be used on Snap-ties. Snap-ties are small metal bars in the concrete wall that have been broken off at construction time.  Sometimes this snap-tie forming method is used instead of conventional 5/8" tie reinforcement rods.

After opening the tie rod hole, flush the hole out with water prior to insertion of the TRX.
