STEP 2: Mix the Waterplug powder with enough water to create a putty-like consistency and form in to a ball large enough to plug the hole - this can and should be done while the leak is live i.e. water is flowing in.

STEP 3: Push the putty into the hole, the material expands as it sets instantly stopping running water, and hold in place while the material sets.  This step can either be done by hand or with a trowel.  NOTE: Hand and eye protection should be worn at all times when working with this product.
