Re: Containment Area



John -

Taking a guess from 3,000 miles away, it sounds like the concrete floor
itself is cracking.  This action could be caused by:

	the foundation soils (swelling, settlement, freeze/thaw, etc.),

	excess loading above what the concrete was designed for, or

	deterioration of the concrete and reinforcing steel.  

If any of these factors are involved, then a structural repair should be
considered.  Repairing just the coatings will probably not be
satisfactory.
