We used 2x4s stakes every 4 feet with braces tto the ground to hpld that form in place.
Then, call a plumber and a water damage restoration service immediately to avoud further damage.
If you don't be patient and give enough time for the adhesive
to set, sanding will result in the removal of the newly restored blocks.
