Background/Objective: To find mixing liquefied sampling for crack long period therapy. Methods: Concrete volume of ratio 1:2:4 and w/c of 0.5 was scrupulously mixed with liquefied (hygienic and fermented locust beans water) after physicochemical test was carried out on the liquid samples besides concrete cubes and cylinders was casted and cure for 3, 7, 14, 21 and 28 days for concrete strength determination. Findings: It was initiate that for apiece of the concrete samplings cured for 3, 7, 14, 21 and 28 days, the samplings manufactured by means of fermented locust beans had the highest compressive, splitting tensile as well as flexural strength values, whereas the concrete prepared with drinkable water had the tiniest strengths for the Grade 20 concrete samplings formed. The actions of the bacteria in the fraternization water samplings comprising fermented locus beans, sidewise having the impending to hallmark cracks that cultivate inside the concrete, also augmented ensuing concrete strength properties. Application: This innovation can be applied during the concrete samplings production to induce self restorative, steered increased compressive, split-tensile as well as flexural concrete strengths.
