Aqua Dams

We import the Aquadam system from the USA. This system is ideal for diverting streams or for emergency management during flood events. It is a system that is quick to install and easy to disestablish when finished.

Aquadams are portable dams filled with onsite water that can be installed wherever needed to control, contain or divert water flow. Aquadams consist of two basic components; two water tight inner polyethylene tubes which contain the water and an outer “master tube” made of a heavy duty geo-textile woven polypropylene which holds the inner tubes in contact when filled. The outer and inner tubes combine to form an Aquadam.

The counter friction/hydraulic pressure between the inner tube and the outer tube, along with the mass and weight of the water, creates pressure and stabilizes the Aquadam, even when lateral water pressure is exerted against it.

Due to the inherent flexibility of the materials used in their construction. Aquadams will conform to most surfaces, providing an excellent seal and keeping water seepage to an absolute minimum.

Aquadams come in various height ranges from 300mm through to 5 metres. Standard lengths are 17 metres and 34 metres.
