How HydroBlox Work

HydroBlox: Steering Water with Precision

HydroBlox planks are strategically placed from a water-logged zone, leading all the way to a desired drainage area. Remarkably, the water navigates from one plank to another due to built-up water pressure. As a plank gets saturated, the pressure inside rises. This internal pressure efficiently moves the water from plank to plank without a slope, making it ideal even for level terrains.

The Fundamentals of Drainage Simplified

At its core, drainage hinges on a straightforward principle: water invariably seeks the easiest route. Given the density contrast between the surrounding soil and HydroBlox boards (which maintain a void space of 42%-46%), water naturally favors flowing through the HydroBlox. Essentially, these boards present a more welcoming pathway than the adjoining, dense soil.

The Unique HydroBlox Design

HydroBlox’s distinct “noodle” pattern offers multiple minute voids facilitating uninterrupted water flow. These gaps are precisely sized to block out silt and soil, ensuring the planks remain free from internal obstructions. This design choice ensures free-flowing water and guarantees long-term resistance to blockages.

Strength Beyond Traditional Pipelines

In terms of durability, HydroBlox stands out. Its inherent strength surpasses that of traditional pipes, ensuring longevity without the fear of collapsing. Plus, it eliminates the need for aggregates and geotextiles, positioning HydroBlox as an advanced underground water conduit.

Eco-Friendly Storm-Water Management

Whether you’re integrating HydroBlox with existing drainage systems or releasing purified water back into nature, its unique filtration and conveyance attributes make stormwater management seamless. By facilitating the return of clean water into our ecosystem, HydroBlox actively promotes the replenishment of natural water reserves.

Sustainability at the Forefront

Crafted from 100% recycled thermoplastics, HydroBlox is a testament to sustainable engineering. An impressive metric to consider: producing every 500 meters of HydroBlox involves reprocessing about 2.5 tonnes of recycled plastic. Furthermore, each tonne of HydroBlox manufactured saves approximately 2 tonnes of CO2 emissions, underscoring its environmental benefits.
