Notice the attachment collar rolled up at the rounded end of the 8'
AquaDam®. The rusty-looking metal that used to be under water is
the side of the old hotel pool, which is going to renovated to
meet the demands of the 21st century.
A space was left so that seepage water coming from underneath the
primary AquaDam® could be bled off. This was a terrible design defect.
After 7 days, the inside tube on the right-hand
side of the 13' AquaDam® ruptured.
After 8 hours the hole increased in size to the point that pumping
could not keep up.
This was our first attempt at an installing an AquaDam® of this size.
The hotel management knew that this water depth would be a first for
AquaDams®, and accepted the disaster very graciously, even agreeing
to pay part of the cost of trying to save the fish.
