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.
