A 4' x 150' AquaDam® with one connection was installed to divert stream water through an irrigation channel.  
Lincoln, CA
The first AquaDam® was started up the bank at a point 4' higher than the stream bed to be crossed. Discharge hoses were inserted into the fill tubes, making sure that they extended past the black master tube, the start of the AquaDam®. The clear fill tubes are for coupling this AquaDam® to the closed end of another.

A head of water inside the AquaDam®, higher than that of the water pooling on the upstream side, must be maintained or the water will force the AquaDam® downstream. The water on the downstream side is dropping, creating a water head differential from one side of the AquaDam® to the other. This water pressure difference must be overcome throughout the installation process.
