Technical Overview:

   AquaDams® are environmentally safe, stable water barriers used to contain, divert, and control the flow of water. The design consists of two polyethylene liners contained by a single woven geo-tech outer tube. When the two inner tubes are filled with water, the resulting pressure and mass create a stable, non-rolling wall of water.

   A single tube filled with water will not provide a stable wall or dam. As the water builds up on one side of the tube the pressure on the wall of the tube begins to increase.

Single Water Filled Tube

   As a result of the building pressure, the water is pushed from one side of the tube to the other side where the pressure remains low. As the water continues to move from one side to the other, the tube begins to roll.
