Due to the flexibility and installation process of the Hydrorock Aquifer Blocks, the system is ideal for situations which require minimal disruption as well as retrofit projects and projects which have restricted spaces. The blocks can accommodate existing infrastructure and immovable obstacles, going around corners and over/under and around pipes as required. In essence, the blocks can be installed anywhere a mini JCB can dig!
The Hydrorock Aquifer Blocks are able to absorb 94% of their volume, and when installed horizontally provide excellent drainage. Vertical installation promotes buffering and the gradual discharge of water into the surrounding soil, partly due to the filter cloth wrapping that acts as a membrane. This reduces water discharge, supplements the groundwater level in a natural way and relieves sewers.
