HOW IT WORKS
The short version:
HydroBlox moves water from where you do not want the water to where you do want the water.
HydroBlox planks are installed in a wet area and continued on to a dry area. The water moves from plank to plank by water pressure. As one plank fills up with water, it is pushed to the next plank by water pressure. This allows you to install HydroBlox in a level area. No need for any downward installation.
Water also follows the path of least resistance. The planks offer the path of least resistance. The irregular pattern which makes up the HydroBlox plank provides small spaces inside the board for the water to pass through. This weave is tight enough that will not allow silt or soil inside the plank, but will allow the water to flow freely. This will also prevent any clogging.
HydroBlox is much stronger than pipe and will not crush over time. Unlike pipe, NO aggregate and geotextile are required. HydroBlox truly is an underground gutter system.
