HydroBlox installations take 1/4 the time and do not require all the other materials and equipment used for old technology systems.
HydroBlox is the easiest way to end a swampy, muddy yard. Why tear up a yard with heavy equipment and gravel for a french drain that will fail within one to seven years?
HydroBlox installations take one quarter of the time and does not require aggregate, filter cloth and expensive excavation.
The typical installation involves digging a trench 2-4 inches wide and approximately 12” deep from where you have water to the area that can accept the water. Hydroblox is inserted into the trench. Each plank needs to touch the other for water to be conveyed from one to the next. To insure the boards stay in place after installation, it is recommended that they are overlapped and/or screwed together with a stainless steel screw. There will be at least 3" of cover once installed. However, HydroBlox must be backfilled and top filled with GOOD yard soil.
Do NOT backfill with:
- Clay soil
- Gravel (unless using HydroBlox in a gravity fed system)
- Gravelly soil (unless using in a gravity fed system)
