ASQUAL Draintube FT

Use

Ponds can be built close to the groundwater or on soil made up of organic materials likely to release gases when decomposing. Rising water, air and gases under the waterproofing layer of hydraulic structures such as ponds, generate underpressure likely to result in irreversible deformations of the geomembrane. Drainage under the waterproofing layer is therefore essential for the stability and durability of hydraulic structures.

DRAINTUBE® FT offers a solution adapted to the filtration, drainage of water and gases, as well as the mechanical protection of the geomembrane to avoid these deformations. This drainage system helps discharge water towards one draining trench while distributing residual pressure.

While the drainage capacity of DRAINTUBE® FT is similar to that of a layer of highly permeable drainage material, its cost is lower and it is easier to implement.

Benefits
