Aqua-Barrier® Featured on Pile Buck

We were thrilled to be featured in an interview with Pile Buck, a leading voice in the construction and engineering industry. In this insightful conversation, Aqua-Barrier shared our innovative approach to water management and our commitment to providing reliable solutions for diverse projects. We invite you to dive into the article to learn more about our journey, the challenges we’ve overcome, and the future of Aqua-Barrier®.

Pile Buck’s interview with Aqua-Barrier, a premier provider of dewatering solutions and flood protection.

PB: What is the Aqua-Barrier cofferdam?

AB: The Aqua-Barrier cofferdam is an inflated, water-filled barrier that is essential for dewatering construction sites or restricting flood water. It is a single tube device with a unique inner restraint stabilizing system required for stability.

PB: What’s it made of?

AB: Aqua-Barriers are made of a specialized scrim-reinforced PVC material that makes them extremely durable thus allowing for high reusability.

PB: How does it compare to sandbags or sheet piling?

AB: Its unique internal baffle system ensures a stable product that is environmentally safe to use while outperforming traditional methods like sandbags and sheet piling. Also, the Aqua-Barrier can be reused and repurposed for any application.

PB: Why do you believe that Aqua-Barrier is the best dewatering solution?

AB: If you’re in need of a dry worksite, having a way to divert water is necessary. Unlike conventional cofferdam methods, the Aqua-Barrier can be installed 3-5x faster with little to no environmental impact and site restoration costs.

PB: How much water depth can an Aqua-Barrier control?

AB: Due to varying conditions, there is no simple answer to this question. However, by rule of thumb, our largest barrier will control up to six feet of water and sediment combined.

PB: What about freeboard?

AB: Each size needs to have a minimum of 25% freeboard.

PB: Why is 25% freeboard needed?

AB: Once a minimum of at least 25% freeboard is acquired, the Aqua-Barrier will begin to stabilize. Freeboard requirements may increase if the barrier is exposed to high water velocities (3 feet or more per second), slick soil conditions, or other unplanned hydrostatic conditions.

PB: How does the Aqua-Barrier cofferdam work?

AB: Three components interact together to stabilize – surface friction, freeboard, and the baffle system. In addition to the unique internal baffle system, Aqua-Barrier inflatable cofferdams are specially engineered to safely divert water from work areas to create a dry space.

PB: How are Aqua-Barriers typically used?

AB: Aqua-Barrier water-inflated dams are used to control invasive water in floodwater situations. They are also a means of water management to provide access to underwater areas for construction and maintenance operations.
