Introducing a smarter way to build Pondless Waterfalls and wetland systems.

Aquascape's AquaBlox Water Matrix is designed to replace up to 90% of the gravel traditionally used in the reservoir of Pondless Waterfalls applications.

The AquaBlox Water Matrix can also be used to replace the lower layer of 4-6 inch boulders in the bottom of Snorkel Vault and Centipede Module Wetland filter applications.

* Over 3 times more water storage capacity than gravel The Water Matrix can hold 7.4 gallons of water per cubic foot. Gravel can hold approximately 2.2 gallons of water per cubic foot.

* Extra water storage capacity results in less routine maintenance topping reservoir to compensate for evaporation.

* Easier to clean and less prone to clogging than traditional gravel basins.

* Smaller Reservoirs! The ability to hold more water per cubic foot allows for smaller reservoirs.

* Less labor excavating the basin, as well as less labor moving the many tons of gravel for basin.

* The use of less liner and geotextile underlayment.

* Small (26.5" X 16" X 9.5")

* Large (26.5" X 16" X 17.5")

Question

How big do the rocks have to be so they don't fall in the Cubes?

Answer:

1 or larger. We recommend a 4-6 layer over them then river gravel can be spread.


Question:

How do you calculate the required water amount required for a stream (going for pondless) so that when it is off there is enough water to start and flow without completely draining basin?

Answer:

Take the Length X width of stream X depth X 7.48 to get the number of gallons in stream and then double that volume for the basin volume. Then take basin volume and divide it by 16 (small Aquabloxs ) or 32 (Large Aquabloxs)

20 stream 2 wide would be the following:

20x2=40 X.25 (depth)= 10 X 7.48 (Number of gallons in cubic foot)= 75 gallons. You want basin to have twice as much so that it can be turned off and have plenty to restart without overflowing.

So that would be 150 gallons for basin. That would be 9 small blocks or 4-5 large blocks
