How to build an Aquabox basin in 7 easy steps
14 June 2023
Aquabox was engineered for a fast and easy manual setup. Thanks to its snap-fit locking system and 10 kg weight, it can be installed even by inexperienced workers. Here is a beginner’s guide on building an Aquabox rainwater basin in 7 easy steps, based on our recent project in the coastal town of Punta Ala, Italy.
Dig a trench and level the soil. Line it with geotextile (for infiltration basins) and, if needed, geomembrane and 2nd layer of geotextile (for retention and reuse).
Aquabox is delivered stacked for easier transportation. Each pallet carries 80 half-elements or 40 modules.
Unpack the pallets and join the half-elements together to create Aquabox modules.
Assemble the basin by placing the modules and locking them together with red connectors.
Close the basin by placing sidewall and top grids.
Cover the basin with geotextile. Seal it with a geomembrane and 2nd layer of geotextile, if needed. Cover with soil.
Enjoy the great rainwater management from your new Aquabox basin.
