fluming AquaDam

Most common question - Can you FLUME  with a SpeedyDam? YES... it's straight forward but call us to discuss.

1.   What if my SpeedyDamis longer than required for the job? 
No problem! Excess length is simply elevated and secured in place (water doesn't flow up hill!).

2.   What water pumps should I use?
Most SpeedyDam operators use a pair of 3inch / 75cm gasoline centrifugal water pumps but almost any water pump, fire hydrant will be fine. Water pumps larger than 4 inches are not recommended. A 3 inch/75 mm pump flow splitter (available as an optional extra) will allow a single 3 inch / 75mm pump to be used.

3.   Wha water depth will a SpeedyDam control?
Up to 75cm. Installation on very slippery surfaces or into fast moving water may affect performance.

4.   Can I make a two or a three sided temporary dam?
Two sided dams are possible with a Speedy 15 unit but typically you'll need a longer AquaDam for three sided installations. They are available in a large range of lengths and sizes (MCD - max water depth). Please call or email for pricing +44 (0) 1793 251700.

5.   SpeedyDam removal?
Most operators just lower the fill end of the dam into the water course and allow the water to drain out by gravity. Once this is complete the closed end of the dam is elevated to drain out any remaining water. 

6.   Can the dams be used in flowing water?
Yes

7.   What water pump couplings are required? 
None required! Pump discharge hoses are simply inserted into the open end of the dam.

8.   Are SpeedyDams easily damaged
Our dams are very robust and are manufactured from a super strong woven material. Puncture and tear resistance are exceptionally high.

9.  What ground preparation is required? 
Usually very little beyond clearing for access. The dams can be installed on very uneven ground and mud. However, as with any temporary dam, debris which will allow water beneath the dam (underbridging) and behind the dam should be removed to give the best possible seal. Water filled cofferdams such as the Speedy and AquaDam ranges typically to sit on top of silt with minimal penetration.

10.  Can a SpeedyDam  be over topped
No, the dam will wash out before the water flows over the top of the dam.

11.  What maintenance is required? 
SpeedyDams  used in temporary works applications do not require maintenance whilst in storage. Deployed SpeedyDams  may need periodic top up. Temporary dams used for emergency response applications such as flood protection should be periodically inspected for damage.

12.  Are SpeedyDams recycleable
Yes - over 99% of a SpeedyDam can be recycled.

13.  How wide is a SpeedyDam
Installed width of a SpeedyDam  is approximately 2.1m.

14.  What are the delivery dimensions of a SpeedyDam
For all three models roll length is approximately 120cm, roll diameter is approximately 35cm for the Speedy 5 model; 50cm & 60cm for the Speedy 10 & 15  respectively.

15.  What's included in the price?
Your AquaDam, user guide, online quickstart video, Generic Method Statement and Generic Risk Assessment and of course, after sales support.
