AquaBlok® pond rehab application applied from a remote-controlled, belt-driven conveyor (often referred to as a “stoneslinger”). The ~1/4-acre residential pond was drained and dredged several years prior to remove excessive organic materialwhich had accumulated on the bottom. When the basin was refilled, it never held water as designed. All areas except for theswimming beach (undisturbed during the cleanout) were lined with AquaBlok through the standing water (depths of up to 8’).
AquaBlok® pond rehab application using a “stone slinger.” Note one person controlling radial belt and the second personfloating the newly applied (dry) product along the interior side slope to insure consistent material thickness. Slinger truckstypically have a 15-18 cubic yard capacity and can broadcast AquaBlok up to 90’ from the back bumper.
AquaBlok® pond rehab application from a remote-controlled, belt-driven conveyor (“stone slinger”). Note yellow lines floatingon water’s surface. These lines are staked at regular intervals forming a grid to serve as a visual guideline for the applicator.In this case, each 17x17’ square received one ton of product (achieving a 7-lb/SF average application rate).
An ~1/4-acre residential pond refilling following an AquaBlok® application. The pond was drained and dredged several yearsprior to the AquaBlok treatment to remove excessive organic material which had accumulated on the bottom. When the basinwas refilled after the “cleanout,” it never held water as designed. A localized leak could not be identified, so the pond owneropted to line the majority of the basin at a rate of 7-lbs/SF. The basin is now fully functional.
