Not just a drainage solution, Hydraway offers a superior methane venting strategy to protect investments in lagoons and other sites.
Methane and other gases can cause severe damage to liners underneath lagoons, landfills, and other infrastructure, but where does it come from? As organic matter such as dead plants and animals decays, bacteria release a mixture of carbon dioxide and methane. These byproducts of the decomposition process are unavoidable.
When this gas is trapped beneath a liner, it can build up and cause significant damage. Hydraway has solved that problem with our Hydravent methane venting system. The superiority of our Hydraway 2000 flat drain system can be applied for this purpose to protect your investment and increase the lifespan of your lagoon.
Hydravent offers superior compressive strength over other venting solutions. With the entire weight of the water in a lagoon or trash in a landfill pressing down, it is possible for other systems to become less effective, opening the door to potential damage. For this reason, Hydravent is also used under the LA tunnel system beneath the city.
Manmade lagoons can be some of the most beautiful parts of commercial and residential landscaping, and they can also be some of the most costly pieces of infrastructure to maintain. Particularly if repairs are required to the liner, the responsible party may have quite a mess on their hands.
Gas buildup under a lagoon liner is an expensive maintenance disaster waiting to happen. Decaying organic matter underneath your lagoon can be counted on to produce methane and other gases, but fortunately, there is an effective venting solution. Hydravent allows these gases to pass beyond your liner without letting water escape.
Our system also resists clogging from the dirt, silt, and organic matter that can be found at the bottom of a lagoon. This helps ensure the system functions indefinitely. All Hydraway systems boast a zero-percent failure rate when properly installed, offering confidence and peace of mind.
According to the EPA, landfill gases (LFGs) are the third-largest source of methane emissions in the United States. Generated in the same way as methane and other gases under lagoons, it is easy to imagine even more methane being generated by a landfill. Fortunately, methane can be used as a source of renewable energy.
Hydravent ensures that these gases are not trapped under the liners beneath landfills while not allowing toxins to seep into the groundwater and affect the ecosystem. After all, that’s the purpose of a landfill liner, and a two-way vent would not have the intended effect.
Once the liner is laid down and covered with waste, maintenance is extraordinarily difficult if not nearly impossible. No Hydraway system has ever failed due to a manufacturers’ defect, and that includes Hydravent.
For residential applications, venting may be the exact opposite approach you need to take. Damp crawl spaces and basements, for example, can be breeding grounds for foul odors or even dangerous levels of mold.
Hydraliner offers a barrier between livable or working areas and the bare ground or moisture-prone surfaces. Impenetrable to water vapor, mold, and other unwanted substances, Hydraliner is capable of transforming crawl spaces and similar areas into something more usable and attractive.
Hydravent is the only methane venting solution on the market today that has a reputation for such high success rates (zero failures when properly installed) and is backed by superior technical specifications.
Manmade lagoons and other types of infrastructure are hefty investments that should last years or even decades. To ensure that’s possible, you need to make every effort to reduce the risk of damage to the critical liner system that is the very foundation of these projects.
