Hydrorock natural aquifer blocks offer a range of flexible and sustainable solutions for the control and dispersal of storm-event rainfall through infiltration into the soil.
Hydrorock natural aquifer block infiltration systems can be installed as part of a fully integrated onsite water management system and can be combined with other Hydrorock SuDS systems such as attenuation systems, ClaySolve, rainwater harvesting and irrigation.
By maximising the retention and utilisation of precious rainwater onsite, local soil conditions and stability improves while minimising wasteful and environmentally costly offsite discharges.
By dispersing the Hydorock modules over the whole site, the ratio of surface area to volume is greatly increased, allowing for faster infiltration.
Separate Hydrorock modules can be easily installed retrospectively alongside existing installations and other underground obstacles.The blocks can even be positioned next to the existing walls of buildings. This versatility and flexibility in installation means there is nearly always an ideal solution for green or brown field new builds, or retrofitting within the existing built environment.
As Hydrorock blocks are pre-wrapped, the size of the excavation required need only be as large as the volume required.
Hydrorock blocks are solid, so the infiltration system can be positioned closer to buildings, maximising the site potential. Dispersing smaller modules across a site avoids the creation of an extensive construction exclusion zone, normally associated with a centralised underground crated water sump in a large void. Hydrorock therefore can increase the potential number of properties that can be built, maximising value from land and construction.
Hydrorock natural aquifer blocks provide sustainable drainage solutions for onsite clay soil infiltration. Hydrorock filled bore holes provide natural conduits for the rapid percolation of surface water to the permeable layer of soil beneath.

Hydrorock natural aquifer blocks are available to provide 100% sustainable, 100% recyclable water management solutions.
Hydrorock is pre-wrapped greatly speeding up handling. In most projects, the size of the required excavation needed and the actual volume of the blocks required is also considerably less than that required by other alternatives, enabling simple and rapid installation.
