Aquadam is an ideal, just-add-water instant dam system. Available in standard heights from 0,5m to 1,2m and standard diameters from 2,0m to 4,0m, as well as custom sizes, the dam folds in half to fit onto a bakkie and can be moved as often as needed.

Aquadam needs no concrete or mesh-wire support and does not need to be kept full to stay standing. Made of strong, flexible, high density polyethylene (HDPE) and weighing 25kg to 35kg, it is easily handled by just two people. The Hi-driline material is UV resistant and literally lasts a lifetime. 

With Aquadam, there is nothing to crack or rust and the structure flexes to match your ground shift. Dams are supplied with inlet/outlet or overflow positioned to meet your requirement. Just place the dam on a smooth, level surface with no sharp objects underneath, fit any inlets or outlets you require and you are ready to go - whether for aquaculture or any other water storage application.

Aquadam has the following advantages:

Low Cost:
You won’t find a cheaper way to contain water. This dam does not need brick or concrete walls or foundations. Unlike old-fashioned plastic dams, it does not need a mesh-wire support structure to hold it up. This simplicity of structure means cost saving.


Easily Transportable:
An Aquadam can be folded in half and placed on a bakkie for easy transport from site to site and you can move it as often as you want - this dam is tough!


Aquadams are made of thick, strong, Hi-Driline high-density polyethylene. This space-age material enables us to make a 7000 litre dam that weighs in at only 25kg. Two people can easily handle an Aquadam.


Does not Crack:
The Aquadam is flexible. If you have “Black Turf” or any other swelling or shrinking ground where your tank must stand, it won’t damage your Aquadam because Hi-Driline can stretch. There’s nothing to crack or rust on an Aquadam and Hi-Driline dam linings have been exposed to the sun since 1979 without significant deterioration.
