Once the QuickDrain has been laid in the trench you are ready to start covering the QuickDrain.
EXPOL makes drainage easy. To ensure you get the best result, follow these simple steps.
Place EXPOL StyroDrain polystyrene sheets hard up against the retaining wall after the water proofing membrane or tanking has been applied. Use EXPOL Construction Adhesive to secure the sheets in place while backfilling.
Place the sheets of EXPOL StyroDrain on top of a 100mm perforated drain. Ensure the perforated drain is surrounded by drainage gravel and situated at the base of the retaining wall. On high reach retaining walls, it may be necessary to use a double thickness along the base of the wall to allow for increased compression and better drainage.
EXPOL StyroDrain should cover all of the waterproofing membrane and tanking areas. Sheets should not be exposed at the top of the wall.
