How-to Series Videos

Brick bonding of main bodies

Brick-bonding is a technique to interlock ACO StormBrixx modules together in an overlapping manner. This method can be performed in both horizontal directions, ensuring that tanks of any size can be assembled and fully interlocked.

Cutting a main body in half

Depending on your project, you may need to cut an ACO StormBrixx module into two equal pieces.

Installing side panels

Side panel perimeters for the entire system offer a sound base for laying geotextile fabric. One side panel fits one module (two assembled half-modules).

Installing top covers

Top Covers are used to close off the openings of the columns on the top-most layer of the geoceullular system. These covers prevent ground cover material from being pushed into the columns under the load.

Layer connectors

When assembling multiple layers of ACO StormBrixx, the layers are aligned and secured by two Layer Connectors clicked together.

Pipe connection into remote access unit

Pipe connections can be placed directly into a Remote Access Unit by cutting along the preset templates. ACO also offers a range of Horizontal Pipe Connectors.

Installing remote access unit and extension shaft

The Remote Access Unit and Extension Shafts are used to gain access to an installed ACO StormBrixx system.

Installing remote access plate and extension shaft

The Remote Access Plate and Extension Shafts are used to gain access to an installed ACO StormBrixx system for inspection and/or maintenance.

SD half layer assembly using cover plate and half side panel

A Half Layer Top Cover Plate and Half Layer Side Panel are available for ACO StormBrixx SD applications where a standard system height might not be applicable, such as locations with depth restrictions or high water tables.

Pipe connection into side panel

Pipe connections can be placed directly into an ACO StormBrixx Side Panel by cutting along the preset templates. ACO also offers a range of Horizontal Pipe Connectors if needed.
