What is Aquacomb?

Aquacomb is an innovative detention and re-use system designed to manage rainwater and stormwater and beneficial for both residential and commercial buildings. Aquacomb is a series of interconnected water storage pods that are located within a concrete slab, under driveways or decks which provides more usable space for homeowners and businesses.

Whether you have a need for water detention and/or water retention, Aquacomb provides the smartest, most efficient solution for all water storage requirements.

How does Aquacomb work with QPOD™?

Because of the 1100mm x 1100mm size pods for both Aquacomb and QPOD™, this combination works seamlessly together for an Earth Friendly Flooring Solution.  Both products are manufactured from recycled plastic, and all offcuts are 100% recyclable. QPOD™ is designed to be adjustable to fit any slab configuration.  As with QPOD™, Aquacomb is quick and easy to install, which saves days in construction time and significantly reduces building costs.
