Patrick Wong, a consultant at PWK Geosolutions, had an issue with his backyard swimming pool that was no longer in use and a hassle to maintain. Drawing on his professional engineering training, Patrick devised a plan to install a large rainwater tank in the pool and effectively fill it in. He went ahead with the project and covered the tank with approximately 400mm of gravel to still allow for water infiltration. He had planned to use this new area to practice Tai Chi but found the gravel was too unstable and sank quite easily, so he needed a more stable solution.
Patrick researched a number of potential solutions to solve his unstable gravel problem. He looked at several products and found that the unique design of the GEOHEX™ Erosion Control System would provide a solution to his problem.
