How to erect a WaterWall steps:
Step 1When the barrier is not deployed, the opening remains unobstructed allowing full access as and when required.
Step 2When the threat of flooding becomes apparent, commence the deployment process by unfastening ground insert dust caps with screwdriver or similar.
Step 3Once the caps have been loosened across the entire barrier length, lift the caps out to prepare each insert for deployment of demountable post.
Step 4Before inserting the demountable post, please ensure that the post and ground insert are free from any debris.
Step 5Insert demountable post into ground insert ensuring located correctly (note FRONT indicated) and finger tighten (only) the top securing nut.
Step 6Continue this process along the entire barrier length until all posts are deployed.
Step 7Begin inserting the first panel into the rails, ensuring that you start with the rubber sealing bottom panel first (these panels have seals on both top and bottom).
Step 8Continue the process of inserting all panels along the entire barrier length, ensuring all bottom panels are lowest, then middle panels, then top panels
Step 9Complete the installation by inserting all panels , ensuring that all middle seals (between panels) are correctly seated and not misplaced.
Step 10Lightly secure demountable posts by using tool provided - DO NOT TIGHTEN AT THIS STAGE.
Step 11Insert compression block into fixed wall post and finger tighten.
Step 12Finger tighten the horizontal compression screws by hand, so that panels begin to depress against the rubber seal on the inside of the channels.
Step 13Finger tighten the vertical compression screws on the top locking block by hand, which will depress the rubber seal on the bottom aluminium panel to the floor.
Step 14Tighten compression block at the front with tool provided.
Step 15Equally tighten compression blocks in fixed wall posts...
Step 16...and compression screws at the top of the demountable posts.
