What is a Geotextile Tube

A geotextile tube can go by many other names such as geobags, geocontainers, soil tubes, etc., but they all have the same job. That job is to dewater sediments and desludge industrial waste. It's a large tube that acts as a filter for many different environmental needs.

These geotextile tubes are typically made up of woven polypropylene yarns. They are constructed in such a way that they can handle marine applications since it is a water-based project 99% of the time. These tubes are indestructible from natural forces and blocks any ultraviolet deterioration, general rotting, naturally occurring acids, chemicals, and even biological degradation (titanenviro.com). The best part of geotextile tubes is that they are an environmentally friendly option to reuse water. They leave a minimal carbon footprint since the process is much faster than other dewatering options, and doesn't require as much use of heavy equipment (besides loading it in and out).

Geotextile tubes aren't a one size fits all operation, either. These tubes can be built custom to what's required of them, depending on flow rates and the amount of strength needed. They can also be for personal properties or commercial/business properties. They can take in a lot of sludge, and quickly separate what's essential from what's not. Once dry, the tubes can be cut open and removed of sludge (which can be done with the help of a loader or dump truck).

Every project is different and requires a personal touch from a professional. There's no job too big or too small, no water-wrongs that can't be made right with the help of our professionals. Let us work out and design what's best for your needs today.

There's no other way around it, Florida is wet. It's surrounded by water, it rains...a LOT, and hurricane season can be a brutal time. So with all this water coming down and around Florida, how is it...
