We build a drainage system that consists of several main parts: drainage sludge, Geogrid, drainage pipes and wall holes.

Water must flow between the blocks and the ground blocks. So as, to flow through to the surface. We attach the top blocks and tiles to each other with a strong construction adhesive.
