WaterFence has been professionally engineered to withstand most California earthquakes. Flexible connections allow bending and stretching even in the most severe cases, keeping your stored water and WaterFence in place.
WaterFence has been designed to easily handle winds in excess of 125 MPH. higher wind testing can be done if needed.
Simple flexible connections connect each tank together with shut off valves between tanks to facilitate water flow control
Automatic overflow system
If there is an exceptional amount of rain and WaterFence becomes full, the excess will automatically drain off any overflow to the designated drain points.
Virtually no maintenance needed, no moving parts
Screens on the top of the collection rain gutters will keep debris from entering the WaterFence system.
Another unique feature of the WaterFence Soundwall system is the solar panels are self-cleaning with small sprinklers attached using WaterFence storage, the panels are washed at preset times and dates to rinse off the dirt dust and grime that would reduce electric output by as much as 85% therefore keeping the electric power generation at maximum. The water is not wasted, it drains back into the WaterFence sections.
