WaterUps® Wicking Cells can easily be added to Intermediate Bulk Containers (IBCs) to create an efficient wicking system. This kit includes everything you need to convert an IBC into 2 wicking beds except soil and the sand to level the base under WaterUps® wicking cells. Download the Installation guide for step by step instructions.
It is important that you have a level base for your IBC to sit on. We suggest that you use a spirit level to check. Given that the floor of your IBC will not be completely even, add a layer of course sand to the floor of your IBC so that the WaterUps® cells have an even base to
sit on. You will need about 100L of sand. On top of the sand, it is recommended that you add a layer of Geotextile fabric (included) to ensure that the WaterUps® cell base remains even and stable over time.
