Geotextile Tubes


High Strength Dewatering Tubes

dewatering tubeGeotextile tubes are one of the largest and most cost effective options for dewatering a large site, lagoon, or waste water treatment plant. Constructed from a robust woven geotextile material, dewatering tubes are able to effectively remove and contain sludge or sediment from a water flow. With increased size, strength, and durability, sludge tubes are an ideal choice for demanding jobs or heavy containment requirements.

Similar to dewatering bags, geotextile dewatering tubes are made from permeable fabrics that allow water to pass and filter through the bag. Standard geotube sizes include lengths from 50' to 250' feet and circumferences up to 90'. Custom sizes are also available.

Have a smaller dewatering job? In addition to the large sludge tubes, we also offer several small Dewatering Bags to help filter out sediment and materials. These bags typically include sizes between 6' x 6' and 15' x 20'.

In order to determine the right option for your location, consider several factors:

  • Type of solids you are filtering
  • How many geotextile dewatering tubes are required for the amount of solids you are dewatering
  • Areas available for placement of the dewatering tubes
  • Clear understanding of where the filtered water will flow
