UNFOLDING ON THE SITE
First step consists on unfold and unroll flood barrier(s) to protect the site Once flood barrier(s) is/are unfolded, you have to close valves and waterproof zips to start inflating.

INFLATING
Inflation of tubes is possible thanks to a blower. Flood barriers are filled with air to make easier their installation in a view to have a best adhesion on the ground. Protection will be reinforced.

POSITION OF THE BI-TUBES
Both tubes are linked together. The lacing up of tubes has to be made from the middle to the extremities of both tubes. They have to be firmly tight before the reception of the monotube.

INSATALLATION OF CUFFS (CONNECTION)
The cuffs are used to link two lengths of flood barriers, while keeping both the sealing and the protection at this junction.
WATER FILLING
Water filling is possible thanks to junctions Storz or Guillemin (1/2 symmetrical junction). During the filling, air is ejected by an air overflow. Flood barriers keep their form throughout the process. When flood barriers are filled of water, the excess is expelled through the overflow.

EMPTYING AND STORAGE
The emptying process is quick and is possible thanks to waterproof zips. Emptying has to be coupled with a complete drying of tubes before storage in a view to extend their duration.
