Premier Hydropavers® and Hydropavers Interlockers™ permeable paving systems are easy to maintain and require the same maintenance schedule as any other form of flexible segmental pavements. Due to the unique characteristics of water infiltrating through the body of the paver there is no need to constantly clean or replace course jointing material. The sand filled joints may require initial topping up until they consolidate via natural weathering processes. Once this is achieved the paving can be swept and maintained in the same way as any other flexible segmental pavement.
