The Full Hydrostatic Dock uses its weight to resist the full hydrostatic head on the maximum water table.
The Fully Relieved Dock uses a drainage system around the basin to drain the water away.
The Partially Relieved Dock uses a drainage system under the floor to eliminate the hydrostatic pressure, but the walls resist the full hydrostatic head.
