Drainage and soil filtration are vital to designing walls and maximizing their service life. Retaining wall drainage systems serve two functions. First, they drain the water (hydrostatic) pressure from behind the wall and, second, they stop soil from eroding through the drains (soil filtration). When drainage systems clog and fail, excessive water (hydrostatic) pressures builds up on the retaining wall. Eventually, the retaining wall will show signs of destress. Sustainable Weep Hole Filters are the perfect solution.Water always Wins:The solution.Earth Retaining Structures (ERS) are failing daily due to clogged or insufficient drainage systems. JET Filter System will help protect your investment and avoid costly repairs.Water always seeks the easiest path to flow. Therefore, drainage systems must always be the “easiest path”. Traditional retaining wall drainage systems are installed behind the wall, buried under the soil. Over time, drainage performance decreases as soil particles begin to clog the filter fabric. Once clogged, the drainage system stops being the “easiest path”. At this point, water will find another path or backup behind the wall. Fixing failed drainage systems buried behind the wall require costly excavation.What are Serviceable Weep Hole Filters?Serviceable Weep Hole Filters by JET Filter System provide drainage and soil filtration. Installed through the front of any new or existing retaining wall, Sustainable Weep Hole Filters help prevent failure as they reduce water pressure and prevent soil loss. Most importantly, Maintainable Weep Hole Filters are always easily maintained, they can extend the life of your valuable investment.Weep Hole Filters can be installed on seawalls, bulkheads, bridge abutments, wing walls, stormwater channels, box culverts, dam spillways and even underground parking garages. They are the perfect solution for concrete walls, all types of sheet pile (steel, vinyl, aluminum, composite, etc), MSE walls and even wooden bulkheads.Prevent The Leading Cause of Wall Failure:Excessive Buildup of Hydrostatic Water Pressure & Soil Erosion2Providing Drainage and Geotextile Soil Filtration

Flood Control ChannelsSeawallsOutlet StructuresThe outlet drains are provided with check valves to prevent the backflow of water from the channels into the drainage system.Check valve drainage should be used for channels where continuous relief of hydrostatic pressure is important to channel performance and to help ensure no soil loss or panel failure.With storm tidal or wake action concerns, the weep hole system will facilitate the passing of hydrostatic water pressures (ground water) and stop soil loss from behind the seawall structure.The backflow preventer check valve will stop the passage of water from entering through the structure from the seaward side.Water control is a major factor with regards to safety and integrity of the structure.Seepage must be controlled, It can progressively erode soil from the embankment or its foundation, resulting in rapid failure of the structure.The drainage system is designed to prevent migration of soil particles but still allow the seepage to drain freely.Providing Drainage & Geotextile Soil Filtrationwww.JETFilterSystem.com800-475-2029Backflow PreventerONE-WAY FILTER CHECK VALVE• Let’s Ground Water Out with Erosion Control• Stops Tidal Wake/Storm Surge Entering• Cleanable, Replaceable Geotextile Filter Media CartridgePROTECT MARINE STRUCTURESRelieve Hydrostatic Water Pressure With Backflow PreventionRISING SEA-LEVELS AND HIGHER TIDES INCREASE RISK OF FAILURE“As climate changes and sea levels rise, it pushes groundwater up behind sea walls for more and more days per year, thereby increasing hydrostatic pressures that can impact sea walls.” Dr. Leonard Berry, Co-Founder, Coastal Risk Consulting, LLC, Plantation, FL.

Speed to Drain- Flow RatesMade in USAFaster Flow Rate & Longer Time Between MaintenanceThe conical design of our 4″ dia. maintainable weep hole filter gives 210% more filter fabric surface area than a 4″ dia. traditional weep hole. The increased surface area allows our filters to produce greater than 200%* additional water flow. The 4″ dia. weep hole filter also has 9 times the surface area of our 2.5″ dia. ABS filters and 1.5 times the surface area of the 3″ dia. units. As a result, the 4″ dia. units are the most versatile filter and can be used in almost any application.Storms, sprinklers, waves, groundwater and other events can deposit large amounts of water behind a wall. It is important to drain the water before it causes damage. Our 4″ dia. weep hole filter can drain 20.79 gpm*.US PAT #7,615,148US PAT #10,124,281US PAT #10,731,31742
