As monsoon season is upon us in Arizona, a common fear of residential and commercial property owners and managers is, “will my drainage hold up this year?” If you have MaxWell® drywells on your property, you stand a great chance for success. But even MaxWell drywells can only do so much if they are not properly cleaned and maintained.
What can you do to help?
1) Make sure there is no debris covering the grated inlet of your MaxWell drywell. A drywell that is buried or covered by brush will have a hard time draining as intended.
2) Take a look inside the drywell to see if a large amount of debris has accumulated.
3) Notice any standing water on your property 36 hours after the rain has ended. This is an indicator that you have a drainage problem and you may need to install additional drainage devices.

Even more important, only Torrent Resources has the necessary replacement components to use during the servicing of your system.
