Building a drywell is much more than just drilling a hole, filling it with rock and liner and watching the water disappear. In fact, the technique used to properly drill and install our MaxWell® drywell is in many ways as critical as the system itself. Because we install thousands of drywells each year, we work hard to ensure that corners aren’t cut and the customer is getting the quality MaxWell they paid for. To help aid this process, Torrent Resources put in place a new quality control measure in 2014 to verify systems are built to the company standard. This is just another in a series of control methods already in place.
Using a third party inspection firm, a camera is lowered down the overflow pipe of every 100th installed drywell to show that the well was drilled to the depth indicated on the drilling log and make certain there are no structural issues with the overflow pipe. Since instituting this quality control measure, we’re pleased to report that the third party firm has found the MaxWell to be built exactly as advertised. It’s one small way we strive to hold ourselves accountable to the very high drywell installation standards that we created over 40 years ago. It’s also why there is no substitute for the MaxWell drywell when it comes to stormwater infiltration.
