Jet Filter weep hole components are an essential drainage solution in ports, marinas, bays, and piers.
Ports and marinas are the gateways for coastal commerce and recreation. They are designed for foot traffic, boat traffic, and movement of cargo. These marine structures must be kept in good condition to maintain a safe and stable environment as well as a prosperous business.
Bulkhead and seawall structures utilized by marinas and ports face many potential issues without the proper drainage systems. Groundwater, rising water levels, and depreciation of these structures can cause unseen voids and hydrostatic pressure build up. These factors lead to structure failures, making marinas and port conditions unstable and unsafe.
Signs of structure failure:
- Uplift of concrete slabs
- Sinkholes or collapsing structures
- Cracked or uneven walkways
To preserve the infrastructure, it is critical to relieve the pressures from behind and under these structures. Maintainable weep hole filters by Jet Filter System is ideal for extending the life of dams, spillways and retention basins. Maintainable weep hole filters install from the front or top of any earth retaining structure without excavation. The system allows water to drain through the structure while protecting against soil loss. The geotextile fabric cartridge provides soil filtration to maintain the integrity of backfill material and thus preserve the infrastructure’s life. Maintainable weep hole filters can be easily accessed and quickly maintained to ensure consistent drainage results year to year. For applications with periodic water height fluctuations, Jet Filter’s backflow preventer unit relieves hydrostatic pressure while protecting against external water pressures from entering the weep hole.
These failure signs will be unsightly to guests and potentially reduce the value of the property. They will also be costly and difficult to repair. Make sure your marina or port has the proper drainage system to avoid these potential problems.
The Jet Filter system is ideal for extending the life of port & marina walls. This drainage solution attaches to the front side of any retaining wall, allowing for water to weep through into the appropriate body of water. The geotextile fabric cartridge creates a barrier to protect against soil loss and maintains the integrity of backfill material, preserving the infrastructure life. Jet Filter weep holes can be easily accessed and maintained, providing consistent drainage results year to year. For cases of rising water level Jet Filter has one-way flow valves, releasing hydrostatic pressure on one side of the wall while preventing splash back or return flow into or behind the port wall.
