No matter where you live in the country, you’ve more than likely faced the following scenario: After a rain event, certain areas of the community take longer to drain than they should. Within a couple of days, mosquitoes have taken over leaving homeowners both annoyed and at risk from the diseases carried by mosquitoes. The solution? The MiniMax Area Drain, a stormwater infiltration system designed for nuisance standing water problems in residential areas.
Nothing will match the capabilities and effectiveness of the MaxWell IV and MaxWell Plus drywells from Torrent Resources. But for situations where the full scale system and cost are excessive for the problem at hand, the MiniMax provides much needed relief. The mechanics of the system are very similar to that of a MaxWell Drywell, complete with a deep settling chamber allowing for the removal of silt, sediment and debris. Yet unlike band aid solutions such as french drains, the MiniMax is fully maintainable, making it an investment that delivers year after year.
Torrent Resources is able to provide a custom site assessment of your community to help rid it of unwanted (and often times non-compliant) standing water. In the pictures below from a master planned community in Gilbert, AZ you can see how standing water led to severe landscape damage over time. In this community, water took more than a week to fully drain, well beyond the 36 hour requirement. After the installation of the MiniMax Area Drain, the area was clear of standing water less than 10 hours after the next rain event.
Follow the link below to request an inspection of the existing systems in your community that may be in need of maintenance or to set up a site assessment for areas not draining in a timely fashion.
