At HydroLogic Solutions, we designed StormChamber as a storm water systems solution that functions in all environments. Whether you’re in a residential or commercial area, stormwater systems by HydroLogic Solutions are open bottom chamber BMPs that function in permeable and non-permeable soils with the assistance of a high-density polyethylene infiltration chamber BMP. This means that the StormChamber can hold up to 60 percent more water than competing stormwater systems in its class. One of the functions that makes StormChamber one of the most unique stormwater systems is its ability to recharge ground water drinking supplies as it works to also manage water-flow to surrounding areas.
The StormChamber is one of the most advanced stormwater systems, utilizing the latest technology to ensure environmental progress and solutions. The technology featured in this stormwater management system is cost-effective at removing pollutants from the water. An advanced storage system, the StormChamber requires little maintenance compared to comparable stormwater systems.
The nation’s leading biologists, ecologists, and technical engineers developed this technology at HydroLogic Solutions to improve the technology that has pervaded the industry over the last decade. StormChamber is at the top of its class for economy, efficiency, and technological advancement. In fact, the structural shape, integrity, and basic corrugations by StormChamber exceed the AASHTO H20 wheel load rating two times over. Boasting the ability to hold up to 60 percent more water with less than half the installment time of its competitors, StormChamber is quickly being recognized as one of the fastest growing storm water systems.
In a marketplace where cost-efficiency, environment-friendliness, and overall quality are main factors considered in stormwater systems, StormChamber leads on all accounts. The design incorporates a 10” riser that makes easy sediment maintenance. In fact, the open bottom and open filtration surface area of StormChamber makes it one of the most self-sustaining stormwater systems on the market, as little maintenance is required to keep the structure working to remove pollutants in the water. Significant water quality enhancement is achieved through using this management system.
The StormChamber isn’t one of those stormwater systems that must be used in an area with pervious soils, as non-pervious areas can also utilize underground storage with managed outflow. Options for StormChamber are plentiful, as it can be used to replace concrete, HDPE pipelines, or corrugated metal for conveyance. With lower overall prices and fast installation times, the StormChamber is one of the fastest growing stormwater systems available.
SedimenTraps are used along with the StormChamber system to help with sediment management.
Two SedimenTraps are typically used for each StormChamber system – in the first and last chamber of the row receiving the storm water inflow. Sediment that escapes capture in the first SedimenTrap eventually gets washed down to the one in the last chamber of the row. Use of our SedimenTraps in this manner provides the same function as pre-treatment units, but at a fraction of the cost.
“Because we have installed several StormChamber systems, a lot of engineers have asked for advice on competing plastic chambers. We have always recommended the StormChambers. They far exceed the competition on cost and ease and speed of installation.”
“Much less expensive and much quicker and easier to install than the 64″ pipe originally speced for the project.”
“Significantly faster and easier to install than pipe. Significantly less staging room needed and a lot fewer trucks to receive and unload.” (The equivalent of 213 LF of pipe nest on one pallet, 1,913 LF on one truck.)
“We have installed several StormChamber systems because we find them to be a lot less expensive and quicker to install than the competing systems and we can install them in two layers on very confined sites.”
“We were surprised by the ease of use of the system and greatly appreciated support provided. We are already looking forward to building our next StormChamber project!”

“I also like that it can be cleaned by air vacuuming via inspection /cleanout ports instead of using water. Anytime you have to clean something with water, then you have to have a truck that collects the water and the sediments in it. Depending on where you can dump that, it can get much more costly as opposed to going out with a vacuum truck.”

“The choice of StormChambers met the design requirements for strength in such a way that the chambers could be stacked three deep with 30 feet of cover, if needed. Strong enough to sustain the impact of 18-wheelers loaded with steel. They also were 30 percent more cost-effective than other options.”

“It was easy. There were no difficulties once the owner decided on the StormChamber system. The project is holding up to heavy traffic, pump tracks, and cranes.”

"We were amazed by the simplicity of this system and have appreciated the support from the Soleno team during the entire project. We are already looking forward to designing another project using the StormChamber!"
