StormChamber storm water chambers are quicker and easier to install than other types of underground storm water chamber systems. The side-portal feed provides greater flexibility in engineering and hydraulic design, eliminating circuitous routing of feed pipes from inlet structures to entry point of a header pipe.
StormChamber was designed as an open bottom, high-density polyethylene infiltration chamber BMP which functions in both permeable and non-permeable soils for subsurface retention or detention of storm water runoff and for a water quality BMP. It reduces nutrient and other pollutant loadings by taking advantage of the natural biological and physical properties of the soil, directly comparable to the functions of a septic drain field. It also recharges ground water drinking supplies, while concurrently helping to maintain base flow to streams, wetlands, lakes, and ponds, and counter salt-water intrusion.
The StormChamber storm water management system provides an environmentally progressive and technologically advanced storage and pollutant removal solution cost-effective and requires less maintenance than other types of underground storm water management systems.
StormChamber maximizes storage volume in limited footprints due to it’s ability to be installed in multiple layers.
Each StormChamber provides 105ft3 (2.97m3) of internal storage capacity or 166ft3 (4.7 m3) of installed storage capacity with the minimum stone requirement . This is significantly more storage per chamber than similar size chambers, which results in need fewer chambers required and a smaller footprint.
Built in end walls allow for a quicker and easier installation. Eliminates the risk of any man made errors during installation.
StormChamber exceeds the ASTM Loading Standard by over two times.
|1. Internal storage capacity of 105ft3 (2.97m3) per chamber||1. Fewer chambers and smaller footprint required|
|2. Minimum installed storage capacity of 166ft3 (4.7m3) per chamber with the minimum stone requirement.||2. Minimum of 12″ (300mm) above and 9” (225mm) below the StormChambers. More stone may be added to increase storage capacity.|
|3. Built in end walls||3. Lower cost and elimination of installation error|
|4. Exceeds ASTM Loading Standard by over two times||4. Tested over 16,000 lbs psf|
|5. Lower installed cost||5. Fewer parts and labor required|
The ideal size of StormChamber allow them to be easily installed by hand. All of the integrated parts and features allow for a quicker and easier installation.

Using StormChamber for storm water BMP is an incredible option because of the ability of the trench walls and plastic pond liner or similar material to cover the bottom. Retention is a stormwater BMP that takes advantage of the conventional storm water basin.
Underground stormwater detention systems that allow detention are considered one of the most effective stormwater BMP systems available to control the flow of stormwater. Though the systems can be found beneath streets, parks, and parking lots, these stormwater BMPs can be used anywhere in residential and commercial areas alike. When it comes to stormwater BMPs, there are two considerations you want to keep in mind:
Although most people associate plastic chamber systems with storm water storage, they can also be effectively used for storm water conveyance. Due to the large size of the StormChamber, a single row can provide a conveyance capacity approximately equivalent to 48 inch diameter pipe.
When investing in stormwater systems, it’s important to not only consider the requirements for storage, but also consider the standards for water quality BMP and exceed them. When combined with SedimenTrap, no other stormchamber system can match or exceed the expectations for sediment maintenance at such efficiency.
Supplies of fresh water are shrinking not only in the USA, but throughout the globe, resulting in steeper prices for water rates. Learning how to be water smart will ensure that you and your family have the best solution for your pocket and the environment. With StormChamber, which is considered one of the best storm water management solutions, you can ensure maximum benefit for your family and local ecology.
Investing in the commercial reuse of rainwater is one of the most noticeable ways to significantly reduce the demand on higher quality – expensive – water resources. Using StormChambers is considered one of the best methods for storm water management because it provides water protection benefits in two forms.
StormChamber prides itself on providing almost all accessory items required for the installation of StormChamber systems. This ensures that all accessory parts are received at the same time as the StormChambers and stored in the same area.

“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!”
The Loudon One project in Ashburn, VA
“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.”
HUGO SIMS METAL RECYCLING FACILITY IN THE BRONX, NY
“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.”
Charles-Lemoyne Hospital, Greenfield Park, Quebec
"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!"
