The Rain Guardian Turret is a fully reinforced concrete structure. The top grate of the structure initially captures leaf litter and larger debris, while the chamber base and filter wall capture and house smaller particles before the stormwater enters the bioretention system. This pretreatment prevents stormwater passing by the bioretention system before it reaches capacity.
Turrets are suggested for commerical and industrial use, such as parking lots and high traffic areas.
Rain Guardian offers simple installation and maintenance, with placement taking just minutes and the ability to be retrofitted to existing structures. The monolithic structure includes a 4” base, which simplifies installation because it can be simply placed on a compacted, crushed rock base prepared at the proper elevation. Maintenance involves removal of sediment and debris with a shovel and cleaning the drop-in filter with a broom or hose.
