http://jetfiltersystem.com | Concrete Seawall Repair | The purpose of installing weep holes in a seawall will relieve the hydrostatic water pressure that may settle or rest behind the wall. Our flush-mount weep hole system can easily be permanently installed on any earth retaining wall structure. This video will show the 4″ diameter JET Filter System installed on a Seawall for the Ft. Lauderdale Marina located in Ft. Lauderdale Florida by Sea Me Dive Inc a SE Florida contractor. Please contact them at (954) 471-9597 for a complete video inspection report to make sure your seawall is structural safe.
The standard JET Filter System comes equipped with the highly rated TenCate Mirafi FW 300 series. This proven application provides long-term flow rates in dynamic and high gradient conditions. To ensure proper drainage relief, one of the key components to our JET Filter System is a removable inner filter cartridge that can be replaced or cleaned when needed. This simple step can be accomplished from the front side of the retaining wall structure without removing material behind the wall to replace the erosion control fabric.
The JET Filter System also prevents retaining wall failure by relieving water pressure by allowing proper drainage while saving time plus money on avoidable extensive repairs.
The life expectancy of a seawall can be increased simply by adding sufficient drainage. Dry soil may provide little stress on a seawall, however heavy soil without proper retaining wall drainage may cause the wall to buckle or lean. This could mean extensive and expensive repairs will be required. No drainage system can handle a total flood, but a properly installed “retaining wall drainage” system can prevent most water damage.
To keep seawalls or retaining walls from leaning or cracking from hydrostatic water pressure, it is important to install the Jet Filter System to release this pressure.

Proper maintenance and inspections can also avoid major disasters. Water without drainage may weaken seawall walls by eroding the material that supports the wall. Furthermore, poor drainage may cause considerable challenges by settling behind the wall and saturating the soil with incredible pressure. Well-built seawalls and retaining walls are constructed to prevent water from getting behind the wall and our Jet Filter System is designed to provide a speedy exit route for water that inevitably finds its way in.
Are your retaining wall structures failing because of clogged drainage or perhaps insufficient weep holes? Retaining walls such as vinyl sheet piling, steel sheet piling, concrete seawalls, wing walls and bridge abutments are a concern today and may require immediate inspection or replacement.
