Xeripave pavers are not your typical hardscape application. These permeable pavers are designed for effective and efficient drainage solutions, and coupled with aesthetic appeal. Make Xeripave pavers part of your drainage solution with these tips.
Offer Xeripave as an alternative to drainage grates in highly visible applications
Xeripave offers natural stone pavers (available in a variety of colors) bonded together to create segmented units, and are ideal for stormwater management, pedestrian traffic, and light or heavy vehicular traffic applications.
“Xeripave provides a unique look, and blends in well with landscapes compared to traditional plastic drainage grates,” said Leon Villegas, manager of Ewing’s Reno, Nev., location.
Focus on Xeripave as an economical and efficient approach to stormwater management
Xeripave pavers capture rainwater as soon as it hits the ground, and allow runoff to flow directly through the surface while filtering out pollutants. The pavers can move one gallon of water per square foot, per second.
Because of its advanced, aesthetically pleasing design, you might think that Xeripave would cost more than a traditional grate. But with its exceptional flow rate, a Xeripave paver is virtually half the cost of a traditional 12-inch x 12-inch drainage grate.
Xeripave’s Super Pervious Paver, at 12-inches x 12-inches, can filter 90 inches a minute. By comparison, a traditional permeable paver’s flow rate is 90 inches per hour.
“Xeripave’s high flow rate is tremendous from a drainage standpoint,” said Villegas.
Xeripave allows high flow rates even in smaller areas like patios, all while taking up significantly less space than traditional permeable pavers. This creates drainage solutions that are as economical as they are efficient.
Create recurring business with maintenance
Proper maintenance is a must for keeping proper flow rates. Xeripave’s natural filtering allows for easy cleaning of the pavers, and helps reduce clogging in a site’s drainage system, making it a must-have for stormwater management. Just clean and rinse the pavers to remove debris.
When installing Xeripave, do not use polymeric sand because it will harden and seal up the paver. Apply 1 inch of clean crushed aggregate instead to the base.
