EPIC Chamber

The EPIC system profile

The Environmental Passive Integrated Chamber (EPIC) Chamber combines the world’s most efficient irrigation and drainage system through non-pressurized, gravity driven, capillary physics of washed sand via direct interface of the EPIC subsurface pipe that never clogs. By design it has no moving parts, but simply by strategic placement of holes, controls how water flows through and out of the chamber. Water flow becomes a natural function of gravity between the units. Upward water flow to create the ideal capillary rise is a natural physical law of nature as reliable as gravity. The durable chambers themselves are injection molded to proven designs similar to pipe used in the mining industry for years to withstand the pressures of 20' of overburden, and as support structures as driveway culverts. Once surrounded by sand, the EPIC field is as durable as any sand-based field.

The EPIC Chamber – a crucial component of the EPIC System

EPIC Green Solution’s intensive water system known as the EPIC System™, uses simple technology, is low maintenance and is designed in an organic fashion that follows the laws of nature allowing water savings of up to 55% - 85%. The EPIC System™ consists of three distinct elements that are combined to work together—the waterproof liner, the EPIC chamber, and the sand fill that covers and surrounds the first two components. The only moving part in the system is water that is controlled by gravity and capillary physics to travel throughout the system in a predetermined order. The largest component of the system is sand. This passive subsurface irrigation system uses capillary physics and gravity to deliver water and nutrients to the plants through an interconnected series of EPIC chambers and a waterproof liner.
