Introducing the Tremor Drain System

Revolutionizing earthwork projects through soil stabilization

If you need to install a drain you usually have to excavate a trench, install stone, install a pipe, and then back-fill the trench.

These situations can be dangerous on steep terrain and cause a lot of disturbance to the surface. The Tremor Drain System is a very simple solution that will allow you to inject an eco-friendly soil stabilization chemical, directly into the source of the moisture beneath your jobsite.

How It Works

An Efficient, Economical, and Effective Method to Reduce Clay Swelling

The Tremor Drain System uses a line of steel drainage tubes, perforated for moisture collection, to tunnel into a soil sub-structure to inject a soil stabilization chemical without disturbing the surface.


Data collected from geotechnical reports identifies the slip plane and moisture content, determining the exact placement of each drainage structure.


The site is prepared according to the size and length of drains to be installed.


The tube guide cradle system is set, along with the hammer guide system, to ensure the tubes enter the ground at the angle of penetration specified by site engineers.


Once the system is set, an air hammer is used to drive the drainage tubes into the slope, penetrating to the source of the slope’s moisture flow.


The tube is cut just beneath the surface of the soil at the angle of the slope to ensure it’s unnoticeable from the surface while the soil stabilization chemical is injected into the soil.


The process is repeated according to the spacing determined by site engineers.

What Makes the Tremor Drain System Special

The Tremor Drain System uses a series of steel tubes that screw together, which can be easily installed with manpower only, to seamlessly deliver the product. Once the tubes are in place, a cannister is attached to the end with a mixture of gel and sand. When you connect water pressure, it forces the gel and sand into the earth and carries it straight to the place you need it most.

The water will follow the path of least resistance directly to the wet sub-structure, and inject the mixture. About 12 hours later, the gel will break down and drain, leaving the sand in place.
