      Soakaway Drainage System – Design Steps That Are Essential

      Soakaway drainage system solutions are popular throughout the UK. They represent the traditional way of disposing of storm water from paved areas and buildings. In this post, we are going to take a look at the key steps that are involved in the design procedure.

      When it comes to these types of drainage solutions, the importance of choosing a top quality company cannot be overlooked. You need a business that has a considerable degree of experience in the industry, so that you can be sure they are going to take a careful and thorough approach to soakaway construction. After all, this is not something that should be rushed into. Firstly, the company should carry out an investigation of the site to determine the filtration rate of the soil. Once they have done this, they will determine what construction type is going to be used. For example, they may opt for concrete ring units with granular surround, or they may choose a filled pit in a trench, circular or square form. After this, the company needs to calculate the required storage volume – they will subtract the outflow from the inflow based on a range of permutations to determine the maximum storage for the type of soakaway in question. Finally, the design needs to be reviewed. This needs to be done with a lot of consideration. The company needs to make sure that the soakaway is the most suitable solution, considering the likes of, time for emptying, site layout and space requirements.
