Looking for the best multi functional water management system that you can buy online? Here are some tricks to pick the best rainwater storage management system. You can use soakaway crates for attenuation in domestic and commercial projects. It is a good idea to install a soakaway crate system to control the surface water level. This is necessary for areas that are prone to flooding or experience heavy rains. For instance, they can be combined with pipework and geotextile to create an effective attenuation system that can redirect the water collected into storm drains or where it is required at an acceptable flow rate. In this way, you minimize the risk of flooding by installing a filter to control the flow rate.
Most Local Authority Regulations will stipulate that Soakaways must be at least 5 metres from any habitable building. It is best to locate it on the lowest part of your garden, or land, as this will mean that you have less digging down to do. Having said that you do not want a run of pipe that is longer than you need, or that has a change of direction in it, unless you have to. Both of these situations will make the pipe more susceptible to getting blocked. You also need to bear in mind where the water table lies. You should dig an exploratory pit to check that the water table is below your intended site for your soakaway – otherwise the water you direct there will not have anywhere to drain out to.
If your soakaway is located under a patio or driveway then the cost to lift and re-lay the material could be more than the soakaway itself. The price depends on what type of surface you have; blocks, concrete, tarmac, patio slabs etc. Mini digger hire isn’t included in our price guide. If you need to dig deep, it will cost you more. How deep will depend on your garden, elevated locations are an issue for soakaway construction as you’ll need to dig deep. Ease of access is also a key issue. If you don’t have direct access to the location of the soakaway, then your tradespeople may have to go through the house or via a neighbour’s property. This will add time and cost to the project.
