Soakaway Systems

From the Local Name You Can Trust

A soakaway is a hole dug into the ground that is filled with coarse stone and rubble or plastic crates. It allows water to filter through it, and literally soak into the ground (away). Soakaways are used to manage surface water at its source and serve as an alternative option to draining off surface water via a stream or sewer system. A highly effective way of dealing with surface water; soakaways collect all surface water run-off into one point before allowing it to percolate in a controlled manner into the surrounding ground/earth in the area where it falls.

Why Invest in a Soakaway System?

Some properties are on a combined system where the foul water and rainwater all run through the same sewer, other properties have a separate foul and storm sewer whilst others have a foul sewer, and the rainwater runs to soakaways.

These soakaways will be the same age as the property unless they’ve been replaced over the years. The current regulations mean a soakaway has to be at least 5 metres from the property. The newer soakaway systems are made of “crates” and are longer lasting than previous methods.

For any enquiry for a soakaway installation please give Drainline Services a call.
