What is a Soakaway Drainage System?
A drainage soakaway is a trench that has a bottom lining of stone and slotted or holed distribution pipes. Through our experience within the industry, we’re able to provide a range of soakaway systems, including interconnected, a simple long trench, a herring bone layout or a large filled pot.
When they’ve been installed by our experienced team, you can be certain that as long as they receive the maintenance required, they’ll last a lifetime.
How Does a Soakaway Drainage System Work?
The main principal of the soakaway drainage system is to store the excess rainwater within the stones at the bottom. Over time, this water will then effectively drain into the surrounding soil/ground, preventing the risk of floods occurring or the ground becoming waterlogged.
The time it takes for the water to drain away from the soakaway will depend on the system that has been installed – however each are highly effective and can provide your home and garden with an effective drainage solution, even when used in conjunction with an asphalt driveway Bristol.
