All About Our Soakaway Systems

At ASAP Septic Tanks, we offer soakaway systems using both storm crates, and polybed ezy drain systems, as well as other accessories. Using simple infiltration devices, rainwater, storm water, and any other excess of water, can be conducted away from your home.

What Is A Soakaway System?

Whichever method you opt for, a soakaway system provides you with groundwater recharge, providing you with a more sustainable living environment, both ecologically, and in terms of preventing damage to your property. They are essentially systems in order to avoid the risk of areas becoming waterlogged, which can be an issue in agricultural areas, as well as around domestic and commercial sites.

How Does It Work?

Soakaway systems are a preventative measure and are used to prepare in advance of a possible storm or rain shower, in order to manage excess water. Instead of simply holding the water, these systems drain out the water by redistributing the water from one area to another through the pipe system.

How Do I Know If I Need a Soakaway?

Soakaways systems can be used across a multitude of different areas, whether a golf course or sports pitch, or around building structures and construction sites, for retaining wall and foundation drainage, and offloading the pressure on regular sewage systems. They are essential for those areas where there is no access to a proper watercourse, and perfect for areas that are prone to storms and heavy rain. However, it is worth keeping in mind that soakaways may not always be suitable for heavy clay soils or situations where rainwater is polluted by smog. In case of the latter, it could end up increasing the groundwater pollution levels.

Are There Any Other Benefits?

One of the main benefits is the replenishment of groundwater, creating an ecologically sustainable environment. They are also incredibly easy to install as our team of industry professionals can work quickly to install these systems. Additionally, its use lessens the risk of any water borne diseases to the community. Furthermore, as the water is collected and drained away from the house into the soil, it avoids using the sewer and drainage system completely. In turn, this means that you could see a rebate with your soakaway system installation.
