A soakaway design is a drainage system that is used to manage rainwater and prevent flooding on a property. It works by collecting rainwater that falls on a surface, like a roof or driveway, and diverting it into an underground reservoir. The reservoir then allows the water to slowly seep into the surrounding soil, effectively removing excess water from the surface.
The correct soakaway calculation is essential to ensure the drainage system can efficiency manage the flow of water. BRE 365 soakaway testing provides a detailed assessment of the suitability of your soakaway design and helps ensure that it will meet the specific requirements of your property.
