Buy a Polypipe Polystorm Soakaway Crates Set (0.8, 1.2 & 1.6 Cubic Metres) Online
This complete kit provides a superb Polystorm Soakaway Crate system to capture and drain the rainwater from an equivalent total roof area of 80 square metres.
You will be provided with your assortment of crate cells and the correct amount of fixing clips to build your underground tank.
Soakaway crate systems are designed to gather and collect surface water or rainwater from certain types of roofing systems in an underground tank. By creating this underground water storage tank, this prevents the area where surface water would initially gather from flooding. The water is then slowly introduced back into the underground water table at a rate manageable by the natural recovery system.
Utilising such an underground water storage solution is an excellent way to manage problems of surface water retention. Their surface water attenuation (reducing the amount of surface water) creates an invisible solution at different ranges of depths, including those in traffic-heavy areas. As an industry leader, we highly recommend this Polystorm Soakaway Crate system.
This system has a 61-ton rated compressive strength, and for those looking for an environmentally friendly solution, these crates are manufactured using 90% recycled materials.
You will require a suitable geotextile material to surround and wrap the crates, to prevent any ingress of soil, rubble other solid materials, to protect the tank area from operating at its 100% capacity or filling the necessary space over a period of time. EasyMerchant holds a large selection of woven and non-woven geotextile solutions. Call our team of experts to find out which is the best option for your project.
Further crates can be added to this Polystorm Soakaway Crate kit if the total volume of your tank project requires. When calculating roof area and the subsequent soakaway size, we’d recommend that each additional crate that you choose to add to your soakaway would provide the equivalent collection of rainwater for a roof area of 10 square metres.
Here at EasyMerchant, the customer comes first. We will be happy to help you calculate the tank size and components required for your installation. Drop us a line or give us a call, and we’ll provide you with everything you need to get started.
