Our silt traps are intended to encourage SuDS Management, operating alongside a sewer or drainage system infrastructure as part of its attenuation system. This additional component is designed to help prevent flooding by creating a smooth flow of water to enter the soakaway system. EasyMerchant Silt Traps are strong, robust and easy to install.
The one-piece chamber is both lightweight and sturdy. The height of your trap can be cut to size or extended with standard risers. With no special construction required for installation, our silt traps can save both time and money.
What is a silt trap?
EasyMerchant Silt Traps are designed specifically for use with soakaway systems, helping to disperse surface water and other drainage. Each of our silt traps has an integral silt bucket that sits just below the inlet pipe. As rainwater enters the unit, the silt and other ground solids held in the water, fall into the bucket and settle inside.
When the bucket is full, the rainwater or excess surface water will overflow into the primary chamber and any milder silt and sand should settle at its base. The cleaner separated water discharges from the outlet pipe into the drainage system. To ensure the optimum performance of your silt traps, you should maintain a schedule emptying the bucket of solids. It’s important to ensure that they don’t fill completely, rendering them inefficient and unable to disperse the surface water as required.
With this superb piece of equipment you no longer need to concern yourself with how to build a silt trap. Everything is taken care of for you already.
Silt and sediment shouldn’t be allowed to flow into your soakaway drainage crates systems. The efficient operation of your soakaway modular crate system depends on water being allowed a clean passage through the crates and membrane. Where silt build-up occurs, the release of the gathered water will be slowed and offer a significantly reduced performance. Where this happens and the efficiency of your system is reduced, it will require a great deal of effort and further costs to replace or repair the system. Our silt traps can save you from this issue and offer optimum performance of your drainage system.
Fitting silt traps to your water drainage system can provide the collection of the silt, sand and other materials likely to cause problems in your soakaway system, and allow the water a clean passage back into the water table. The easy-to-remove bucket makes the cleaning and maintenance of your silt traps as simple as possible. It’s exactly what you’d expect from EasyMerchant’s high-quality drainage tools for soakaway and attenuation systems.
