The silt trap is intended to encourage SuDS Management along with the sewer infrastructure as part of a designed attenuation system, helping prevent flooding by limiting the amount of water that enters the soakaway system.

The one-piece chamber is very robust and lightweight, they save substantial amounts of costs as they require no construction. It can be easily cut to height and extended to fit as needed.
The EasyMerchant Silt Trap is designed specifically for use with soakaway systems. The silt trap has a integral silt bucket that sits just below the inlet pipe. Rainwater enters the unit and silt and solids in the water will fall into the bucket and settle inside, once it is full any additional rain will overflow into the primary chamber and any milder silt and sand will settle at the base and then cleaner separated water discharges from the outlet pipe into the drainage system. The silt trap should be maintained by emptying the bucket of any solids to ensure it doesn’t fill.
Silt and sediment shouldn’t be allowed to flow to a soakaway drainage crates system because it will lead to reduced efficiency within the system, it will also reduce its sustainability and can occasionally leave you with no other option but to buy a brand new one. A silt trap accumulates these substances in a bucket and enables the filtered water to flow through into the soakaway system. The bucket can be easily removed and put back in to place when cleaning is required.
