Soakaway Drainage

What is a Soakaway?

A soakaways job is to move surface water from the ground to the earth by soaking up the water it can then disperse in into the earth preventing flooding. One thing that may prevent a soakaway from being installed is if the earth is full of clay, as clay will not let water pass through.

Soakaway Installations

We offer soakaway installations and repairs. To install a soakaway we first make a 1 to 2 metre hole in the ground and then perform a filtration test which gives us an idea of what size soakaway will be needed for the area. When we have the sizes we can then provide you with a quote to install a new soakaway.

Blocked Soakaway?

When a soakway becomes blocked over time with mud, gravel and even leaves, the water will start to flood to the surface and may cause damage. We are able to fix blocked soakaways by using our water jetting to push out the blockage. The high pressure water jetting allows us to swiftly unblocked blocked soakaways, in rare cases that it doesn’t work, we may have to carry out a CCTV survey to inspect the soakaway for further blockages and damages.
