Soakaways

Soakaways

What are they?

Soakaways are drainage solutions designed to manage surface water runoff by allowing it to seep back into the surrounding soil, away from buildings and other structures. They are constructed using crates, gravel, or rubble to create a void beneath the ground that collects excess water and gradually releases it into the earth. Soakaways are particularly effective in areas prone to heavy rain or flooding, helping to prevent waterlogging and reduce the risk of property damage.

Soakaways

Is it necessary?

Implementing soakaways is essential for properties that experience excess surface water and do not have adequate natural drainage. Without a soakaway, water can accumulate around foundations, leading to structural issues, dampness, and, in severe cases, flooding. By installing a soakaway, you can protect your property from water damage, improve the efficiency of your drainage system, and comply with sustainable urban drainage systems (SUDS) regulations. They are a necessary and environmentally friendly option for managing rainwater runoff effectively.
