Perforated pipe

Our soakaway tanks are fabricated from perforated, corrugated pipe. They’re custom-built and fully accessible for inspection and maintenance, unlike other forms of infiltration drainage system.

Expert soakaway design options

We can manufacture perforated pipe to fit any situation – using pipe systems, vertical rings or a combination of the two. Our extensive range of fabrications includes elbows, T’s, shafts and pump chambers. Pipe is available in 0.3m to 3.6m diameter and gauge range from 1.5mm to 4.0mm. Standard length is 7m but pipe can be made in any length from 3m to 12m to suit your needs.

We determine the suitability of a design by understanding the capacity of the soil to infiltrate water (the ‘infiltration coefficient’). We check the existing or historic groundwater levels to make sure the invert of the intended soakaway is at least 1m below and we also look at the plan area available for the soakaway unit.
