Having such a high reputation for good and quality service means we know what we are doing when it comes to Soakwells storm water drainage systems. We have over 10 years worth of experience installing soakwells and we have been preferred by the best.
But why Soakwells?
Soakwells usually consist of concrete, polypropylene or masonry bricks. typically, rain water from a dwelling roof or impermeable ground area travels from storm water piping to a soakwell or underground tank, gently seeping into the surrounding soil.

Have you heard about Hurricane Irma in Florida? well think about this, Hurricane Irma was an unfortunate event that rained down destruction, literally!. waters have swamped the streets and also houses. If you have ever pointed a garden hose at a patch of soil, you would see that erosion and landscape damage the water causes can occur rather quickly.

In the same way water can damage your property, over time it may be difficult to rectify the soil erosion. Even if paving exists beneath gutters, the soil below the paving will soon begin to flow away, which leads to saggy paving or even cause a cave in.

    Concrete Soakwells vs Tyre Soakwells

                       Tyre Storm Water Drainage System

That is right, using tyres for a storm water drainage system, using a tyre as a soakwell can
absolutely be done but really is not recommended.
Sure it is an easy DIY, but at what cost?

Here are the facts, tyres are not very permeable so water and gases can not pass through it.
A tyre is not as strong as a concrete soakwell, think all the weight the and decay the tyre will experience overtime, a flat tyre is not going to make a functional soakwell, just saying. When we Soakwells Perth install soakwells we comply with the standards that which of the government sets and approves.

              Concrete Storm Water Drainage Systems

A soakwell can range in size from a few litres to 5000 litres in concrete or extended volumes in polypropylene. Concrete soakwells are durable, typically in the past, many homeowners installed soakwells by digging a hole and building it out with bricks and mortar. However, this system often allows leaching of sand back into the soakwells.

In Western Australia, soakwells are vitally important in maintaining the integrity of a building's foundation. Rainwater could easily sit and rest against cement or concrete foundations of structures which can lead to the sagging of a building and the quality deterioration of the foundation.

So after the construction of your own house, rainwater will land on surfaces such as your roof, paving or driveways and gather above ground, having nowhere to flow to. Any area, which is able to absorb water, will essentially be absorbing a significantly higher amount, leading to flooding, soil erosion and undermining of foundations. The materials you use and method of installation will determine the quality of your stormwater drainage system

         This Is Why We Highly Recommend Concrete & Poly Soakwells
