Brighton Soakaway Installation Experts

If you require installation and repair services on soakaways then you should get in touch with our team here at No1 PHD. A soakaway is an underground system that removes waste water from septic tanks or excessive rainwater, acting as a significant part of a property’s drainage network. Many homes and commercial properties benefit from this system, and you can take advantage of this useful drainage system in Brighton.

Our qualified and certified engineers are Brighton soakaway experts, so you can trust in our team to fit it and complete any future repairs if necessary. We have the tools and equipment to deal with any drainage problems that occur, so don’t hesitate to get in touch. You can reach a member of our local drainage team by calling 08006906777 .

How Do Soakaways Work?

There are two types of soakaways you should consider. A foul water drainage field gathers all of the waste water from a building and then let’s it sink into the ground. Other properties have a septic tank service that retains solid materials and then empties it when it gets full, but a custom built soakaway is an extremely viable alternative. Before it can be implemented, porosity tests need to be carried out to find out how long the soakaway should be and the design.

You can also consider a rainwater version, which allows the substance to filter through to the ground so that your drains don’t get blocked. Instead, any water from your driveway or roof will trickle into an underground gravel pit. Here is where the rainwater will soak into the ground and so avoid blocked drains and surface water occurring. Soakaways can be installed within many different terrains and dug into various soils, including clay soil. But we’ll take care of the soakaway planning and digging!

Soakaway Installations and Repairs by No1 PHD

When it comes to installations, our Brighton soakaway experts need to consider a few factors to ensure that you get the right system. The size of your property is important, as is the type of building that requires the soakaway. Keep in mind that commercial structures will need a different version compared to residential homes due to their capacity and function.

If you require a soakaway for your private home, then we will need to know how many residents are in the property to help us design the right system for you. Once installed correctly, it should work as normal, but there are times when problems occur unexpectedly. If this happens, then you should get in touch with our drainage team at No1 PHD in Brighton immediately.

Our engineers are well versed in all manner of repairs and services, including drain lining and drain excavation. So, when you need us to fix any problems with your soakaways, you can trust in our expertise. We work as swiftly and effectively as possible to make sure that your system gets back up and running.

Both foul water drainage fields and rainwater soakaways can be susceptible to problems, including the following:

After noticing that the house was unusually cold, we found that the heating wasn’t coming on and that our hot water had also failed. We called the team at No 1 PHD who dispatched an engineer to investigate. After discovering that the culprit was a faulty boiler part, they ordered in a new part and got it fitted as quickly as possible. The guys were great, and we couldn’t be happier.

For days, we’ve noticed a foul smell coming from outside and a gurgling sound coming from one of the drains. Whenever it would rain, the area around it would flood slightly and take ages to drain. We tried buying drain unblockers, but none seemed effective. Eventually, we turned to No 1 PHD and were left wondering why we didn’t do this sooner.
