Concrete Soakwells and Polypropylene Tanks
All About Soakwells can supply all types of soakwells, trafficable and non-trafficable, as well as grated lids for driveways to most locations in the Perth Metro area depending on your requirements.
Generally we recommend concrete for new homes and Polypropylene tanks for established homes or properties with limited access for an excavator.
If you plan on installing your own soakwells please visit Do It Yourself Soakwells at http://www.diysoakwells.com.au for supply and free delivery of polypropylene soakwells, parts and accessories.
We only use stormwater class U-PVC pipes and our soakwells are always wrapped in a geotextile fabric to prevent leeching. We do not recommend non trafficable soakwells.
Some home owners reduce the volume to less than a third of what is required by installing a single PVC or Polypropylene tank per downpipe. In most cases this does not conform to Australian Standards or local council regulations and may be subject to a non compliance notice, resulting in extra costs likely to be thousands of dollars.
