What is a Soakaway?
A soakaway borehole, or a deep bore soakaway as it can also be called, is a construction found beneath the surface of the ground. This collects excessive water from the ground’s surface and effectively drains it so your ground is kept in ideal condition.
In areas where impermeable soils are underlain by a permeable stratum, soakage may be achieved using a borehole soakaway. A deep bored perforated plastic or steel pipe will need to be installed to discharge the water from a sealed storage chamber.
A dry well or drywell is an underground structure that disposes of unwanted water, most commonly surface runoff and stormwater and in some cases greywater. It is a covered, porous-walled chamber that allows water to slowly soak into the ground (that is, percolate), dissipating into the groundwater. Such structures are often called a soakaway in the United Kingdom, a soakwell in Australia, and a soak pit in India.
At your request we can provide you with an estimate of the cost of your borehole based on our vast experience and detailed geological records.
(Some areas may need a detailed water prognosis report by a hydrogeologist, which we can arrange at cost).
