Domestic Soakaway
Introduction to the system

Domestic Soakaway: ACO StormBrixx

Drainage of surface water around any property is vitally important and with the right to connect to a sewer no longer automatic, effective soakaways are now a key part in the planning of any development. They are probably the most common form of surface water disposal for areas less than 100m2 .

Manufactured from recyclable plastic, ACO StormBrixx is easy to handle and quick to install. Its high void ratio reduces the cost associated with traditional soakaways.image

It is important to note that Building Regulations Part H3 states that any soakaway should be installed at minimum 5 metres away from any building line (e.g. foundations).

ACO StormBrixx provides the installer with added assurance for an effective long life solution.
