Polypropylene SoakwellSoakwells are a crucial part of property ownership in the Perth area.

NOTE: if you reside further south of Perth in the Rockingham or Mandurah area, we recommend Septics and Soakwells WA. We only operate in and around Perth’s CBD.

While we have our share of brilliant sunny days, storms often whip up and drop significant amounts of rainfall in a short period. Perth averages 85.5 centimeters of rain a year. Combining that amount of rain with accumulated water from other sources gives you the potential for water damage if your land does not drain properly. When water damage is impending, our expertise with installation and maintenance of soakwells helps us meet your needs as quickly as possible.
Whether you are building new construction or you are experiencing problems on your property because of a poorly functioning soakwell, you can be sure that we are ready to help. Our team of skilled professionals is just a phone call away, day or night. We are proud to say that our projects are competitively priced and backed by a ten-year warranty.

One of the most frequently asked questions regarding soakwells that we hear is, “Are concrete soakwells superior to polypropylene soakwells?”

The answer to that question is ‘not always.’ Concrete soakwells have the long-standing reputation of being stronger and able to withstand more water as well as more weight than the polypropylene type. While a concrete soakwell is sturdy, it is also nearly 50% less efficient at removing water as a polypropylene soakwell. Additionally, polypropylene soakwells can withstand over 20 tons of direct pressure per square meter, and we can provide them in any size necessary. We have existing customers who chose to work with us because other contractors used scare tactics to pressure potential clients into choosing concrete soakwells. We believe that it is unethical to play on people’s fears. While we are happy to share any pertinent information that we have about a product, we will not give out any information that is not helpful or factual.

With cleansers, fats, oil, and sustenance going down your kitchen deplete, the inward dividers of your kitchen funnels can without much of a stretch be stopped up with development, bringing on an undesirable blockage.

Why should I get an open grill system for my soakwell instead of the traditional direct ‘gooseneck’ connection?

Up Close WellAnother question we often hear in regard to soakwells is, “Why should I get an open grill system for my soakwell instead of the traditional direct ‘gooseneck’ connection?”
We begin to answer this question by saying that there are times when the gooseneck connection is a preferred method of channeling water into your soakwell. If you have an area like a patio or an alfresco dining area, where splashing rainwater would cause unsightly damage, then a gooseneck to funnel rain water right into the soakwell is a good choice.

However, the gooseneck is not always the best system because it has several drawbacks.

There is a risk of water flowing back up your drain pipe and collecting under the eaves of your home if the soakwell is full. The backflow causes significant damage to your home and possibly your roof.

The potential of disturbed pavement is a factor with gooseneck connections to your soakwell. The force of water rushing into the soakwell from the downspout can be great enough to displace sand and soil around it. The sand and soil rise because there is no place else to go. The action of the soil pushes up on the pavement causing it to rise and even crack.

The awkward placement of goosenecks can be a safety issue, especially if there are small children nearby who could easily trip over the goosenecks.

Concrete SoakwellsIn contrast to the gooseneck, the open grill system is flat to the ground; we can even create a surround for the grill that blends with your existing pavement, so it is virtually unnoticeable. There is no danger of water backing up with an open grill. If the soakwell is too saturated with water, it simply goes into the nearby ground.
