Key tips for installing a soakaway:
1. Carry out a percolation test before installing a soakaway to test the absorption ability of the soil and whether water will pass through.

2. Install on land which is lower than the property or at least level, to help the flow of water into the system and away from the house.

3. Check that the area has no underground drainage or cables running through - including electricity cables, gas mains, water mains, drainage pipes and street lighting cables. Damaging these can cause dangerous and potentially costly problems.

4. Choose a soakaway which is big enough to accommodate water at its maximum possible rainfall.
Try and make sure the sides and bottom of the trench are as straight and square as possible - which also makes it easier to backfill.

5. Choose the appropriate loading in relation to where it will be installed: either gardens (20 tonnes) or driveways (40 tonnes).

6. Ensure the soakaway is 5 metres away from the property or road.
