What is a slot drain system?

A slot drain is a linear drain that is installed in the ground and is used to filter off groundwater. The main difference between a slot drain and other more traditional channel drainage systems is that a slot drain does not include any type of grating. Fundamentally, the slot drain is another type of trench drain or channel drain system.

The Swarm Aqua® drainage system is based upon the slot drain system and is manufactured to offer customers a number of key advantages.

What are the benefits of using Swarm Aqua®?

  • Superior aesthetic finish
    The narrow design of the slot drain means that less material is exposed than other linear drainage systems, making it less obtrusive. Also, with a choice of cast iron, steel or stainless steel tops, you can achieve a far superior finish.
  • Simple to install
    You don’t need to assemble Swarm Aqua® on site and because it has push-fit connections with a range of easy to use accessories, it is quicker and simpler to install than other drainage systems.
  • Cost-effective
    When installing over large drainage areas, Swarm Aqua® provides you with a more cost-effective drainage solution. The light-weight nature of the product can also save you on transport and installation costs.
  • Ideal in heavy load traffic areas
    The strong, durable design of Swarm Aqua® means that when installed with a full concrete surround, it can be used in areas of heavy loading traffic up to F900.
  • Ideal in high traffic pedestrian areas
    With only two 10mm openings visible at the surface level of Swarm Aqua®, this system is safe to use in areas of high pedestrian traffic.
  • Long design life
    The twinwall channel is manufactured from 100% recyclable material and is resistant to a range of chemicals, with a predicted design life of over 60 years.
