ATTENUATION TANKS

**Please note - if you have a drainage drawing or drainage schedule (SuDS), forward your PDF(s) to [email protected] and we will help construct your list of requirements.
The Solution for Efficient Rainwater Management

Rainwater management is an important aspect of urban planning. With increasing population and urbanisation, it is crucial to manage rainwater efficiently to reduce the risk of flash floods. Attenuation Tanks enable rainwater to be stored and Soakaway Crates enable the easy dissipation of water. Both are an effective solution to manage rainwater and reduce the risk of flash floods.

What are Attenuation Tanks? 

Attenuation Tanks are containers designed for the storage of rainwater. These crates are used in a storm water management system to provide temporary storage for rainwater runoff. The stored rainwater can then be slowly released into the sewer system, reducing the risk of flash floods.

The Benefits of Using Attenuation Tanks:

Reduces the risk of flash floods
Helps in reducing the burden on the sewer system
Provides an eco-friendly solution for rainwater management
Easy to install and maintain

How to Install Attenuation Tanks: 

The installation of Attenuation Tanks involves the following steps:

Site preparation
Laying of a suitable base layer
Instalation of a protection fleece
Placement of the Attenuation Tanks 
Connecting to the sewer system
Backfilling and compaction

It is important to follow these steps carefully to ensure the attenuation tanks perform correctly.

As an additional service for attenuation tanks and soakaway crates, we can provide a 'call off' service from your drainage drawing or schedule.

Attenuation tanks provide an effective solution for rainwater management. They are easy to install, maintain and provide many benefits including the reduction of the risk of flash floods. If you are looking for an eco-friendly and efficient solution for rainwater management, these are the perfect choice.

Attenuation has become an important consideration for any new build project where a SUDS strategy is required. Attenuation tanks provide a storage system for rainwater & surface water. The stored water inside the attenuation tank is released via a flow-control chamber and either pumped via a pumping chamber or run-off through a gravity stormwater pipe system.

We can provide all components needed for domestic, commercial and industrial attenuation systems from British manufacturers including Polypipe Polystorm, Brett Martin stormcrate 55, modular cellular crates and Polydrain Hydrocell. We can also provide a full design service.
