AquaCrate Soakaway System

The AquaCrate Soakaway Solution 


Due to increasing environmental problems, caused mainly by development, Pennine has developed the AquaCrate soakaway system, which prevents extreme peak flow to main drainage and water purification systems.

Helping you meet SUDS requirements.

Planning permission now has to be sought by people looking to install traditional impermeable surfaces in their front gardens (such as driveways, paving) over 5sqm in size. A solution to this is to make the area permeable, for instance by using permeable paving or asphalt, or installing soakaway systems. The AquaCrate decreases the inconvenience of flooding during heavy rainfall, with rainwater “cleaned” by the geotextile surround. As well as attenuation, the AquaCrate can also be used for greywater storage.


As well as preventing flooding, the AquaCrate soakaway is made from recycled polypropylene and is recyclable at end of use, helping you meet sustainability targets.

High quality.

The AquaCrate soakaway is manufactured in the UK to ISO 9001 Quality Standards, from recycled strong copolymer polypropylene. This makes it a robust yet lightweight soakaway solution, giving the product a long life and making yours easier when it comes to installation.
