Soakaway System – AquaCrate

The AquaCrate Soakaway Solution 

Our Water Attenuation and Infiltration System



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. The AquaCrate decreases the inconvenience of flooding during heavy rainfall. Rainwater is “cleaned” by the geotextile surround.

As well as attenuation, the AquaCrate can also be used for greywater storage.

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