Soakaway Tanks

Hewitech design, manufacture and install Soakaway tanks.

Materials can either be supplied for contractor installation or supplied and fitted by Hewitech’s in house installation team.

Attenuation tanks are installed in an excavation prepared and backfilled by the contractor using Variobox crates, and a 120g needle punched non-woven geo-textile.

Pipe connectors for drainage are attached to the tank by Hewitech to facilitate connection of the stormwater pipework by the contractor

Variobox attenuation systems for stormwater infiltration are the strongest available, proven by rigorously testing for long term performance.
Variobox Plus with a vertical test loading of 700kN/m² and a lateral test loading of 200kN/m² enable the Hewitech system to be designed and installed at greater depths than other crates available within the industry.

Variobox Traffic with a vertical test loading of 400kN/m² and a lateral test loading of 100kN/m² can be used in most trafficked situations

Access and maintenance to the engineer’s design is achieved by incorporating the Controlbox with a 500mm open channel.

The maintenance channel is used to clear debris from the system using traditional drainage jetting techniques.

Variobox 600mm x 600mm footprint is available with depth configurations, 50,65,80, 100, 150, 200, 300, 400 and 600mm.
