What Does Infiltration/Soakaway Testing Involve?
We use an excavator or handheld equipment to dig a hole that we then fill with water. From here, we calculate the rate at which the water soaks away which gives us the infiltration rate. Additionally, we can perform shallow soakaway testing for SuDS, drainage fields for sewage treatment plants and micro drainage design.
We also carry out shallower soakaway testing to BS6297. This is required to design shallow drainage fields for packaged sewage treatment plants.
