Where a traditional style of soakaway won’t work because of geological or site conditions, or where the installation of traditional drainage will be too costly, a deep bore soakaway provides a practical alternative.
The soakaway borehole drilling is a similar process to that of water borehole drilling and we use British Standard casing.
