At Nicholls we work with the client/drainage consultant to design the most appropriate deep bore soakaway to provide a solution where a traditional soakaway or conventional drainage is impractical or too costly. This process involves understanding the client’s requirements, the geology and construction design. The Nicholls team can also work with the Environment Agency to obtain relevant licensing where appropriate.
The soakaway borehole drilling is a similar process to that of water borehole drilling and we use British Standard casing.

Nicholls Boreholes & Ground Source are one of the very few installers that both drill and install systems in the South East rather than sub-contracting. The installation of the collector is key to the performance of the system and Nicholls can provide a turnkey reliable solution for both water boreholes, ground source heat pumps (GSHPs) and deep bore soakaways.
Our drilling equipment is designed to access sites of all sizes with minimum impact.
