Water for Soakaway Testing / Percolation Test

Many might wonder what percolation test or a soakaway test is, so let us enlighten you.

What is a Percolation Test?

In construction terms a soakaway is the drain ability of the land in the locality. Important information often relevant to a new build project.
There are two types of soakaway tests. There is a surface water soakaway test and a dirty water soakaway test.

A Soakaway in Clay Soil

Clay soil for example, will impede the progress of water soaking into the land, to filter back to the water table deep underground, whereas sandy soil will allow faster drainage.
In a nutshell, that’s it. If you’re about to build anything from houses to a new shopping complex, you need to know more about the land on which you are about to build. This is so you can determine the amount of drainage required. Drainage fields should not be constructed underneath built up areas. This includes near trees, car parks or buildings.

Providing bulk water for your Percolation Test

Tardis H2O leaves the mathematics to the engineers who carry out the tests. We simply provide tanker loads of clean bulk water to allow the tests to take place in a smooth manner.
To the untrained eye, a typical test involves digging holes in strategic places. It requires filling them with predetermined amounts of water and then recording the time it takes for the water to “soak away”.

Up to 30,000L of Clean water per load

Tardis H2O has the tanker fleet and the depot infrastructure to provide bulk water around the country. We can provide bulk water in many loads as we have our advanced tanker fleet.
