There are generally two reasons for requiring a percolation test, which is also known as a soil infiltration test. These are either to serve an off main foul water system such as a treatment plant or septic tank, or for sizing a soak-away for surface water. Below Ground Solutions have been carrying out these tests for many years and always put our wealth of experience, training and knowledge into every project.
Percolation/soil infiltration tests are crucial to ensure you have the correct size design for your drainage field. Failing to have the correct size/design for your drainage field might result in the soakaway failing sooner.
The test for rainwater or surface water is done to conform to BRE365 which is detailed on building controls website for guidance. Whereas the test for foul waste is done in accordance to Doc H again available on the government website https://www.gov.uk
Our highly skilled engineers can carry out both tests right across the UK, the tests are carried out to exacting standards meaning the results sheets that we supply can be submitted to building control to satisfy planning officers. All our reports are detailed and contain calculations and drainage field advice based on the results of testing and regulations.
