To perform a satisfactory soakaway test, it must be carried out in accordance with the requirements set out in BRE Digest-365 and Building Regulations Part H.
Soakaway Solutions can assist by providing step by step instructions on how to correctly carry out a soakaway test yourself. We can also recommend suitable Geotechnical Engineering Consultants that can complete the fieldwork on your behalf.
Please also note that the testing for surface water soakaways is different to the testing required for foul water drainage fields or mounds. Details on how to undertake porosity testing for foul water effluent drainage can be found in Building Regulations Part H.
