Perth stormwater pits are designed to collect stormwater when it rains, and they are built to standards. Since they can’t hold all the running water, the stormwater pits are made to be large depending on the application area to contain the targeted water until it drains through the pipes. This enables our pits to keep up with the storm water pace. Here are stormwater pits designed for Perth residents which are designed to fit in different categories of application.
Different types of Stormwater Pits
Stormwater pits come in different specifications and offers vary in material and size.
Plastic Stormwater Pits
The plastic is durable to withstand weight and functionality. In this category, plastic pits are suitable to be used domestically or in commercial places with light traffic.
Stormwater pits also include uni pits that are suitable for draining water pools. They are durable and fast to install with an accompanying simple guide. Their unique design helps prevent water pools at the bottom of the pit, eventually eliminating mosquito breeding sites
Polymer Concrete Pits
They are mostly used by those of us in communication and electrical work. They are good insulators, and made of hard concrete which can have alternative covers made of steel among other heavy duty metals.
