When should I install a rainwater pit?
Most common applications for installing a rainwater pit is where surface water is collecting or as a collection point from roof drainage
Is there a risk microparticles from the polymer will enter the waterways?
No, microparticles will not come off the polymer when moulded correctly. If you cut the plastic for pipe connections ensure you have cleaned the plastic shavings to ensure they don’t enter waterways.
How do you join EasyDRAIN to a pit?
Our Rainwater and Stormwater pits are designed so that you can insert PVC into any side of the pit as there is no specified cut out design on the pit itself. This means that you can determine where the pit needs to go and using the underside of the EasyDRAIN Channel or a Slim Pit you are able to connect a pipe via the designated cut out space. To cut into either the Channel, Slim Pit or Rainwater/Stormwater Pit we suggest using a hole saw
