How to use the AquaCell Configurator

To get started with the AquaCell Configurator, you'll need the following:

  • The address and postcode of the site

If you're planning a project using Attenuation Tanks

If you have already calculated your storage volume, you'll need that figure and the below:

  • An idea of your tank dimensions
  • Loading type
  • Cover depth

If you haven't yet calculated your storage volume, you will also need to provide the information below:

  • M2 area draining to the tank
  • Allowable discharge for the site
  • Climate change
  • Storm return period
  • Soil type

If you're planning a project using Soakaways, you'll need to provide the following information:

  • M2 area to be drained
  • Soil type
  • Whether or not there is a high watertable
  • Tank dimensions
  • Loading type
  • Cover depth

Results

When you have finished your calculations, you can download a PDF to print or send to someone.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is an attenuation tank?

Attenuation controls the flow of water as it goes back to the water course or drainage system, which is valuable if tackling flooding downstream or an overwhelmed infrastructure. Attenuation consists of the temporary storage of surface water in a suitable chamber below ground level.

What is the difference between a soakaway and infiltration tank?

Nothing. They are two words used to define the same thing.

A soakaway or infiltration tank is simply a hole dug into the ground, filled with rubble and coarse stone which allows surface water to percolate back into the earth close to where it falls.

What are the benefits of AquaCell units?

Some benefits of AquaCell units include:

  • Significantly reduced flooding risk
  • Controlled, reduced-volume release of stormwater into existing sewer systems or watercourses
  • Recharging of local groundwater (if infiltration/soakaway application)
  • Aerobic purification to improve water run-off quality
  • Sustainable, cost effective management of the water environment
  • Helping SuDS and planning approval

The proven qualities and performance of AquaCell systems not only support the achievement of SuDS, but can also help reinforce and enhance planning applications, and enable development to proceed.

What are the different types of AquaCell units?

We offer four types of AquaCell units, each of which has been designed for different applications:

 

AquaCell Eco

AquaCell Eco is manufactured from specially reformulated, recycled material and has been designed for shallow, non-trafficked, landscaped applications.

AquaCell Prime

AquaCell Prime is manufactured from specially reformulated, recycled material. It is ideal for use in both shallow and deep applications, subject to either regular traffic loading – such as car parks (for vehicles up to 12 tonnes) – or for landscaped areas.

AquaCell Core

AquaCell Core has been designed for use in deep applications, subject to both regular and heavy traffic loadings, such as cars and HGV’s (for vehicles up to 44 tonnes).

AquaCell Plus

AquaCell Plus has been designed primarily for use in applications where inspectability is required, and is suitable for use in all applications from landscaped areas to heavily trafficked areas (for vehicles up to 44 tonnes).
