ACO Surface Dranage FAQs

What is a driveway drain called?

Linear drainage systems, such as channel drains, trench drains, or strip drains, are effective solutions to prevent flooding in garages, basements, driveways, and gardens.

Where does driveway drainage go?

Normally, the driveway slopes away from your home and collects water, which is then directed into a linear channel drain located at the driveway's end. This drain efficiently redirects the water into a storm drain for proper disposal.

Where does water from ACO drain go?

The ACO Drive Drain system functions as a surface drain, collecting water from the pavement and guiding it into an underground drain. From there, the water is directed towards a suitable SUDS system, the main Surface Water sewer, a nearby ditch, or a watercourse.

Do I need permission to connect to the drain?

Absolutely, it is vital to obtain written consent by completing a Section 106 license before connecting your property to the public sewer. Additionally, for connection works within public roads or footways, a street works license issued by your local council is required.

Can I install a drain in my garden?

If you're considering garden drainage, careful planning on where the water will be directed is crucial. Viable options include utilizing ditches, streams, or implementing soakaways, which are deep holes filled with rubble designed to facilitate water absorption into porous rocks.

Do you need a slope (fall) on an ACO Drain?

A slight slope of 1:100 is all you need to ensure efficient drainage with ACO Drain, even in smooth situations.

What is the minimum slope (fall) for rainwater drainage?

For residential drainage using 100mm pipes, the minimum recommended slopes are 1:40 for Foul Water and 1:100 for Surface Water.
