Syphonic drainage offers a variety of benefits to your project from a technical perspective as well as overall from an economic point of view. These benfits include:

  • The ability to have a smaller pipe diameter (less materials, lower cost).
  • No pitch in pipework required.
  • Invert coordination is eliminated.
  • Overhead horizontal runs are possible.
  • Under-slab piping is practically eliminated.
  • Cost of excavation, backfill, and compaction is greatly reduced.
  • The depth of rain retention tanks is reduced.
  • The costs associated with rainwater harvesting are reduced as the ability to have above ground tanks are possibilities, as well as reducing the depth of any underground tanks
  • Higher operating velocities contribute to effective interior cleansing and less likelyhood of blockages.
  • Future proof your building with smaller piping and there is no need to saw existing slabs to install new pipework for future extensions or renovations.
  • Flexible gutter design without limitation on downpipes and locations.
