What is a Stormwater Pit?

Stormwater pits, also known as drainage pits, are a key component in managing rainwater and stormwater on your property.

These pits are connected to the stormwater drainage system through a network of pipes, collecting water from roofs and ground surfaces, preventing flooding.

Our stormwater pits come with a durable stormwater grate, preventing debris from entering the system.

They can be used effectively where an existing pavement has been finished with undulating falls for point drainage, or for the collection of concentrated surface water runoff.

ACO’s Grated Pits are designed for surface water management and are lightweight, easy to transport and handle and are available in a wide range of sizes.

Stormwater Pits – Frequently Asked Questions

What is a stormwater pit system and how does it work?

A stormwater pit system is an integral part of modern drainage infrastructure designed to collect and redirect stormwater, effectively preventing pooling and potential flooding on the ground. It functions as a crucial intersection in the stormwater drainage network by collecting water from surfaces such as roofs, driveways, and other trafficable areas through a stormwater grate. This grate filters out debris to ensure efficient operation. The collected water is then redirected through connected PVC pipes or similar drainage conduits. Stormwater pits ensure the safe management of water flow, even under conditions of high rainfall or water runoff from adjacent areas.

How does the installation process of a stormwater pit differ from a traditional drainage pit?

The installation process of a stormwater pit differs from a traditional drainage pit mainly due to its connection to a storm drain system and the incorporation of a grate. Unlike a basic drainage pit, the stormwater pit installation involves integrating the pit with existing stormwater infrastructure, typically through PVC pipes or similar conduits. Additionally, the stormwater pit includes a stormwater grate, which helps filter out debris and prevent blockages, enhancing its effectiveness in managing rainwater runoff and mitigating potential flooding.

Are stormwater pits suitable for commercial applications?

Yes, our stormwater pits are suitable for commercial applications. They offer an effective surface drainage solution for commercial environments, capable of withstanding high volumes of legitimate traffic. These pits ensure the safety and functionality of the site, with their robust design and efficient rainwater management capabilities preventing water pooling and flooding, thus maintaining the integrity of commercial infrastructure. Their compatibility with various grate options allows customisation to meet specific aesthetic and functional needs.

How do stormwater pits enhance stormwater management?

Stormwater pits significantly enhance stormwater management by capturing and directing rainwater and runoff into the drainage system, preventing pooling and potential flooding. The pits effectively manage the legitimate traffic of stormwater and accommodate a range of grate options to facilitate the capture of water while preventing debris from entering the system. This design not only complies with Australian standards but also enables efficient rainwater direction to the desired site connection, optimising stormwater management and maintaining safe and dry conditions.
