Plastic access chambers in drainage applications

Smartstream Technology has undertaken the first stage of the trial installation of its SmartPit Plastic Access Chambers for a stormwater pit in Henley Brook, approximately 28kms northeast of Perth’s CBD.

This groundbreaking trial of the SmartPit in such an application signal yet another challenge to traditional thinking and the traditional way of constructing access chambers. It also complements the PE plastic ribbed pipes that are becoming more prevalent in preference to concrete pipes.

With the lightweight, watertight, easier and quicker to install corrosion resistant plastic alternative, installation in Acid Sulphate Soils (ASS) that can cause concrete corrosion will no longer be a concern for the eventual asset owners.

We will provide further updates as the installation is backfilled, lid and cover fitted and the pit completed to finished surface level.
