Case Study – Stormpit PE Manhole

City of Swan
Henley Brook

Smartstream Technology has undertaken the first stage of the trial installation of its StormPit Access Chamber for a stormwater pit in Henley Brook, approximately 28 kms north east of Perth’s CBD.

This groundbreaking trial of the StormPit in such an application signals 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.

Plastic Access Chambers/Maintenance Shafts have been proven to have a carbon footprint less than 1% of the footprint associated with concrete manholes.

We will provide further updates once the verge is finalised.
