Attenuation & Stormwater management systems

WHY ATTENUATION AND STORMWATER MANAGEMENT ?

The importance of decentralised stormwater management by using attenuation systems is steadily increasing within the field of civil engineering across various Ireland.

As environmental awareness continues to grow and construction and modernisation costs rise, there is a shift in demands regarding stormwater management and attenuation.

Rather than discharging stormwater into wastewater sewers, there is increasing pressure to either store it for reuse as process water or to implement alternative management strategies.

Have bought Grundfos shower pump from different shop and Tricel come over today on behalf of Grundfos relating the warranty claim. Engineer Paul N arrived and informed me that there is nothing wrong with the pump. I shall have the tap fully open be sure have pressurized the water. This is not right and not correct. Most case and situation you does not require the tap to be fully open to have supplied water as sometimes is enough to have tap open in halfway or less to be sure water will be pressurized. So once the tap is half way open water flowing as shall be then pump switched off and then no water coming or very little and then pump kicks in and you have water supply. He told me that the new one will behave the same way. Before I have bought the pump which is the most expensive pump on marked was assured this is the right direction to go and not. In the manual there is a note of 0.5l/min minimum water flow to be sure the pump operate and solution is to increase the flow. The flow is about 0.75 per minute and pump is still switching off and not supposed to. Once increase it to 0.8l/pm then the pump kicks in and working as shall be. This is over 50% difference. Such terrible service on behalf of Grundfos. Have called in shop I bought my pump and hopefully no one will have to dealt with Tricel. Quick update: Your engineer did not test it the minimum flow as based only on the assumption that is bellow the minimum design flow. As you can clearly see in above post minimum is 0.5l/min and i have test it with 0.75/0.8 and then pump starts operating as shall be. This been shared with Grundfos as is not working as expected. Have ask for one more visit to verify the minimum flow when pump continusly working which is approx. 0.8l/min as does not operate with minimum 0.5 - 0.75l/min flow. Thanks 22.03 Grundfos helped me to resolve the issue with the pump. What looks like Tricel engineer have no clue about these pumps! Avoid if possible and once you are going to lodge call with Grundfos ask for different engineer than Tricel

We had a Tricel P3 water treatment tank installed eight years ago & have to date been thoroughly satisfied with it. We have it regularly serviced by Norbert who has been great with his knowledge & advice.

Frequently Asked Questions

An attenuation system offers a lasting remedy for mitigating the risk of flooding resulting from water runoff during extended periods of rainfall. These systems incorporate a flow control chamber designed to regulate the volume of water discharged into a nearby sewer system or watercourse, such as a river or reservoir.
Inspection shaft

Historically, attenuation have been positioned beneath car parks or within access roads in high-volume residential developments.

Advantages of the proposed storm drainage system encompass minimising disruptions and decreasing carbon footprints. Conversely, disadvantages entail higher initial investments and ongoing maintenance costs.

Unlike a soakaway system, underground floodways can be positioned much closer to a building. The critical consideration is ensuring that the building load or foundation load does not impact the tank. Ideally, if you were to draw a 45-degree angle from the foundation, that line should not intersect the system. However, this may vary depending on the depth of the tank. Nonetheless, they can be situated in proximity to the building.

To accurately size a stormwater attenuation or soakaway tank, specific information beyond volume is necessary.

Key factors include the tank’s dimensions – length, width, and height – which determine necessary components like base plates and ventilation services. Providing a drainage drawing offers a comprehensive understanding of the project, aiding in precise calculations and accurate pricing.

Additionally, knowing the tank’s location – whether under a park, driveway, or heavily trafficked area – helps design the appropriate plate system. If a drainage drawing isn’t available, providing the tank’s dimensions is crucial, though additional information may be required for detailed calculations.

To conclude

In summary, precise sizing requires detailed information on tank dimensions, location, and ideally, a drainage drawing to ensure an appropriate solution for stormwater management.
