Managing your rainwater drainage doesn’t need to be a burden, there are hassle-free drainage systems available.


With the constant change in health and safety, evolving legislation surrounding the correct management of rainwater, and continued improvements to environmental considerations, it’s difficult to know how rainwater drainage needs to be implemented.

What’s needed is a means of managing rainwater and your rainwater drainage with minimal ease. This way, when it comes to your project, you can get on with the installation, knowing that all the paperwork and other time-consuming processes have been taken care of.

With a simple and streamlined rainwater management approach, all your concerns evaporate, and you can focus on the most important things. But what is the best way of managing rainwater drainage, the hassle-free way?

Rainwater Drainage: The Problems


Firstly, it’s important to understand why exactly rainwater management and rainwater drainage is becoming an important part of the construction process.

You only have to look out the window to realise the impact of climate change. Drier, hotter summers and wetter, stormier winters are just the tip of the iceberg. According to findings by the Met Office, the number of days where more than 30mm of rain will fall in an hour could be ‘twice as likely by the 2030s, and 3.5 times more likely by 2070.

These weather extremes put huge pressure on developments, too. Twinned with growing populations and increasing demand for greener living spaces, finding ways to manage rainwater safely and sustainably is the only way to counteract the ever-growing risk of flooding.

Whether that is through plastic rainwater pipes or stormwater management systems, gullys or attenuation and infiltration tanks, you need the procurement, installation and management processes to be straightforward.
