New drainage tech: the downpipe
A case study in Manchester with different solutions for water infiltration and retention systems, showed that soak-aways and infiltration trenches are generally less preferred than capacity down pipes, ponds and filter strips.
And this wateringpipe – the capacity downpipe (CDP) – works even better.
It has a very low footprint, can be integrated in water storage systems and retention. And … it is inexpensive.
The capacity downpipe (CDP) is a new sustainable drainage system (SuDS) invention by the company Watering Pipe. The working of the system is shown in the picture above. The system can reduce flooding by storing or redirecting roof run-off water. The overall amount can be significant considering that typically about 20% of urban areas comprise roof tops.
The Capacity Downpipe system offers many such solutions:
- Store rainwater in a compact space
- Continually refresh the stored water
- Save water by managing rainwater
- Redirect storm water by recycling it
- Useful location for easy access to water
- Fits to hose connections and power washer
Storm water retention
- on a larger building
- the height of the container allows the water to be piped into the property
- or around the garden
This CDP is meant for water reuse and water retention.
Traditional drainage often creates flooding and pollution problems in the lower catchment. The implementation of sustainable drainage systems (SuDS) can help to achieve these goals at similar or reduced construction costs.
