Why Do I Need A Silt Trap?

Why Do I Need A Silt Trap?

Silt traps are an essential element of any efficient surface water run-off system. When silt from draining surface water gets into a drainage system it can affect its ability to function properly. Clogged pipes or silted soakaways can cause a build-up of this surface water. In the worst cases significant surface flooding can occur, and often the drainage system will need replacing. This is not only costly but unnecessary, and can be avoided using efficient silt traps.

JKH Ltd are specialists in providing high quality drainage equipment, from standard products to fully bespoke solutions. Read on to learn more about how silt traps work, along with some of the products available from JKH Ltd.
