Dorset Build and Pave excels in fitting these systems, ensuring your property stands resilient against the unpredictable British weather while supporting Dorset’s environmental goals.

What are Attenuation Tanks used for?

When strategically placed, attenuation tanks collect excess rainwater, particularly during intense flooding and storms. This is then released slowly and gradually by the tank, significantly reducing the risk of flooding. Moreover, they also serve as a sustainable element of the urban drainage systems in Weymouth, playing a crucial role in the area’s water management strategies.

How long do they last?

The lifespan of attenuation tanks can vary depending on various factors. These include the materials used, the frequency of use, maintenance practices, and environmental conditions. Typically, attenuation tanks are designed to be durable and have a long lifespan. This ranges from 20 to 50 years or more with sufficient maintenance.

Regular inspections and maintenance, including cleaning and repairing any damage, can help extend the lifespan of attenuation tanks considerably. Additionally, the standard of installation and the build quality of the unit can also impact longevity. It’s essential to follow manufacturer guidelines and industry best practices to ensure the longevity and effectiveness of attenuation tanks.

What materials are used in stormwater tanks?

Water attenuation tanks can be constructed with various materials depending on factors such as site conditions, project requirements, and budget. Some common materials used in the construction of attenuation tanks include:

  • Concrete: Concrete is a popular choice for attenuation tank construction due to its durability, strength, and ability to withstand heavy loads. Precast concrete sections can be used to create the tank structure.
  • Plastic: High-density polyethylene (HDPE) or other plastic materials are often used for modular attenuation tanks. These tanks are lightweight, easy to install, and resistant to corrosion and chemicals.
  • Metal: Galvanized steel or stainless steel may be used for attenuation tank construction, particularly for underground tanks. Metal tanks offer strength and durability but may be susceptible to corrosion over time.
  • Fiberglass: Fiberglass-reinforced plastic (FRP) is another material option for attenuation tanks. FRP tanks are lightweight, corrosion-resistant, and can be custom-designed to fit specific project requirements.
  • Geosynthetics: Geosynthetic materials such as geotextiles and geomembranes are sometimes used in conjunction with other materials to line or reinforce attenuation tanks, providing additional strength and protection against leaks.

With huge thanks to Paul, team and tradesmen for their hard-work and commitment in building our single-storey extension/refurb to an exceptionally high standard. We’re delighted with the build, our needs completely understood which helped make it a result we're happy with. The whole team are personable and helpful, changes easily made and no request was too much trouble. We had no problems with completion time and the building process was made much less stressful with having an organised, reliable team. We have pleasure in highly recommending Dorset Build & Pave for your building needs

Dorset Build & Pave changed my ground floor with a wealth of knowledge and expertise. I had a downstairs shower room/toilet and new kitchen plus extension. Paul himself had a wealth of knowledge in what he was doing and managed all the works superbly and efficiently. He also kept in touch with me about everything that was going on from start to finish. His workforce did not let him down with every single one of them doing an expert job and having a pride in their work Chris especially hard working and polite always. I would highly recommend and already have done to others looking at or thinking of having future work done. Thanks to all of you for my fab 'new look'

Dorset Build and Pave built a dormer en suite for us and re-roofed our bedroom. They were professional, polite, arrived when they said they would, and gave solutions when challenges arose; not always expensive solutions either. We'd recommend them (and have done) over and over!
