Sentinel Silt Trap With Filter And Lid - 1010mm Deep x 450mm Diameter With 160mm Outlets
This pack contains the SS500A160 Silt Trap with Catchpit and Filter as well as cover and frame.
The SS500A160 Sentinel Silt Trap is a 450mm diameter chamber with catchpit and filter, designed to be put in line in front of a soakaway This silt trap has a depth of 1010mm and features one 160mm inlet and one 160mm outlet. This silt traps filter out sediment to help prevent the soakaway silting up thus ensuring longevity and an efficient soakaway system, as well as preventing flooding of the attenuation system.
The Turtle Enviro soakaway silt traps are more technical and efficient than standard silt buckets as they work with a filter / mesh system to properly filter the water (however, as with regular silt traps, these also require regular cleaning out to avoid any blockages).
We recommend using a silt trap with every soakaway installation to prevent build up within the attenuation systems. Highly recommended in areas where there is the potential of high levels of silt and sand, eg. coastal and heavily landscaped hard standing areas.
