Sand Pad For House/Shed and Water Tanks Dwellingup-Pinjarra-Harvey-Bunbury

Sand Pad For House/Shed and Water Tanks Dwellingup-Pinjarra-Harvey-Bunbury

To build a house or extension the sand pad must be certified for building on, so the supplier of the sand is to certified the sand for building on.

Shed and water tanks sand pads only require clean sand without grass rubbish rocks etc.

For the sand pad for house or extensions 

Once certified sand is laid, it will be compacted, a certificate is supplied by a geotechnical business once approved, this is required for your structural engineer can design your concrete slab footing etc. There are a lot of customers being caught out at present, unknown to themselves where the sand is supplied from. Customers hire a bobcat operator to level the sand then are told they require it to be certified. So then they have to find someone else to certify the sand pad. Which then becomes a issue as not many businesses will certify someone else’s job and if they do it will be for a price. If they are unable to find someone, then the council may require the whole job to be restarted again with the correct procedure, with certified sand, compaction and certificate.

For a new dam construction most councils require approval before construction can begin, if you are cleaning it out and not extending it then you able to do this without a permit, but check with your local councils, as most have different requirements.

As for your water tank they come in various sizes, made of steel or plastic. Sand Pads are required for the water tank, tanks must be installed on a level pad site, once installed the water tank is fill with an amount of water specified for your tank and acts as an anchor weight to prevent movement in high winds or stormy area, Then an amount of aggregate is placed around the water tank to prevent erosion.

Leach Drain Supply and Install Perth-Boddington-Bannister-Harvey-Lake Clifton

Leach Drain Supply and Install Perth-Boddington- Bannister-Harvey-Lake Clifton

What is a Leach Drain? It is a Tube like structure which is either made of concrete or plastic which has holes in the sides and buried in the ground. Pre treated effluent flows by gravity or pumped to a leach field for disposal. Waste water is absorbed by soil particles and moves both  Horizontally and Vertically through soil pore.

Difference between Plastic and Concrete.

Concrete leach drains come in precast modular of mostly 1.2 metre lengths standard or traffic, standard is usually for back yards where there is no vehicles or heavy items travelling over them, traffic leach drains are used where vehicles will drive over them. Concrete leach drains can last up to 30-40 years or longer depending on the PH level balance in the soil, maintence and the pumping. Even though they might be a bit more expensive they are value for money in the long run, will not spilt or collapse.

Plastic leach drains are a cheaper alternative but will not last as long as concrete leach drains, more chances of splitting or collapsing if they are not installed correctly, different suppliers have variety of quality plastic leach drains, they come in kit forms to assemble in cube like form, you can purchase trafficable leach drains for under driveways.

If your requiring a install for a  leach drain or septic system contact Bruce on 0414755306 at Dobson Excavations
