Simply Soakwells is a highly experienced and reliable, local family business


Every soakwell is personally installed by the owner/operator of Simply Soakwells, who prides himself on his personal service and quality workmanship.

Why choose Simply Soakwells Perth?


Drainwell DW1592 Polypropylene Soakwells


The best polypropylene soakwell on the market is the Drainwell DW1592 soakwell, which is manufactured here in WA from 100% recycled and UV-stabilised polypropylene. These soakwells are council approved and meet Australian standards.

Strong: Trafficable up to 3o t/m² and can be safely installed under driveways and carparks. Unlike plastic PVC soakwells, these tanks will not collapse!

Efficient: 65% surface drainage area and therefore drain 50% faster than their concrete counterparts. They are by far more efficient and economical than concrete soakwells.

Durable: Resistant to decomposition by bacteria and fungi and a wide range of soil-borne chemicals, meaning they will last forever.

Versatile: These soakwells are perfect for small or enclosed areas as they lightweight and easily assembled on-site without the need for large plant machinery. They are also perfect for large open spaces as they can be assembled together to form soakwells of infinite size and cater for all volume requirements.

Drainwell DW1592 specifications

WARNING: Some companies are inflating the volume of the polypropylene soakwells by specifying the ‘flow capacity’ or ‘flow volume’, not the actual ‘storage volume’ of the soakwells. The flow capacity takes into account the rate of drainage of the polypropylene soakwells (50% faster than concrete soakwells) and is an arbitrary figure at least 1.5 x the actual storage volume of the soakwell. Always ask for the number of individual modules of polypropylene soakwell

Concrete Soakwells


Simply Soakwells uses only the highest quality precast concrete soakwells. All soakwells are of 35+ MPA rated concrete and feature polycarbonate fibers in smaller tanks (6-900ID) and reinforced rings in larger tanks (1200ID) to reduce crazing (fractures). We are proud to be working with Trevor Browne of TFB Earthmoving, to install concrete soakwells, concrete sumps, and septic systems up to the 1800ID range.

While concrete soakwells are strong and tested by time, they are not the most efficient soakwells. Polypropylene soakwells have 65% surface drainage area and therefore drain 50% faster than their concrete counterpart. In addition, polypropylene soakwells are strong and durable and are suited to small enclosed spaces as well as large, open, high traffic areas.
