Overview

Ecoaid has been used throughout Australia on many types of
projects including:

High end commercial developments
Residential and sub-division
Local and State government projects including schools and hospitals
New sports fields for water harvesting
Drainage under public roads
Open sump conversions into Public Open Space

Ecoaid is an underground modular stormwater system used for detention, infiltration or harvesting stormwater runoff. The system also provides stormwater treatment by utilising a “Catch-All-Row” (C-A-R) as an internal gross pollutant and sediment trap.

The dual function of stormwater collection and treatment allows the engineer to optimise the drainage layout by minimising the number of manhole pits, with the added benefit of omitting the need for external gross pollutant and sediment traps.

The Ecoaid chamber system can provide both primary and secondary treatment through the removal of gross pollutant and sediment via physical screening, sedimentation and filtration techniques. The Ecoaid system is easily maintained from street level via the C-A-R utilising a Jet-Vac cleaning unit with a high pressure hose.

Ecoaid is an Exceptionally strong and robust water storage and treatment system that is capable of being used under public roads, car parks, sports fields and public open space. This provides the engineer with opportunities to save valuable land space and protect natural waterways from the damaging effects of pollution from both new and existing developments.

The Ecoaid system is manufactured in Australia and is a proven cost effective alternative to imported systems. Local manufacture not only supports the Australian manufacturing industry, it also provides shorter product lead time and a financial boost to the local economy.

Ecoaid Installation Guide

Ecoaid is an underground modular stormwater system used for detention, infiltration or harvesting stormwater runoff. The system also provides stormwater treatment by utilising a “Catch-All-Row” (C-A-R) as an internal gross pollutant and sediment trap. The dual function of stormwater collection and treatment allows the engineer to optimise the drainage layout by minimising the number of manhole pits, with the added benefit of omitting the need for external gross pollutant and sediment traps.

Catch-All-Rows are simply rows of chambers with stormwater inlet pipes that have been laid upon a base filter (WP40 1.33 m wide and cover filter (Filterwrap). The Catch-all row is a treatment device serviced via inspection/ cleaning ports and environmental contaminants etc. are deposited by sedimentation or filtered from the surface water and are retained in this row, where they can periodically be cleaned out.

1. Before placing any chambers or end caps on the Catch-all row, roll out the WP-40 Catch-all base filter on the stone bedding layer.

2. Position Catch-all row chambers and end caps. Ensure that some of the WP-40 Catch-all base filter extend either side of the chamber feet all the way along the row.

3. Cover this row the grey Filterwrap Catch-all cover filter geotextile. Ensure that the three slots on each corrugation of the chamber are covered by this geotextile and it extends fully over each end cap.

4. Insert the Lateral pipes and inspection port risers through a hole or cuts made in the Catch-all cover material.
