Residential Stormwater Pit Installation

Does your backyard look like a swamp when it rains? If so, you may need to install a stormwater pit. Stormwater pits are designed to collect rainwater from large surfaces such as roofs, driveways, and streets. They act as a storage container for the stormwater before it flows into drainage pipes and away from the property. Homeowners are responsible for managing surface water and stormwater drainage on their property.

Stormwater pits are typically constructed from concrete or plastic and come in various sizes and shapes. Depending on the site’s specific requirements, they can be installed either above or below ground level. In general, the larger the surface area that needs to be drained, the larger the stormwater pit. 

At Full Flow Plumbing and Drainage, we understand the importance of correct stormwater pit installation. Our team of licensed professionals has the knowledge and experience to ensure that your stormwater management system is installed in accordance with Logan City Council Stormwater Management requirements.

Installing a Stormwater Pit - Steps We Take

Site Assessment

Before any installation can take place, a thorough site assessment must be conducted. This assessment includes identifying the location of the pit, the size of the pit required, and any other site-specific considerations that may impact the installation process.

Design of the Stormwater Pit

Once the site assessment is complete, the next step is to design the stormwater pit. This includes selecting the appropriate materials, determining the pit's size and shape, and ensuring that the pit is designed to meet local and national regulations.


With the design in place, the next step is excavation. This involves digging a hole to the required depth and size to accommodate the stormwater pit. During excavation, it is important to ensure that the pit is level and that the surrounding soil is stable.

Stormwater Pit Installation

Once excavation is complete, the stormwater pit can be installed. This involves carefully placing the pit into the hole and ensuring that it is level and secure. Depending on the size of the pit, this may require heavy machinery and multiple workers.

Backfilling and Compaction

With the pit in place, the next step is backfilling and compaction. This involves filling the space around the pit with soil and ensuring that it is compacted to prevent settling or shifting over time.

Finishing and Inspection

The final step in stormwater pit installation is finishing and inspection. This includes ensuring that all connections are secure, that the pit is properly sealed, and that the surrounding area is restored to its original condition.
