Triton offers an extensive range of pumps, sumps, drainage channels and alarms as an integral part of its Platon cavity membrane waterproofing system. These provide effective mechanical drainage solutions for all below ground structures where a cavity drain system is being installed.

The drainage solutions are designed to be fully maintainable, as is a requirement for Type C drained protection systems in accordance with BS 8102 (2009), the Code of Practice for protection of below ground structures against water from the ground.

Aqua Channel

Top of page

Cavity drain systems manage water that penetrates the external structure and direct it to a suitable discharge point. There is permanent reliance on the cavity to collect groundwater and therefore a need for access points to allow the system to be maintained. Consideration must also be given to the impact of free lime from new concrete construction. A suitable anti-lime coating such as Triton Concrete Sealer should be applied to the structure before installation of the Platon cavity drain system to avoid obstruction to the drainage system and pumps.

Triton Aqua Channel is a PVC drainage conduit designed to control water ingress in below ground situations. It is fitted around the perimeter of the floor at the vulnerable wall/floor junction and is particularly suited for use in conjunction with Isola Platon cavity drain membranes. Water entering the building through the walls is controlled behind the Platon membrane, and diverted down to the Aqua Channel at the base of the wall. The water enters the Aqua Channel through pre-drilled drainage holes and must then be diverted to a suitable drainage point, either natural, or a sump and mechanical pump. As a general rule a minimum of one sump/discharge point is required for every 50 linear metre run of Triton Aqua Channel.

Channel Outlet
Channel Outlet: Consists of a 90° PVC bend and a PVC male coupling (with swivel action) which is fitted to the base of the Aqua Channel to allow water to be taken from it to the water collection point (sump and pump) via a 40mm OD solvent weld PVC pipe.
Channel Outlet
Channel End Outlet: Where gravity fed drainage is used, this Outlet converts the pentagonal shape of the Aqua Channel into a round aperture for connection to a 40mm pipe and allows water to be discharged into a 'P' trapped gulley or soakaway.
Channel Outlet
Rodding Eye: It is recommended that one rodding eye is installed for every 10 linear metre run of Aqua Channel to allow periodic cleaning of the drainage system.
Channel Outlet
Aqua Channel Corner Piece: To be used to join lengths of Aqua Channel conduit at corners. The Corner Piece includes an option for inclusion of a Rodding Eye.
Channel Outlet
Aqua Channel Connector: A connector to link two lengths of Aqua Channel conduit.
Channel Outlet
Aqua Channel In-line T-Piece: Enables teeing off of the conduit to dissect the floor or to discharge to a centrally located sump.
