At the forefront of surface water drainage innovation

Water is a resource and water sustainability should worry us all. Heavy rainfall across the UK is often aligned with an array of problems including excess surface water and subsequently flooding.

Water run-offs can remain unused because many are ill-informed on ways to utilise rain without proper drainage, and consequently areas can easily become damaged and/or flooded. To minimises or even prevent such unwanted situations from water run-offs, drainage systems need to improve water flow and promote pollution dispersion via innovative technologies and products.


As leaders in water and wastewater storage treatment and purification solutions, Premier Tech Aqua UK’s (PTA UK) pioneering solutions for rainwater harvesting, stormwater management, storage and pump stations, are specifically designed for durability and impact. From surface water infiltration to surface water attenuation, PTA UK has a wide range of solutions dedicated to solving surface water issues.


With transformations in urbanisation alongside industry and climate change, PTA UK has developed water management products and systems to provide solutions – making space for water and mitigating the impact of these changes.


Water sustainability is a major issue nowadays as city planners and developers across the country work alongside the environmental agency, adhering to strict guidelines regarding the discharge of surface water.


Attenuation is a key feature of today’s drainage systems. Attenuation is the process of storing and slowly releasing surface water run-off, a crucial feature of modern Sustainable Drainage Systems (SuDS). By slowing down the rate at which surface water enters sewers or water courses, the risk of downstream flooding and associated damage and issues reduces.


Premier Tech Aqua UK’s separators, including Conder Full Retention, Forecourt and Bypass, remove hydrocarbons and silt among other impurities (i.e. nutrients and heavy metals) from water run-offs and manage the risk of contamination with oil and a foreseeable risk of significant spillages. PTA UK’s rainwater harvesting  range responds to the needs of domestic and commercial properties, as well as the agricultural sector, reducing pressure on drainage systems and significantly reducing water bills, further alleviating the negative impact of excessive rainfall or insufficient drainage.


PTA UK also provides a range of attenuation tanks in different sizes, designed to meet specific project requirements. The combination of their advanced products and full technical assistance, means customers can be assured that their attenuation system meets predicted storm water capacities.


All PTA UK systems come with resin-rich interior walls that provide a durable, chemical and corrosion resistant surface allowing excellent flow characteristics. A choice of access shafts to fit height specifications, plus a selection of inlet and outlet connections to required size and angulation as well as a range of pumps mean storm water can be elevated to the local mains system.


With sustainable development and an eco-friendly approach always front of mind, the Ecoflo Coco Filter sewage treatment plant from PTA UK is the most ecological, user-friendly solution on the market for residential and commercial projects where mains drainage is unavailable.


What’s truly ground-breaking about Premier Tech Aqua UK’s drainage solutions is innovations such as smart automatic closure devices, sensors and advanced filter materials on all separators. These revolutions alongside the robust GRP (Glass Reinforced Plastic) technology used which comes with 20+ years of warranty and their wealth of experience and expertise gained over 20 years.


And the modernisations don’t stop there – PTA UK offers an array of options to enhance new and existing systems such as energy free alternatives (solar powered control panels), options for carbon neutral wastewater treatment and percolation/infiltration through their Ecoflo product. They also offer the ability for tank combination to accommodate drainage for extensively large hard surfaces and telemetry on all Separator Alarm Systems.


The concept of sustainable water management remains a major driving force across the UK construction industry. Extreme rainfall driven by climate change is becoming more frequent and in response, global water management leaders such as Premier Tech Aqua UK continue to invest in research and development to progress new, more efficient and innovative solutions to tackle global issues and create a sustainable, managed future.


World leader in onsite and decentralized wastewater treatment, water storage and rain water harvesting solutions, Premier Tech Aqua specializes in the design and manufacturing of innovative and durable solutions.
