Climate change is resulting in increasingly extreme weather. Long periods of drought alternate with short but heavy rain showers. The drainage and buffering of rainwater requires a different approach.
The Drainline, made from recycled plastic that is held together with a special binder, looks like a regular tile, but has a very high permeability, unlike its normal counterparts. Water can pass through, but leaves and dirt cannot; they remain on the surface. In the current situation, rainwater often ends up in the buffer storage via grids and settling pits. As a result, the buffer storage for water becomes smaller over time and is filled with dirt such as leaves and sand.
With this test area, DrainLine wants to test the infiltration capacity and filtering of the rainwater. In addition, it will also be examined how the weather conditions affect the quality of the product.
