The SPEL Advantage

3 reasons why you should choose SPEL for your next stormwater treatment device.

1. Tank Design

Traditional concrete stormwater treatment tanks are difficult to work with for many reasons…

  • They require multiple piece assemblage.
  • They are much heavier than fibreglass tanks; large cranage is always required.
  • There is no guarantee against leaching over the lifespan of the tank.
  • They requires joins and seals.

In contrast, SPEL’s fibreglass stormwater treatment tanks:

  • Are one-piece design with no site assemblage
  • Are extremely light; lifting can be performed by existing site machinery such as an excavator.
  • Come with a guarantee of no leaching for the entire lifespan of the project.
  • Have no joins and seals.

2. Tank Installation

Whilst a concrete tanks’ lengthy installation requires multiple deliveries and a large crane to lift the pieces into place, the implementation of a SPEL stormwater treatment device is quick and efficient — your fibreglass tank will arrive complete in just one delivery!

3. Tank Orientation

Concrete stormwater treatment tanks require a large trench depth of at least 3 metres, and this can add significantly to construction costs.

SPEL’s fibreglass stormwater treatment devices have a compact design, translating to a shallower trench depth and shorter invert level — and money saved.
