What is a cavity drain system?

A Cavity Drain Membrane System is a Type C Waterproofing solution. The concept of a Drained Cavity System is to collect and manage any ground water which breaches the integrity of a structure by managing, collecting and discharging such free water via a suitable evacuation point such as a Delta Package Pump Station.

What is Channel?

Delta Channel is a water collection conduit designed to control water ingress in below ground applications.

What is Free Lime?

In the form of calcium hydroxide (free lime). If untreated, this free lime can enter a cavity drainage system, which can impede the flow of water and cause sump pump failure.

BS8102:2009
