The Aquaflow SuDS system requires very little maintenance. There are no additional water quality improvement components that require service or replacement. In fact visual inspection and sweeping the surface 2-4 times a year is all it takes. Keeping the surface debris free and clear of contamination will ensure that the Aquaflow surface remains permeable for many years.

Sweeping of the surface can be carried out manually or mechanically depending on the size of the Aquaflow area. Mechanical sweeping should be carried out with the suction feature of the machine turned off. Surface dressing grit that is misplaced by sweeping needs to be replaced to ensure the structural and hydraulic performance of the surface.
