Sewage Treatment Plants & Septic Tanks

Septic tank soakaways

A septic tank soakaway needs to be minimum 30 metres long. Here is a sockaway we installed many years ago which is still working nicely. This soakway took 5 tonne of 40mm clean stone

Often septic tank problems stem from the soakaway expiring. These soakaways tend to have a maximum lifetime of 20 to 40 years if installed correctly. Incorrectly installed soakaways will be costly and time consuming in the long run. This is very much where the adage “buy cheap, buy twice” applies.

We install foul soakaways by digging a half a metre wide trench 300mm deeper than the soakaway pipe. We then fill the trench with 40mm clean stone laying the soakaway pipe amongst the stone. The soakaway pipe is regular 110mm diameter pipe with slits but into the bottom half of the pipe. A permeable layer protects the void space created by the 40mm stone and the ground is made good. Soakaways can be designed to be any shape from one trench to a herringbone closed loop system.

With over 20 years of experience at installing soakaways we calculate the correct length of soakaway based on percolation tests and then recommend the size of soakaway which will last.

We correctly specify and design foul soakaways so that you will only ever have to install one of these once. We have not had any problems with our soakaways which were installed over 20 years ago.

Septic tank and sewage treatment plant installation

Sometimes your septic tank will need to be replaced by a treatment plant. This is the often the case if there are problems with high groundwater in your area or if your tank has been damaged. Treatment plants can legally discharge into a stream, river or ditch and so are superior to septic tanks.

We can not only design and install a new system but we can help with any potential claims on your buildings insurance. We have been helping our customers claim for new treatment plants on their insurance for a variety of reasons. It would be very unlikely that you would be successful in claiming from your buildings insurance for an off mains solution without our expertise, reports and contact with the loss adjustors.

See Drainage insurance claims page

New treatment plant ready for installation under the ground

New treatment plant ready for installation under the ground

We have installed many different septic tanks and treatment plants with great success. We consider and deal with all of the planning before starting the project such as building regulation approval, consent to discharge, using trusted “part P” qualified electricians, installing the tank in high groundwater conditions and tank sizing depending on usage.

We will excavate and remove roughly 20 tonnes of earth to install a new tank and make sure this is removed. The tank will either be anchored in the hole using concrete or concreted to the top if there is a high groundwater issue. All the ground will be protected from the 5 tonne digger and dumper using ground boards. Any turf will be carefully removed and replaced on completion. The only thing that will be seen on completion is a manhole cover which is access for the new tank.

On completion you will have a correctly installed tank which if maintained correctly will last an incredibly long time. We also provide maintenance contracts for all sewage treatment plants on completion.
