Unfortunately, even the best-maintained septic tanks and treatment plants fail and need replacing. Growing tree roots, old brickwork and shifting ground, for instance, can all cause irreparable damage to soakaways and pipework. So, if you are moving into an old or neglected rural property, you may have no choice but to fit a new system just to cope with modern life.

If you need a new septic tank or treatment plant, we can carry out all the groundworks, including the fitting of soakaways and drainage systems.

Time for a replacement?

Our engineers can specify the best treatment plant for you and advise on where to locate it.

In the past, people could go years without emptying their septic tanks but you can’t do that anymore when they are filled up so fast by water from baths, washing machines and dishwashers. Not only that, but the soaps, bleaches, detergents and cleaners we now use stop sewage-eating bacteria from working, so solids and sludges don’t get broken down and build up to cause blockages.

A complete installation service

So, if you suspect you have a problem with your existing septic tank because of a smell or overflow, call us and we can advise you on the best solution.

We can then carry out all the ground works and installation, liaising with the local council and other authorities to ensure your new system complies with building regulations and the Environment Agency’s new rules on the disposal of liquid waste and sewage.
