Is your system compliant?
Does your system comply with the new 2015 general binding rules?
Is your current septic tank discharging to a watercourse?
We can carry out a survey of your current system to check all this and more.
This information will be needed if you are selling or buying a house and is asked for by the solicitors.
Drain Wizard can install a new treatment plant that allows you to discharge to a watercourse.
A permit is not required at present, as long as the discharge is not above 5 cubic metres a day.
We also install new drainage fields for septic tanks.
A percolation test on the ground/soil will be required to calculate the size of the new drainage field required for the property size. The test takes two days.
To meet building regulations, a new drainage field should be at least 10m metres from any watercourse, and 50 m from borehole, spring, or other source of water supply intended for human consumption.
