If you have any questions or comments about the content you have found on the site, please get in touch. While we’ve tried to keep everything as up to date as possible we are only human.
We aim to get back to you on the same working day as you get in contact with us. However due to our unique customer positioning and honest approach we are super busy so please bear with us.
We are all passionate about the environment and are really excited about the change in the law in 2020. The law will prevent sewage being pumped into our rivers and streams. It will be really nice to be able to swim and use the rivers again without fear of getting poisoned.

SEPTIC TANK PROBLEMS:
Give us a call we may be able to help you over the phone. Failing that for more complicated issues we can dispatch an engineer to investigate. Please also have a look at our Problems page, this has some easy-to-follow steps for identifying and rectifying issues. Problems really fall into three categories, inlet issues such as a blocked or collapsed pipe. Tank issues, are generally structural in nature, meaning they leak. And, Outlet issues, such as a blocked or failed soakaway.
SEPTIC TANK MAINTENANCE:
Legally you have to have your tank serviced annually and emptied to avoid any pollution. We can help you here and offer a no-fuss annual servicing plan. Generally, the dirty side of a Septic Tank has a capacity of around 800 to 1,500 gallons. This can be recovered be a normal empty truck and will cost (in the South of England) £135 to £185. Always check that when the tank has been emptied that your T-Pieces have not been dislodged, especially on the outlet. This will help prevent any irreparable damage to your discharge.
What does a waste treatment plant do?
A treatment plant processes waste to a far higher standard than a septic tank installation. It effectively combines the process of both an old Septic Tank and its drainage field. Effluent is typically clear between 96% and 98% pure water and can be offloaded into a ditch or watercourse. From the 1st of January 2020 no Septic Tank system can be discharged directly to a ditch or watercourse. Given the challenge with soil type, the water table, and access many Hampshire Properties currently discharge to a ditch or watercourse. If you are unsure please give us a call and we will arrange for an engineer to visit and check your existing system. Just to note that if you want a more thorough written evaluation of systems compliance a survey will need to be undertaken, please see our survey page.
Although standard treatment plants use gravity to operate some will require an additional pumping system. Again this is very common because of the unique challenges the geology of Hampshire provides. This is particularly the case in areas with a high water table or clay-type soils. The new regulation requires all owners of Septic tanks and Sewage Treatment plants to have annual services and effluent checks, this can prove crucial when coming to sell your property. Again get in contact if you have any questions.
