Common Septic Tank and Soakaway issues and problems

The most common  Septic Tank and Soakaway problems often occur after periods of sustained wet weather. The results can manifest themselves as puddles on your lawn, slow flushing toilets, gurgling drains, strong effluent smells and even overflowing effluent. If this is happening please get in contact. We can chat through the issues and if necessary get someone out for a free evaluation.

All Septic Tanks and their Soakaways have problems at some point. If you have a fibre glass or brick Septic tank or Sewerage treatment plant the issue is likely with your Soakaway. Soakaways inevitably become clogged, the speed at which they fail is due to several factors. Again feel free to give us a call or if you want to look at the problem sections of our website.    

The Law. Anyone who has a private drainage solution needs to be aware of the upcoming changes in the law from 2020. Any septic tanks whose effluent drains into ditches or streams, directly,or by mistake, must be replaced. The Septic Tank must be replaced with a sewage treatment plant by 1 January 2020, or before this date if you are selling your property. If you are worried by this or want to chat it through have a look at our dedicated page or again get in contact.

Septic Tanks & Sewage Treatment Plants:

Firstly the difference between a Septic Tank and a Sewage Treatment plant. A septic tanks effluent is discharged to a soakaway for treatment of pollutants by natural aerobic bacteria. A sewage treatment plant produces a clean, non-polluting effluent. The effluent can be discharged directly to a stream ditch, watercourse or to a soakaway for emission to the soil. The two terms are used interchangeably by the industry. Due to legislation change, the future is all to do with sewage treatment plants. We install, inspect, repair and service these plants as well as dealing with Septic Tank problems.

Septic tanks do not require electricity, but most sewage treatment plants do. Septic tank systems do not require actual servicing, but sewage treatment plants do. We provide servicing which will soon be a legal requirement, check out our servicing plans.  

Soakaway replacement, repair and evaluation

Soakaways fail, they become clogged and this then causes issues and potentially damage to your septic tank, cesspit or sewerage treatment plant. Basically the longer you leave it the more damage is likely to occur. We will happily come and check it out for free and let you know without any hard sell. 

We are experts in this field and unlike some of our competitors we adhere to Environment Agency General Binding Rules. This means we do not use borehole Soakaways, Soakaway Crates and Tunnels. These are not allowed for septic tank or  sewage effluent, only for rainwater. Be careful of firms offering these solutions, it is best to give us a call or get in contact.

Private Drainage Issues and Blockages

Many homes in the New Forest as well as in Hampshire, Dorset and Wiltshire are connected to mains sewage via a private connection. From time to time these connections encounter problems and issues . These require maintenance, repair and in some cases replacement. All of our engineers are experts at dealing with these issues. 

Since 2011 homeowners are generally only responsible for the drain serving your property and located within your property boundary. (Check DEFRA &  Ofwat website details.). So if you have a drainage problem, blockage or concern please get in contact. 

New Forest Philosophy

As we have said Homeseptic is based in the New Forest. A great location in between the cities of Southampton, Salisbury and Bournemouth. We are a group of good friends who grew up together in the area.  Individually we all have grown tired of the way other Drainage firms are run. As a result this is why we set up Homeseptic.

We want to actually put the customer first and turn up to do a great job that we can be proud of. Unfortunately this is not the case in the market, with most companies pressuring their workers to sell unnecessary works on a visit. Due to this we offer upfront quotations with any variations discussed before we start work.

We are honest hardworking professionals, which we hope you will agree with. As a result will certainly not turn up in flash sales vehicles and give you a load of chat and then do a terrible job. Out team will come with the job in mind and  the aim of giving you the best value we can in order to facilitate a quality installation. 

We cover all of Hampshire, West Sussex, Dorset, Somerset and Wiltshire. Please get in touch and see what you think.
