Soakaway Crates Not Allowed for Foul Drainage

Crates Not Allowed for Foul Drainage

The Environment Agency has confirmed to us that soakaway crates, tunnels, etc are NOT allowed for septic tank and sewage treatment plant soakaways.
Their position is that if the soakaway design does not comply with BS6297 2007 +A1 2008 and Section H2 Building Regulations, then it is not permissable.

Soakaway crates do not comply and are only for rain and surface water soakaways.
Don't get advice from Cowboy Traders.

Funny email snippets received this month

You just can't make them up!

"The toilet is blocked and we cannot bath the children until it is cleared."

"Will you please send a man to look at my water, it is a funny colour and not fit to drink"

"Our lavatory seat is broken in half and now is in three pieces."

"Our drain is leaking and our kitchen floor is damp. We have two children and would like a third, so please send someone round to do something about it."

"Please send a man with a big digger to finish the job and satisfy my wife.."

" My sewage plant is in the shrubbery, but my bush is really overgrown round the front and I'm worried that the air can't get to it and it will smell"

"My drains at the back are broken and my back passage has fungus growing all over it"
