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.
