Case study: Failed Septic Tank Drainage Field Pipe
Blocked Drainage Field Pipework
Location: Rural property near Newark, Nottinghamshire
The problem: The drainage field to the septic tank had failed
The solution: We installed a new drainage field
Benefit to the client: The septic tank worked as designed
After the clients moved into the property the septic tank backed up causing problems with the drains the toilets.
The exiting septic tank was in good condition and before the drainage field failed it worked well. When the drainage field was exposed it had been installed too deeply leading to the premature failure of the system due to biomass growth in the pipework.
We installed a new drainage field at a shallower depth to the same dimensions as the one originally designed and installed.
