Installing a septic tank is a complicated and involved project. There are numerous rules and regulations surrounding septic tanks covering everything – from where it can be situated, to where the waste water must go once it leaves the septic tank (you can read more about septic tank regulations in our article which explains them all for you).

It is no longer legal to discharge the waste water from a septic tank straight to a watercourse or ditch, so it can only go to a soakaway or drainage field. Calculating the format and size of soakaway system is crucial in avoiding any septic tank problems in future, and often needs percolation tests undertaken to make sure that the ground is suitable.
