Blocked drains/ septic tanks/wet weather

Post by barismanco on Mon Oct 05, 2015 7:58 am

If any of you are on a septic tank sewage system, please be aware that with all this wet weather, there can be big problems with draining your house waste into the tank. On Friday, our downstairs toilet blocked up, so we called out Drain Master, who finally got to us yesterday late afternoon and looked in the septic tank and said its full. We only had it pumped out in July, but he explained that with all this rain, the soakaway which runs off the tank is just saturated with rain water, so the septic tank overflow has nowhere to go, and they are getting a lot of calls from people whose tanks are filling up with rain water which is filling up the drainage system in reverse, so the house system doesn't flow. As soon as our septic tank was emptied (luckily i know the tank emtying man really well so he got here really quickly), the house system immediately emptied. We were lucky, a woman whose tank he emptied yesterday at 2pm was on the phone saying her tank was full again at 5.30pm just before he left here. He says anglian water are having MAJOR problems and he thinks he will be working all day on the 25th. He will be charging £300 per tank on that day instead of £70, but I cant knock him for that. His phone is ringing non stop.

One of the big problems with off grid sewerage systems is that most set ups also have the rain water drains (roofs & run off) going into the tank. They just don't have the capacity to cope with that.
