Best Practice

Drainage is a forgotten entity for most people. It’s a case of out of mind, out of sight. But, when something does go wrong with your drainage, you definitely won’t be able to ignore it.

Don’t worry. We’re here to help. Lanes is a one-stop shop for all drainage solutions and requirements.

And, believing that prevention is better than cure, we’ve produced our Best Practice Guides to highlight common drainage issues.

The Best Practice series cover an array of topics, from the initial drainage installation, set by on-site groundworkers, to septic tanks and cesspits.

We offer advice on all the necessary dos and don’ts, with best practice information for maintenance, installation and problem prevention. We aim to equip you with knowledge and understanding, so that you can reduce the risk of drainage disasters adversely affecting your staff, customers, tenants, patients and families — and ultimately your business.

These Best Practice Guides also give a basic insight into the relevant legislation such as the septic tank sewage treatment plant legislation implemented as law from 1st January 2015, and more.

Each guide offers details specific to the sector and / or the topic it covers, so that you’re able to put in place a plan that works for you.
