Domestic Septic Tank Installation

Septictank 3D

Installing a septic tank is an essential wastewater management option for isolated properties or those unable to connect to the public sewer system. But the process of installing one can be complex, and must take into account factors such as geology and ground conditions.

At Lanes for Drains, we can offer a full range of support services to help householders to install their septic tank efficiently with minimum disruption. Our dedicated teams have been doing this since day one, so you can be sure you’re in expert hands.

Assessment, surveying and procurement

Lanes is an ideal partner to identify the best location for your septic tank, and to find the right unit to meet your needs.

We will specify a location that won’t interfere with your existing infrastructure, and will accommodate a sufficiently-sized drainage field. We will also source the right model and size of tank, based on the likely wastewater output of your property.

Lanes is happy to be involved with any part of the process, from specifying and sourcing the tank, to installing and maintaining it.

Installation and maintenance services

With depots across the country, we’re able to send our technicians out to homes anywhere in the UK to provide professional septic tank installation that complies fully with all current regulations.

Installing your septic tank isn’t the end of our talents. We offer ongoing service maintenance agreements for regular emptying of tanks in the longer term. We will, of course, also give you advice and maintenance tips on how to avoid back-ups, blockages and odour issues in the future.

Further information

You need to be aware that legislation came into effect in January 2020 prohibiting septic tanks from discharging directly into a watercourse, regardless of whether you are a new or existing septic tank owner.

To comply with these new rules, you will need to connect to the main sewer network, set up a drainage field or convert your tank into a sewage treatment plant. Failure to do so could result in a fine of up to £100,000 so it is vital to make sure your property is fully compliant.

To make sure you are in the know and have all the latest up-to-date information, consult the official government guidance. You can also check out the Lanes guide to the essentials of septic tank maintenance, or download our septic tank best practice guide.
