Septic Tank Discharge Into Ditch

Septic Tank Discharge Into Ditch

From the 1st of January 2020 septic tanks that discharge into a ditch will become illegal.

This is because septic tanks do not treat raw sewage. Raw sewage goes in and raw sewage comes out.

Because of the pollution associated with raw sewage the UK Government are making this type of discharge illegal.

If your septic tank discharges into a ditch you have 2 options. You can replace your entire septic tank, which can cost anywhere from £15,000-£25,000.

Or you can fit a septic tank conversion unit.

A septic tank conversion unit converts the raw sewage from your septic tank into clean water. The Eco System septic tank converter is not only affordable and easy to install. It is also Government approved.
