Septic Systems Installed & Maintained in Saltford BS31

Saltford Septic Tank Compliance Inspections

Since 2020 the law has stated that if you have a property with a septic tank – or any sort of private waste management system – it must be compliant with the general binding rules. These rules are that the tank cannot be allowed to discharge effluent into a watercourse, like a lake, pond or river.

These rules are especially important in an area like Saltford on the River Avon between the cities of Bristol and Bath. This is because the village of Saltford and the surrounding BS31 postcode area is low-lying and susceptible to flooding. A badly installed septic tank, an outdated septic tank or any type of sewage treatment system with a soakaway or drainage field in Saltford could cause problems if the water table rises.

If you’re worried about the legality and operation of your septic tank in Saltford, as the local drain specialists we offer professional compliance surveys and inspections, along with advice about how to upgrade your private drainage system to make it legal and non-polluting.
