    "Hi

    Sounds as if you’ve a blockage and / or the system is overwhelmed.

    Maybe best to get the drains jetted / rodded out.

    Thanks Rob"

    if its old its probably silted up and needs replacing
    best to put it anther area or dig old pipe out and replace
    with new pipes its probably tree roots buckland plant"

    "You could have a blockage in the discharge pipe? You would be best to get someone out to have a look if the tank is compliant with the new regulations because if it discharges to a soakaway and there is a blockage you would have to look at getting a drainage field installed anyway as a Soakaway is now non compliant. If it discharges to a watercourse then you will definitely have to get the system changed. You can find the new regulations on the government website."

    "What sort of tank are you in ownership of?
    Brick built or modern gpu plastic?
    If it's brick built then maybe your clinker bed needs cleaning out or you have a toilet or tap that's broken and is on constantly hence the quick filling of your tank.
    Or the tanker guys said they emptied it and they didn't."

    "You might have a blockage. We recommend a CCTV survey to find out the source of the issue. Let me know if this is something you would be interested in."

    "Your soakaway is compromised, which basically means it is not accepting any water.
    You require a percolation test to determine the sizing of your new soakaway/drain field."
