"Would depend on the property, have you connected to the main wastewater pipeline? also, the degrees of home as water with no pressure can not travel even 1% uphill. if you are in the countryside I would dig a gravel-filled trench into a large soakaway which will slowly release water into the ground without making your garden boggy.I hope I understood your question correctly"

"Sustainable drainage systems (SuDS) are a natural approach to managing drainage in and around properties and other developments. SuDS work by slowing and holding back the water that runs off from a site, allowing natural processes to break down pollutants."
