Our drainage services

Odour, flooding and pollution are the most common issues with septic tanks, and may be caused by inadequate maintenance or faulty installation or drainage problems.

Ground conditions should be suitable for a soakaway to work properly: if the surrounding earth is not permeable enough (eg clay), the effluent discharge will not ‘soak-away’, ultimately backing up into the tank. We can test to establish whether this is an issue, and Lanes can help you with that. Naturally, a septic tank’s capacity should also be appropriate to the population it serves (ie number of people in the house).
