New rules regarding your Septic Tanks

August 6th, 2019

As a homeowner you will be familiar with maintaining your home every now and again, the same applies for your septic tank should you have one.

Your septic tank must be maintained correctly. If the tank becomes a problem for other members of the public, your local council or authority can and will get involved, insisting that it be properly cleaned. If you have a permit for your tank, this will also outline set conditions that you will have to make sure you meet.

To meet these conditions, GOV.UK guidance explains that your should make sure the septic tank is emptied at least once a year by a registered waste carrier, here at JOHN WALL DRAINAGE SERVICE LIMITED we are able to provide this service for you.

Gutter Cleaning

July 8th, 2019

Let’s be honest – the topic of #gutter cleaning is far from being a fascinating subject. Most people would not even think about looking after their gutter system until they stop working properly.

The truth is, #gutters on your home or business serve a critical service.

Clogged gutters are the number one cause of basement water problems in your home or business.  #Roof water overflows and accumulates around the foundation.  If this happens, basement leaks may be moments away and excess water against the foundation can weaken the footings and lead to cracks, something you NEVER want to happen.

#Cesspit Maintenance

June 17th, 2019

Maintaining your #cesspit is essential, not just for your household but for your local council authority too.

A common problem with#cesspits is overflowing, which can cause issues regarding cracked walls and punctures, which may lead to external leaks. Unlike #septic tanks, a #cesspit has no rudimentary treatment system, which means that whatever goes in must come out. under the public health act and water resources act your local council authority has a duty to ensure your #cesspit is in good working order, routine inspections are commonplace throughout the UK.

Do’s and Do not’s regarding cesspit maintenance

Never lift the lid of your #cesspit to check levels, inside there are a whole lot of nasty’s, make sure you have an alarm fitted within your pit.

Cesspits are often located in areas where other #sewage solutions are just not practical. Make sure your cesspit is located at least 15 metres away from any outbuilding and not less than 10 metres from any #watercourse.

Do not place heavy objects above #manhole covers.

Do not drive over any cesspit covers, especially old brick-built pits.

Here at #John Wall Drainage Service Limited we can provide you with a waste removal service, with all duty of care documentation provided. For your FREE quotation contact our Sales Team on 0151 495 1929.

School Drainage Maintenance

June 10th, 2019

Playgrounds, car parks and large roof areas have to deal with large volumes of rain water often in a short space of time, therefore if gullies, road gullies and linear channel drains are not maintained and cleaned, the water run off cannot make it into the below ground drainage system and you get localised flooding. A natural build up of silt and debris over time will cause blockages in grids and gullies situated in playgrounds, however, aluminium cans, crisp packets, plastic bottles and tennis balls are also common place, the silt from large hard standing can also build up with the below ground drainage system leading to restricted flow. Here at John Wall Drainage Service Limited we can arrange a planned preventative maintenance schedule, where we can come and clean the drainage for you once or twice a year (depending on the size of the School), remove all the debris from the drainage and the high pressure water the drainage to ensure it is all running clear and free. For further information please contact us on 0151 495 1929.
