New Septic Tank Regulations Under The General Binding Rules

May 17th, 2019

New septic tank rules came into force on 1 January 2015. If your septic tank system was installed and in use before 31 December 2014, it is classed as an ‘existing discharge’. If it was installed and in use after that date, it is classed as a ‘new discharge’

Rules for both existing and new septic tank discharges in England.

Septic tanks settle the solids in the sewage ad then discharge the liquid septic effluent to ground via a correctly designed and constructed drainage field – not a soakaway pit, soakaway crates, tunnels of ezy drain. These are not allowed for sewage effluent dispersal.

They cannot discharge into ditches, streams, rivers, surface water drains or any other type of watercourse. Under the new Environment Agency General BindingRules, if you have a septic tank that discharges directly to a surface water (ditch, stream,river etc) you must replace or upgrade your septic tank treament system to a full sewage treatment plant by 1 January 2020 or when you sell your property, if it is before this date. All septic tanks that currently ultimately discharge into watercourses will have to be either;

Replaced using a sewage treatment plant with full BS EN 12566-3 Certification instead or the discharge to the watercourse stopped and diverted to a drainfield, designed and constructed to the current British Standard BS6297 2007.

School drainage maintenance

May 14th, 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.

Listeria control

May 7th, 2019


If Listeria is present in your food production facility, it will most likely be found in your drains. The reason for this is that drains act as a collection points for most of the Listeria-contaminated water on site, and then provide the nutrients and moisture required for the Listeria to grow.

Even though cleaning drains is an unpleasant and complex task, it is critical for Listeria control. Dirty drains can be a source of Listeria contamination, and flooded drains can spread listeria via pools of contaminated water on the floor. Drains should (if possible) only be cleaned during production downtime, and you’ll need to give aerosols time to settle before rinsing and disinfecting your food contact surfaces. For more information please contact us 0151 495 1929.

Root removal

April 29th, 2019

Roots are always searching for water, oxygen and nutrients. As pipes, especially drainage systems contain plenty of these things, roots will readily infiltrate the drains where possible. Where a root system has started to grow inside a pipe there is a chance that debris such as tissue paper, fats etc. can become stuck and cause the pipe to flow slower.  Using our specialist root cutting equipment we are able to remove these roots to prevent further blockages, to find out more information on our root removal service please contact us on 0151 495 1929.

New rules regarding septic tanks

April 15th, 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.

Under new legislation, if your septic tank discharges to surface water, you will need to install a small sewage treatment plant which cleans the liquid before it goes into the river or stream. This must be completed before 1st January 2020, or when you sell the property, whichever is soonest.

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.
