Septic Tank and Soakaway evaluations across South England

Evaluations and Advice on Sewage Systems and Piping

The ‘pro’ in Proseptic stands for ‘professional’. With over 25 years in the industry and a combined 60 years of managerial experience, our teams are well-equipped to handle any situation.

We know that what we see on the surface does not tell us the full story. This is why we carry out comprehensive surveys of the entire drainage and sewerage system, including any adjoining systems and under-house piping.

When Should an Inspection or Survey be carried out?

When signs of an issue arise

As septic tanks and sewage treatment systems are usually buried away from the house and are marked only by a manhole cover, they can tend to be forgotten about except during the annual emptying and maintenance visits. However, when something goes wrong within the septic tank or sewage treatment system, it can cause health issues, structural damage. Plus, the ensuing odours and leakage may cause issues with neighbours. If you begin to notice saturated, wet or squishy ground surrounding the system, dead grass or unusually strong odours, it is time to call us to book an investigation.

When you are buying a new house with a non-mains sewage system

We offer [new home buyer’s surveys] (link) to anybody purchasing a property with an independent sewerage system. This is recommended for any new home owner. However, for those people who have never experienced non-mains connected sewage systems, we can offer advice and put your mind at rest about any concerns you may have. We understand that these systems are not part of everyday life for many people and the sudden responsibility can even hold people back from buying their dream property.
