I am looking for a solution to draining storm water at the back of my garden (which is on high ground), perhaps creating a dry well.
I have had a drain survey which has shown a few problems so now need to get some more quotes for fixing the issues (I have pictures that provide more details which are referenced but not sure if I can upload these to rated people) which are:
Displaced joint which is located just at the wall of the property where the 4” clay pipe connects to a 4” cast iron pipe (picture 1, position 1).
Holes in the pipe in 2 areas of the pipe roof (picture 2, position 2 and 3).
The stretch of pipework leading towards the main sewer is 6” and the survey showed that the three main joints along this pipe had well established root ingression (picture 3, positions 5, 6 and 7).
There is an access chamber at position 4.
The cast iron pipe under the house wall (position 1) is accessible under the house though it does go through the house wall and may need replaced. Survey didn't indicate this but looking at the section under the house it looks worn. This joins to plastic pipes under the house.
The red sections of pipe are below a layer of chippings and presumably soil. The black sections of pipe are below concrete for a section and then tarmac for the drive.
I also think that the storm pipes were not looked at but have not had the details back on this. so these may also need inspected.
Our septic tank needs to be emptied.
My house has a septic tank that was emptied last year (2011). We have an ensuite bathroom on the first floor that has started smelling very bad. We also have a shower room on the ground floor that has started backing up with water so we're worried we either have a blockage and / or a vent pipe issue. Please could I have a quote for a visit and an estimate of the repair / maintenance required. Thank you.

the previous house owner mono-blocked the back yard. However whenever there is heavy rain the yard can flood up to a couple of inches. The yard has a slope and I would like a soakaway or drain fitted to the existing drains at the lower end to take away excess water when there is heavy rain.
I am looking to convert my existing septic tank and soakaway into a treatment plant by installing a conversion unit - I want the system to take up far less of my garden so that I can utilise it better. Price would include the parts required
