In recent years sewage treatment plants have replaced septic tanks. They clean the wastewater to a high standard and the effluent can be discharged either to a soakaway if the ground conditions are suitable, or to a watercourse, as long as you conform with the rules of the Environment Agency.

Here at FC Drainage, we specialise in the supply and installation of all types of non-mains drainage sewage treatment systems. Whether you need a solution for a single house or larger-scale systems contacting FC Drainage will save you time, money, and stress!

Does your treatment system meet British standards?

Homeowners with septic tanks that discharge directly into ditches, streams, canals, rivers, surface water, drains or any other type of watercourse will need to replace or upgrade their drainage either when they sell their property or before 1 January 2020 whichever is sooner. Locally authorities are planning on implementing penalty charges for non-compliant septic tanks.

What are the costs to upgrade my septic tank to a treatment plant?

Of course, every situation is different and for an accurate quote we would need to come out on a site visit, but on average the cost is around £10,000. Please call us if you would like a free, no-obligation quote for a new treatment plant installation.

At FC Drainage we have competent service engineers to help you with understanding:

  • Treatment system you already have
  • If you are required to upgrade in accordance with the new 2020 legislation
