Winchester Soakaway Experts

All homes rely on a fully functional drainage system that facilitates the flow of waste from our properties and ensures that our utilities remain hygienic. A lot of the solid waste materials fed into your pipes will end up in a septic tank, whereas the surrounding water continues on to a soakaway. This is a crucial aspect of all drainage setups and is one that should only be fitted by a team of proven drainage experts.

Here at No1 PHD, our staff in Winchester are experts in all areas and types of drainage, and are confident in being able to fix blocked pipes, pitch fibre drains, and a whole host more. We are always available to discuss our services in detail, so contact us today if you’re interested in our soakaway drainage services, from repairs to Winchester soakaway installations.

What Are Soakaways?

Most of your drainage system is built into your property. Soakaways, however, are an area away from your home that collects the excess rain and wastewater that flows from your septic tank. As solid materials, such as food, make up the bulk of what is in this tank, any water that resides in it pass through to make more room. This water flows through to your soakaway, where it is then dispersed back into the ground tank installation. Rain water only soakaways are quite common, as these just capture excess water runoff into a soakaway tank usually dug into the ground.

If you drainage system in your home cannot cope with the volume of waste being produced, then you must have a soakaway. Not only do these utilities ease the flow of water in the latter stages of your drainage cycle, but they also provide valuable room in your septic tank. If you already have a soakaway, it must be checked every so often to ensure that water from your tank is being dispersed correctly. Maintenance in the form of cleaning will make sure that it continues to function properly.

However, there are several issues that can arise in soakaways that homeowners should be aware of. If you notice any of the signs outlined below, then it might be time to reach out to a team of drainage experts:

After noticing that the house was unusually cold, we found that the heating wasn’t coming on and that our hot water had also failed. We called the team at No 1 PHD who dispatched an engineer to investigate. After discovering that the culprit was a faulty boiler part, they ordered in a new part and got it fitted as quickly as possible. The guys were great, and we couldn’t be happier.

For days, we’ve noticed a foul smell coming from outside and a gurgling sound coming from one of the drains. Whenever it would rain, the area around it would flood slightly and take ages to drain. We tried buying drain unblockers, but none seemed effective. Eventually, we turned to No 1 PHD and were left wondering why we didn’t do this sooner.
