Case Study 9
We were asked to undertake a CCTV survey prior to the purchase of a period thatched cottage in a beautiful setting with a stream running alongside. The existing drainage system consisted of a vastly undersized old tank with a discharge to the stream. It was clearly not fit for purpose and did not not comply with regulations. We were asked to recommend a suitable sewage treatment plant with a discharge clean enough to enter the stream.
The garden was in very good condition and of substantial size, unfortunately the access was restricted. The potential purchaser was keen to have a high quality eco-friendly unit so we recommended a BIOROCK unit. These are extremely green and do not require an electrical supply. The digger was squeezed through into the garden and the treatment plant was lifted over a dry stone wall. The garden was protected with boards and there was not a mark on the immaculate lawn. Our engineers installed the unit, the machinery was taken away and the area around the new tank was re-instated. As they were putting in the finishing touches the new purchaser arrived on site and asked when the installation was going to take place. He was delighted to find that it was in and working!
