Your first choice for soakaways and septic tanks

Whether you are looking to replace an existing soakaway system or need a new soakaway constructed our team are able to assist in assessing your property to determine suitability and, if necessary, recommend suitable alternatives.

A soakaway will be used by most households to provide adequate surface water drainage from the property's gutter system. They are also an integral part of any septic tank system. The soakaway will manage the flow of liquids into the surrounding earth.

When planning a soakaway various aspects need to be taken into account such as soil type and proximity to property boundaries, buildings or roads.

As well as soakaway construction, we are also able to offer specialist advice on soakaway repairs and maintenance.

Eco installed a new septic tank with integral treatment plant

Our experience with Evo plumbing and heating was 1st class from start to finish. Their price was very competitive, they took care to survey carefully and consider all aspects of the job and couldn’t have done more to make sure the minimum of disruption was caused. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them.

Clearance of buried soakaway drain pipe

Fixed price over the telephone so no nasty surprises. Jamie Blount arrived bang on time having texted an ETA earlier - very professional and appreciated. Great job, well done, thank you Will recommend and, if necessary, use again

New soakaway in rear garden including new guttering and down pipe.

The company are obviously experienced in this type of work and provided clear explanation of how each phase would be carried out. Impressed by the efficiency and tidyness of the workmanship.

Clearing of a blocked soakaway drain

The work was done by Jamie Blount in a very efficient , helpful, tidy and informative way. Not a big job but done knowing that it was important to me to get the drain up-blocked asap.

Septic Tanks

For properties that do not have a connection to a mains sewer the septic tank is a very popular sewage treatment process that has been in existence for hundreds of years. The unit separates solid and liquid waste, allowing the liquid to seep into the surrounding earth via a soakaway.

Septic tanks will require maintenance to prevent problems leading to sewage overflowing or soakaways blocking. However, even if the tank is regularly maintained other external factors caused by adverse weather, ground movement, building work or rodent infestation can lead to detrimental performance of your tank.

If you suspect you have a problem with your tank we have experienced technicians who are able identify existing faults and offer an effective solution using the very latest technologies to carry out any repairs with minimal inconvenience and cost to you.

If, for whatever reason, Your existing septic tank no longer fulfils your needs and a new tank is required we are on hand to provide a full installation service, ensuring the new septic tank is the right size and type for you and your family's needs.

Sewage Treatment Plants

Sewage treatment plants are becoming an ever more popular drainage solution for households that are unable to connect to a mains sewage system. They work in a similar manner to a standard septic tank, but the waste effluent is filtered and treated to a far higher standard, meaning the system does not need to connect to a soakaway for filtration.

Our treatment plant experts are able to assist in all aspects, ensuring the right plant solution is chosen and installed conforming to Environment agency standards. Our comprehensive service will include practical advice and maintenance tips as well as swift installation.

Downpipe blocked into soakaway

Very easy to book. Jamie turned up promptly and explained what he was going to do. He had all the dedicated equipment and the problem soon resolved. Very good cleaning away, and a reasonable bill. Would highly recommend

Surface water soakaway for guttering

Steve and his team were fantastic throughout. They were reliable, easy to communicate with, and delivered a brilliant end result. We have been doing extensive renovations and only wished other teams we used worked to the same standard.

Installation of French drain and a new soakaway

EVO organised the work efficiently and were attentive to our needs. Jamie and Steve were punctual, professional and hard working and focussed on the task despite the inclement weather. The project was completed on schedule and at the competitive price agreed. We would recommend EVO and we plan to use the company again in the near future.

Rainwater soakaway

Excellent job carried out in difficult circumstances due to unusually stormy weather. But we are very pleased with the result, and every effort was made to leave the site in a clean and tidy condition. Good organisation and very courteous and regular communication that gave much reassurance throuthout the procedure.

Replace failing soakaway

Harvey and his team were absolutely superb. We had had soakaway issues since we moved in to the property 2 years ago. We had had several failed attempts with other companies, but as soon as EVO arrived on site and did their assessment I knew we were in safe hands. The job was not easy because of the garden layout, but EVO managed to replace the soakaway and carry out a full reinstatement, that, within 2 weeks of completion, you wouldn't have known any work had been done. British workmanship at it's best!

Install new soakaway

Harvey and his team from EVO did a superb job. We'd endured flooding for years, and even had a couple of guys in previously who hadn't been able to sort the issue. From the moment Harvey first arrived on site he seemed to know exactly how to handle the issue, and the results are spectacular. We've had some very heavy rain since the soakaway was installed, and areas that would have previously flooded have remained dry. Such a spectacular difference!

Install new soakaway

We are so grateful to EVO. We had originally employed another company to undertake the work, but were badly let down. After struggling to find another company with the necessary expertise, we contacted EVO drainage following a recommendation from a work colleague. They were professional throughout, and were brilliant for our stress levels. Come highly recommended.

Problem with overflowing soakaway

So pleased that we called out your company to do this job. Harvey found the fault almost immediately and cleared the blockage. Will definitely recommend you to our friends/family.
