A soakaway system enables liquid waste to absorb into the soil surrounding your drainage system, reducing stress on the system due to excess liquid waste. Soakaway systems are a great means of managing sewage liquid if the nearby soil is able to absorb the waste efficiently, although they nonetheless require regular cleaning and maintenance if they are to operate effectively.
There are a number of factors which can negatively affect your soakaway system if not tended to, including:
- Poor absorption
- Roots growing into the system
- Drain blockages
- Poor maintenance
