Old Style soakaways allow roots to grow and build up over many years
We recommend leaf guards on gutters / down pipes if you have tree's near by, once the pipe is blocked and filled with roots the only way is to replace the
pipe and possibly have a new soakaway constructed.
we recommend regular maintenance checks to prevent such problems before they become emergencies. A regular CCTV inspection by feeding a camera down your drains, can check to ensure there
is no build up or blockage which could become a long term problem.
