Why did the client need our services?
The two cottages were connected to a non-compliant septic tank and Willow Pumps were asked to produce a suitable solution.
What challenges were faced?
The road leading down to the cottages was in constant use, so digging up the road was not an option. We decided to use directional drilling, which meant the road could always be kept open for access.
The residents also wished the pumping station to be disguised as well as possible, and not to reduce the garden space. The chosen solution was to create a small, fenced area for the control kiosk, with the chamber hidden under a new patio.
