Sewerage and Drains

Septic Tank, Sewerage and Drains

Q- We have been offered a plot that is ideal for our purposes but the only drawback is that the main sewer is 300 metre away over a field that we would own so we may have to install a septic tank. What should it cost to lay a pipe to the sewer and how would that compare to a septic tank?

A - It should cost about £9,000 to install a septic tank depending upon the type you go for.. A trench for a 100mm drain including excavation, bedding and surrounding should cost about £50 per linear metre so that equates to £15,000 in your case. So the cheaper option is the septic tank but bear in mind that a house connected to a main drainage system is easier to sell than one with a septic tank.
