Finding out as much detail as possible about your drainage situation.


Here at Avant, we understand that buying a house with an off-mains drainage system can involve a steep learning curve. Septic tanks, cesspools, soakaways; it can be hard to become familiar with all the different terminology and jargon. Sometimes, you just want to know what happens when you flush the toilet!

At Avant we understand this, and our drain survey service exists to help you out. We can look over your setup and tell you in simple terms what you have and what that means. We cover everything from use to maintenance, as we believe getting a survey like this done is an essential part of purchasing a house with an off-mains drainage system.

Legislation in this area often changes, so it is important to know whether you have a septic tank or a sewage treatment plant, and what make and model is installed. Furthermore, an off-mains drainage system can be surprisingly efficient, so we want to make sure you are able to make the most of any savings in this area.

Using the latest technology, we can carry out a drain survey on a property before you have purchased it, enabling you to make the right decision about whether or not to buy. We will guide you through how the system functions and whether or not it complies with current regulations, before advising you on any costs that could be incurred to achieve functioning and legal drainage.

This process has helped us save many of our clients from hidden problems that they wouldn’t have known about before buying their property. In some cases, we have saved people anything from £1,600 up to £26,000!
