Is my system likely to fail?

The systems most likely to fail are

  • those that fail to collect all used water as this negates the “Fosse Toutes Eaux” requirement
  • systems which cannot be located as they will be deemed as having no system at all (if this is the case speak to neighbours, previous owners anybody as they may be able to help)
  • septic tanks without an effective filtration system (make sure that your system is well maintained, de-sludge it or look at replacing your filter matter as this could be cheaper than replacing the whole system) as they are unlikely to met the latest European or French standards for purification.
