  1. hi all, just wondering if anyone has used a viltra treatment plant simon
  2. I'm hoping for some shared knowledge please being a complete newbie. We are in the process of buying a plot with a barn on that needs renovating. It has PP and the plans state 'foul water drain leading to new bio treatment unit' we have seen a tap on site too. Can I assume we will not need to connect to the main sewerage system? Julie
  3. Just been looking at drains layouts and I have a query. How long is too long from a WC to a mains drain..? Given this is a part conversion and part extension, its going to have to be an external soil stack as I've got no reasonable internal route and as it is I can insulate the stack entry points to minimise losses. Currently, the longest WC run is as follows : WC to Stack - 5.2m Stack to IC 1 - 8m IC1 to IC2 - 21.5m (22 degree slow bend at 6m) IC2 to Main Sewer - 6m I have plenty of ability to create a gradient, and the last IC2 will have a back drop as it will need to drop around 2.2m currently. Question is - is that too long and will it create problems..? IC1 is only to create an access point and a 45 degree turn - the rest is in 110mm uPVC and all showers, WCs and kitchen etc will use the same run, mostly joining either at the stack or with 1m of the stack bottom. Thoughts..??
