Thanks Nicolas

But it turned into a bit of an emergency situation and we called out Allo+ Depannage in Cagnes sur Mer, who turned up in the afternoon and are returning this morning with sludge gulper equipment etc.

Howzat for quick service ?

My concern now is that we have discovered the tank is underneath the lawn and covered by grass - not even a manhole cover to mark the spot.

What are the rules and reg's for siting septic tanks ?

Kind Regards

Hi Carole,

It depends where you live, I use SOTAME they're a company in Cannes La Bocca I think, they come and empty mine every 3 or 4 years, it's quite expensive though. I think the last visit cost me about the equivalent to 1350FF. There number is 04 92 19 68 68.They do servicing aswell.

Best of luck
