Soakaway drainage experts based in Northern Ireland

Avoid your water clogging

An increased volume of waste can affect your whole system. Soakaways are only designed to cope with a certain amount in a day, and an overload could result in a build=up of waste. The soakaway drainage experts at Master Blaster N.I. can help.

Your soakaway could be affected jun the following ways:

  • If the water table in the surrounding soils becomes too high, the effluent will go straight into the water table without being adequately treated first.
  • If a partnering septic tank fails, raw effluent can start to flow into the soakaway, which could collapse the whole system.
  • If the soakaway has been installed in an area of clay-based soil, the water will not be able to pass out and into the land.
  • Surrounding trees and shrubs can cause septic tank soakaway problems and can lead to root ingress, damaging the system’s structure and creating a blocked soakaway.
  • The effectiveness of a soakaway’s structure can be reduced if a vehicle or heavy machinery moves over the system. This is because the surrounding soil can get compacted, which will reduce its permeability.

Specialist advice on the cause of damage

A soakaway needs to be installed at a depth where aerobic bacteria are found. Any deeper than this, and the bacteria found tends to be anaerobic and may produce a black slimy substance that can potentially block the soakaway and affect the porosity of the surrounding soil. If there are high sodium levels in the surrounding ground, then this can cause clay particles within the soil to build up. This can create a waterproof layer around the system, blocking the liquid effluent from dispersing into the surrounding area.

You can contact the soakaway drainage experts at Master Blaster N.I. for specialist advice on your cause of damage and recommendations for an efficient solution to the problem.


Attended the same day (earlier than they initially said) and were extremely helpful and got the job done quickly. Went the extra mile to check the pipes using the camera to ensure all was good. Highly recommended!!

Having recently used Master Blaster’s services I would highly recommend them, they carried out a septic tank survey on a property I’m purchasing. The inspection was carried out very promptly for me and it was thorough and so professional. The report results were prepared within two days which was extremely helpful .
Pauline and Philip were immensely helpful with any queries I had and they were so friendly.
