Easiest it to use the yellow pages, pagesjaunes.fr put in your postcode & type in Vidange. When we have to use them we just go for the closest. Cost? usually around 250euro, doesn't seem to matter too much on the size, it's the travelling that counts. If you don't know how big your fosse is it'd be ...

Are you using french pipe? The easiest thing is too throw the waste in the bin & get another. I think they would actually fit uk pipe (well some of it as there is several sizes of 40mm) Also if it's acryilic (spellin?) silicon won't stay stuck to it & the shower trays crack after 3 - 5 years but oth...

ah, yes, but I believe salt water only goes down to minus 6,
I know people that use anti freeze.. how it affects the fosse I'm not sure but I'd hazard a guess that a couple of litres of that can't be any worse that bleach.

In short, yes.
Is the tank 3000litres?
do you have a filter system after the fosse?
does the kitchen waste go into the fosse as well?
do you have 2 vents from the fosse?
If you can answer yes to all those you're safe from imprisonment

I know someone who had the same thing happen, replacing it cost 200euro so you got off lightly

I was surprised to get an email notifying me of a response to this subject being that it was so old. 8O As Dave mentions there are artisans de-registering, who knows for what reasons, but given the economic climate the down turn in business generally is likely to be major factor. That's how we came ...

In that case if you apply they won't (shouldn't) bother you if ever they thought they might

Assuming you have had the property before the start of 2011 then there is nothing written that gives a timeline. I have permissions in place that are over 2 years old without having started the work (clients choice not mine) so it's fairly safe to say that you can get your permission sorted and do t...

What you should have in a current, to the norms system, is a 100mm pipe above roof line with a mushroom on it where this is at the end of the pipework upstream of any WC. Then there is the extractor that is connected after the fosse, also in 100mm pipe and should be higher and more exposed to the wi...

of course the cost of the diagnostics are at the door of the seller but haveing found out there's asbestos it's a pretty good bargaining chip - get it out or I wn't buy it.

An outside end of garden toilet... hmm I can see why they didn't like it. If you had created a bathroom with all parts correctly fitted (I don't think they have to work)I reckon that would do - well you are going to install a bathroom arn't you? From reading their letter it is obvious there wasn't e...

Low voltage lights: they count 300Va as one lighting point. You can daisy chain if the fittings have a spare set of holes, all DCL fittings have. An english junction box? why? after using a plastic box & wagos (push in connectors) you'll never want to touch a UK jb! They say lighting point, therefor...
