We had one installed in January.  Your first port of call is the Mairie's office to collect a pack containing details of 6 different systems and an application form.  This will give you a rough idea of costs.  At the same time ask your Mairie to arrange for someone to come and do a soil sample as this will more or less dictate which system you can have.  Have mailed you with recommendations re firms to approach.

John, to save yourself receiving a lot if incorrect advice please give us your department. The way of going about this varies greatly in different depts. so ignore any advice given here unless you know it is from someone in your area.

That Froggy is right! Do not pay for any proffessional surveys until you find out if the S.A.T.E.S will do it for free, your Marie can put you in touch with these people and may save you 400E+

Or you can ignore me if you like...sob...

Cheers Ty!

James......the first port of call has to be the Mairie?  Please don't tell me I'm wrong on that one or I'll kill myself.

Give Kelly a call of SKP Travaux Publics.  They are listed in the AI directory.  They installed our tank last year & dealt with ALL paperwork for us including permissions etc.

They are based in Malguenac near Pontivy.

Froggy, I can't speak for 56 which is where John is but here in 35 it seems that no, the first stop isn't the mairie - it's the Bureau d'Etudes. As I said, the system appears to differ greatly from one dept to another.
