Ok thanks for that . Having looked at it again this morning and bailing out some cleanish water ( from the 2ndtank ) so I can bring level down a bit ,I'm thinking along those lines ,certainly never had any reason to look in it before .As I said going back to uk this week so its going to have to wait till I get back in a couple of months (at least i wont be using it and hopefully ground will dry out a bit more ). I'll try and get a number from the builder unless you can recommend anyone or point me the right direction of firms that deal with this sort of thing .

Think you need to contact your Local council and request it to be emptied ( the solids part) A sludge gulper tanker will have it emptied in no time. Slight caution is needed here to ascertain if your fossa was legally built or registered , which was a requirement about 5 years ago, maybe more. If the property is one your have bought recently, you could enquire from the vendor.
Cost of emptying is low, and should only need doing infrequently, depends on how many bottom hours use it.

Sorry I had not read the foregoing messages on page one. My comments are superfluous.
