Yep - ours blocked up when we had visitors. Chris and I used the woods but we had to buy a camping loo that sat upstairs for the visitors.
Pleased you got is all sorted and saved so much money. I too was ill after the diry job of cllearing the outlet.
I have been digging again this week ! Made a large soakaway to take the water that comes off the barn roof and was flooding an area too near the kitchen soakaway.
Oh for the pleasure of mains drainage !

we had problems when we moved here and after getting a farmer to fix it, we found the pipes were upside down as obviously who ever had put the tank in place had done it wrong.
getting a farming / drainage contractor can be an awful lot cheaper than the other guys.
