  1. previously soakaways were filled with rubble and such like to soak up water and support the ground above, these days most bco's want to see crates used, these are strong enough to support the ground above (with a concrete cap) and as they are empty they can obviously catch a lot of water, so the speed at which it drains away is far less of an issue. average soak away uses 6 crates. worth checking the downpipes are not blocked/cracked and allowing the water to escape above ground too

  7. Sounds a bit like the estate i shoot on, i can only get there once or twice a month, but being a large estate (1500 acres) there are other shooters on it as well. the place is totally shoot out with only the odd pigeon flying over high and fast on his way somewhere else. just going elsewhere is not an option for a huge number of people, being in the southeast of England, land is hard to come by. unfortunately it is the only perm i have so i do find myself sat there like your old retired guy
  8. i have one, it was £300 a couple of years ago, it is noisy as hell, it requires a vent to the outside and over the course of 5 hours it reduced the temp in my lounge by 2 degrees! better off just tucking into icecream
