The only issue is that you then need to pump the solid waste out on a regular basis and it stinks!
    I would definitely like to plumb it into my drain but it's below ground level......what about my septic tank, now there's a thought, let me go and see if that's possible

    Careful that the drum washes will be adding a good 2+ litres a flush (more for the 25 I suspect) so if your septic tank is a fixed volume it's adding a large amount. If the wash liquid could be settled without too much disruption of the upper layer you could make an overflow of non-solids to the soak away and then do a regular pump out of the solids to the septic tank.
