I don't think a soakaway is legal for grey water, but then I am not a plumber.

460 Lt bath, about twice the size of a normal bath, so like two normal sized bath's being discharged together

3000 Lt fosse / 460 Lt bath = 6.5, about a sixth of the capacity of the fosse being displaced in one go

To be on the safe side, I would be inclined to up the fosse capacity to 4000 Lt, and slightly enlarge the drainage field

But this would depend on the local SPANC's views

All grey and black water must go through a fosse septique now, according to the latest regulations
