Septic System Specialists

An important part of a septic tank, and the main cause for future issues, is the septic trench. When you mention septic trenches, most plumbers still think of the old slotted 90mm pipe and that is what you will most likely be quoted on when you ask for a septic tank system. In some situations, these trenches work fine and will have a good long lifespan. However, in our experience, if they are not installed in the correct situation they can be a nightmare. The original couple of hundred dollars that you may have saved on installation can end up costing you thousands when you have to dig up and replace the trenches.

The main problems with using this style of slotted pipe for septic trenches are:

  1. Roots - The effluent that is travelling through this slotted pipe is great food for roots and with the slots in the pipe, the roots can quickly take hold as there is nothing keeping them out. Because of the slots even if you get a drain cleaner in to clear the drain they will just come straight back.
  2. Crushing - 90mm pipes have a very thin wall and can be crushed under the ground.
  3. Dirt - Due to the small diameter and the slots in the pipe if dirt falls through it may fill the pipe and block it up, once again once this process starts it is very hard to stop.
  4. A buildup of septic waste -  the calcification that occurs in a septic tank can also block up these types of trenches as it sits in the pipe and hardens.

At Express, unless stated otherwise on a plan, or another option is preferred by the customer, we will always install the 450mm jumbo trench pipe. Because we do these jobs every day we can install these often at a cheaper price than our competitors even when they use the smaller, slotted alternative.

Why not check us out for yourself, we can offer you some free advice over the phone or come out and inspect your trenches to come up with the best plan to fix your septic tank problem properly.

Septic System Repairs Gold Coast

Is your septic system old or failing? Is there an ongoing bad smell coming from your septic tank? Ageing or damaged septic systems can require substantial maintenance due to wear and tear and the accumulation of waste. If your septic system is failing don't hesitate to call us for advice and expert recommendations.

Septic System Maintenance Gold Coast

Septic systems can last for decades if they are maintained properly. We recommend that your septic tank is pumped out every 3-5 years or if you have a high water demand in your property you might need to do it every 1-2 years. This needs to be carefully managed as the accumulation of solid waste can cause your septic system to fail.

Our team can take care of your septic system servicing and maintenance to ensure it remains in good condition for many years to come. Get in contact today to schedule maintenance for your septic system in Gold Coast.
