Common septic system issues

An important part of a septic tank, and one of the common causes for future issues, is the septic or absorption trench. When you refer to 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 installation. 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, plagued with issues. The original cost outlay that you may have saved on installation by using this old style of pipe can end up costing you significantly more when you have to dig up and replace the trenches due to failure or ongoing issues.

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

  1. Roots – As you can imagine the effluent that travels through this slotted pipe is a great nutrient rich source of food for trees and plants in the area. The slots in the pipe allow easy access for tree and plant roots which can quickly take hold as there is nothing keeping them out of the pipe. Because of the slots even if you get a drain cleaner in to clear the drains they will just come straight back.
  2. Crushing – slotted 90mm pipe has a very thin wall which means it can be crushed easily, obstructing the flow of effluent.
  3. Dirt – once again because of the small diameter and the slots in the pipe if dirt falls into the pipe it can fill the pipe and block it up. Once this process starts it is very hard to stop.
  4. Build up of septic waste – the calcification that occurs in a septic tank can also block up this style of septic pipes as can build up over time in the pipe and harden.

Unless stated otherwise on your septic system plan, or there is another preference indicated by the customer, we will always install 450mm jumbo trench pipe to help avoid all of the issues associated with the old style smaller slotted pipe. As we carry out septic tank system installations every day we can offer this more long lasting, top quality pipe often at a more cost effective price than our competitors, even when they use the cheaper alternative.
