What is a septic tank?

The standard septic tank consists of a large structure made from concrete, plastic or fibreglass made up of 2 chambers. The wastewater from your house flows into the first chamber and out through a series of pipes into the second chamber.

The standard septic tank serves as a primary treatment process for wastewater, functioning by separating solid waste from liquids and allowing the solids to settle at the bottom while the liquid waste water flows out below ground via a soil absorption trench.

Do You Need Maintenance for a Septic Tank System?

Proper maintenance is crucial for ensuring the long-term functionality and efficiency of a septic tank system. Standard septic tanks require regular maintenance to prevent issues and costly repairs. Here are the suggested maintenance requirements for a septic tank system:

  • Pumping: Regular pumping is necessary to remove accumulated sludge and scum from the tank. On average, a standard septic tank should be pumped every 2 to 5 years, although frequency may vary depending on household size and water usage.
  • Inspections: Periodic inspections of the tank and drainfield are essential to identify any signs of damage, leaks, or clogs. Professionals can assess the system's condition and recommend necessary repairs or maintenance actions.

In addition to these specific maintenance tasks, it is crucial to follow good septic system practices, such as conserving water, avoiding excessive use of household chemicals, and properly disposing of waste materials. Regular maintenance and responsible usage will help prolong the lifespan of your septic tank system.

Can I install my own septic tank?

Although there are DIY guides and videos related to the installation of a septic tank, we strongly recommend that you do not complete this task yourself.

There are many factors to consider when installing a septic tank which you might not be aware of, so it is best to take the help of professionals.
