What is a septic tank?

A septic tank is the most well-known component of a septic system. The process a septic tank utilises is quite simple - some of the matter (ie. grease and fats) floats to the top of the tank and forms a scum layer, whilst the rest of the broken down solids (sludge) sinks to the bottom of the tank.

What benefits do septic tanks offer?

Septic tank systems offer a range of advantages to both commercial and residential customers including:

  • If correctly installed and well-maintained, septic tanks and the associated absorption trenches provide a long lasting wastewater solution.
  • The water used in your home is filtered back into the local environment.
  • No harsh chemicals are needed, as the natural bacteria in a septic tank helps to breakdown the sewage.
  • Septic tank systems can be designed to suit properties of all shapes and sizes.
  • Septic tanks are cost effective, as minimal maintenance is required to keep the water treatment system in top condition.
  • Low running costs.
  • Septic tanks only require pumping out every 3 to 5 years, depending on the wastewater demands of your property.

What about septic tank maintenance?

Carrying out routine maintenance on your septic tank system has a range of benefits including:

  • Keep your septic system flowing freely.
  • Ensures your septic tank system continues to efficiently remove the black and grey wastewater from your home all year round.
  • Help avoid bad odours from developing.
  • Ensures that every aspect of your septic tank is checked regularly, helping to avoid any ongoing issues and allow any problems to be located sooner.

If issues are found, our experienced team can carry out any septic system repairs needed as soon as possible.
