Benefits of septic tank systems
- 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, natural bacteria in the tank helps to breakdown the sewage.
- Septic systems can be designed to suit either small or large properties.
- Cost effective - the minimal maintenance required to keep the water treatment system in top condition keeps running costs down
- Septic tanks only require pumping out every 3 to 5 years, depending on the wastewater demands of your property.
Septic tank system installation
Investing in expert advice prior to the installation of your septic system and soakage trenches ensure the system is designed and installed taking important factors into consideration such as:
- the soil type - this can determine how easily the effluent or liquid waste will absorb into the ground, which in turn dictates how long the soakage trenches need to be.
- rainfall - the amount of rain your area receives can affect absorption rates.
- the climate - hot days with lots of sunlight or a cool cloudy climate will affect evaporation rates.
- the size of your home - a home with 2 bedrooms and 2 residents will have lower levels of waste water than a busy home with a large family.
It is important to install your homes wastewater treatment systems away from buildings, boundaries, groundwater, water supplies such as dams or creeks, and in an area which won’t get driven over. Vehicles and heavy machinery can compact the soil over or around the septic tank or damage absorption trenches.
Thought also needs to be given to the plants and trees in the area around the sewage treatment system. Experts recommend only planting grass directly over and a few metres around trenches and tanks. Avoid running trenches near large trees or plants as the extensive root systems can cause septic trenches to clog and fail.
