How does a septic tank work?

The wastewater that we collect from our houses is carried through pipes to the underground septic tanks. It must be ensured that these tanks are maintained properly so as to ensure proper functioning. Once the tank is filled up, sewage water comes out from it and enters the absorption trench or leach field system.

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) float to the top of the tank and form a scum layer, whilst the rest of the broken down solids (sludge) sinks to the bottom of the tank.

Septic tank design & installation

In order to live a healthy life, the right kind of living conditions must be made available. In this respect, a septic tank is one of the most important installations that need to be made in our homes. A septic tank basically ensures that sewage water coming from your house does not directly touch you or anyone near it and hence live a clean and healthy life. The construction and the installation of a septic tank is done by experts as per the requirement, location and need of the client.

The septic tank installation process starts with finding out whether your building plan is approved or not by your local municipality. If that is okay then digging work will be done to create a hole for the septic tank. Once this is done, the septic tank team will come in and make sure that they lay it down properly. After the tank is installed there are various tests are performed to ensure that everything works fine with the system.

Construction of septic tanks

These are basically made up of concrete, fibreglass, polyethylene etc. The size of the tank will depend upon the number of people living in the house and also on the design. It can be installed either below or above ground.

We always ensure your septic system works efficiently, effectively and complies with your local council’s requirements, offering you peace of mind that you are dealing with reputable experts. We know that septic tank systems are a great, practical wastewater option for homes and businesses which don’t have access to council sewerage infrastructure, so let us show you too.

What are the benefits of septic tanks?

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.
