Septic System Specialists Somerset

An important part of a septic tank, and the main cause for future issues, is the septic absorption trench. When you say 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 system. 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. The couple of dollars you saved on installation can end up costing you thousands when you have to dig up and replace the trenches.

The main problems with slotted pipe for septic trenches are:

  • Roots The effluent travelling through this slotted pipe is great food for roots and with the slots, in the pipe, the roots 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 the roots will come back again
  • Crushed pipes 90mm pipes have a very thin wall and can be crushed under the ground
  • Dirt They have a small diameter so dirt may fall through the pipe and create a blockage. Once this process starts it is tough to stop
  • Calcification The calcification that occurs in a septic tank can also block up these types of trenches as it sits in the pipe and hardens

At Express, unless stated otherwise on a plan or the preference of a customer we always install the 450mm jumbo trench. Because we do these jobs every day we can install these often at a cheaper price than our competitors even when they use the cheaper alternative. We are also not tied to any manufacturer so we always provide the best advice and offer high-quality services at reasonable prices.
