What is a Septic Tank?

A septic tank is a system located underground to collect and treat wastewater. Septic tanks are installed when a building or property is not connected to the mains sewerage system which would usually perform this function.

The treatment process inside the tank is non-chemical and involves biological decomposition, settlement and drainage. The term “septic” relates to the anaerobic bacterial system that develops within the tank and causes the waste that is discharged into the tank to decompose or mineralise.

Regular, preventive maintenance is required to remove the irreducible solids which settle at the bottom of the septic tank.

Septic Tank Emptying

To avoid contamination of surrounding groundwater, the possibility of solids escaping the tank and destroying the clarified liquid effluent and in order to maintain effective performance, it is important to ensure your septic tank is emptied regularly. By simply emptying your tank every 6-12 months, you’ll be sure to avoid these problematic situations.
