What are septic tanks ?.

Septic tanks are a way of collecting waste material from a property that can not connect to the public sewer system because the public sewer system is too far away for instance.

There are many things to consider when deciding on a septic tank set up like how many people will it serve, environmental issues, distance to property, water sources like rivers etc. 

 

 

(1) WHY WOULD I NEED A SEPTIC TANK: IF YOU CANT CONNECT TO THE MAINS YES YOU WILL.

(2) WHAT TYPE OF SYSTEM DO I NEED ARE THEY EXPENSIVE ?. WELL DEPENDING ON VARIOUS FACTORS IT WILL BE A SEPTIC TANK & SOAKAWAY,OR CESSPIT SYSTEM OR A SEWERAGE TREATMENT UNIT, COST DEPENDS ON APPLICATION & SIZE.

(3) WHAT THE BUILDING REGS ON SEPTIC TANKS : THIS DEPENDS ON WHERE YOU ARE,THE TYPE OF SOIL YOU HAVE,DISTANCE FROM PROPERTY AND PROXIMITY TO OTHERS AND RIVERS ETC.CLICK THE LINK FOR BUILDING REGS INFO  http://www.drainage-experts.com/Drainage ExpertsThumbnails/septictanks.pdf

(4) IS THERE SPECIFIC SIZES FOR SPECIFIC NEEDS? : RULE OF THUMB IS 2700/2800L FOR 4 PEOPLE,3700/3800L FOR 9 PEOPLE OR 180L PER ADDITIONAL USER. 

(5) IS PLACING THE SEPTIC TANK A CONSIDERATION I SHOULD WORRY ABOUT ? : HERE AGAIN BUILDING REGS INSIST ON MINIMUM OF 7M FROM THE PROPERTY.

(6) ARE SEPTIC TANKS HIGH MAINTENANCE : YES THEY SHOULD BE CLEANED OUT AT LEAST EVERY 5 YEARS.

( 7) ARE DRAIN LEVELS TO BE A CONCERN ?: AT LEAST A 1-40 FLOW FROM DRAIN TO SEPTIC TANK AND 1-150/200 FLOW FROM THE SEPTIC TANK TO SOAKAWAY.
