Did You Know?
A septic tank is an underground, watertight container, designed to collect, treat, and partially decompose sewage and wastewater from homes and businesses that are not connected to a public sewer system.
Septic tanks are typically constructed from materials such as concrete, fiberglass, or plastic, and they come in various sizes to accommodate different wastewater flow rates and the number of users.
A typical septic tank consists of two chambers, which are divided by a baffle wall or divider. Wastewater enters the first chamber, where solids settle to the bottom, and anaerobic bacteria begin the decomposition process. Liquid effluent then flows through the baffle wall into the second chamber, where further treatment occurs.
In the septic tank, the anaerobic bacteria break down organic matter, converting it into sludge and scum layers. The sludge settles at the tank’s bottom, while the lighter scum rises to the top. The liquid between these layers, known as effluent, exits the tank and is distributed into a drain field or leach field for further treatment and absorption into the soil.
Regular maintenance is crucial for the proper functioning of a septic tank system. This includes a periodic septic pump out to remove accumulated sludge and scum, typically every 3 to 5 years, although the frequency may vary based on usage and tank size. Inspections are also recommended to check for any damage or leaks, ensuring the tank remains watertight.
When well-maintained, septic tanks are an environmentally friendly way to treat wastewater. They naturally treat sewage on-site and can minimise the pollution of nearby water bodies and groundwater if properly sited and maintained.
Septic tank services, including installation, maintenance, and septic waste removal are subject to health regulations and codes to ensure that they meet safety and environmental standards.
