For many rural properties mains drainage is not an option so septic tanks provide a discreet and often highly efficient method of dealing with waste water and sewage.
For many years Cesspits were used but these need emptying regularly and can become costly. Septic tanks come in a range of different types and offer different levels of treatment depending on your situation.
While septic tanks can be very effective, they can need maintenance as well as the related pump servicing and drainage. We are able to provide septic tank servicing and repair as well as installation and pump maintenance.

If you have a septic tank or sewage treatment plant, it is advisable you have it serviced periodically. It is important to make sure the tank is intact and not compromised by roots or anything else. Many of the potential issues will come up in an inspection but it is also useful to consider servicing to make sure everything is working properly.
Different tanks have different types of pump, some are designed to pump the wastewater up to ground level and others are used to bring the wastewater into the system and even push it out to a soakaway.

Before installing a drainage system a percolation test is critical. It is a way of testing how the ground can absorb water and plays a major role in assessing what kind of tank system your property may need.
The percolation test assesses if the ground is suitable for a drainage field and how big that area needs to be. Our experienced team can come and perform this test prior to any planning and work on the system itself.
In 2020 new rules came into play regarding Cesspits and septic tanks. It is important your system is compliant with these rules and we can help you assess that and plan what to do next.
