Septic Tanks

Your tank may be out of sight, but it shouldn't be out of mind. The rules regarding septic tanks recently changed which may affect you, especially if you're looking to sell your property. If you have any concerns regarding your system, we are happy to answer any questions that will give you peace of mind.

What's changed?

In 2020, The General Binding Rules changed to state that discharges from septic tanks directly to watercourses are prohibited. Therefore, you may need to update and upgrade the treatment system to comply with current rules.

What can happen if Septic Tanks are left?

Septic Tanks are prone to a gradual build-up of deposits and a slowing down of the natural digesting action of the micro-organisms which normally break them down. Leading to malfunctioning of the septic tank causing, blockages, bad smells, overflowing and consequent boggy conditions in the overflow area around the septic tank.

What is their environmental impact?

Environmentally, non-mains sewage systems can pollute groundwater if they are poorly located, built, or operated, affecting the water supplies such as, drinking water or water for livestock. It can also surface water in rivers and streams. Septic tanks, however, use natural biological processes to break down sewage and wastewater, producing a discharge that is harmless and safe when added slowly to well aerated soil.

We can report and investigate any sewer systems you may be concerned about, alongside installing, and servicing you with a septic tank that is much kinder to the environment.
