What is a Septic Tank?

A septic tank is an underground tank made of solid, fibreglass or plastic through which household wastewater flows. Settling and anaerobic procedures, therefore, decrease solids and separate them from the water. At Eddisbury Land Services we offer a quality septic tank installation service, giving our clients peace of mind that their wastewater can distribute efficiently.

How do Septic Tanks Work?

Septic tanks work by allowing your domestic waste water to separate into three layers: solids, effluent and scum. The solids settle to the bottom, where microorganisms decompose them. The scum, composed of waste that’s lighter than water, floats on top.

The middle layer of effluent exits the tank and travels through underground perforated pipes into the drainage field. There, gravel and soil act as biological filters to purify the wastewater as it sinks into the ground
Inside the tank bacteria from the wastewater breaks down the solid waste.
These bacteria decompose the solid waste rapidly allowing the liquids to separate and drain away more easily.

How to Empty a Septic Tank?

If a septic tank is not cleaned regularly, toxins and antibacterial substances build up killing the vital bacteria that break down the waste.
Many household cleaners build up sludge and solid waste in the septic tank and drainfield lines. This leads to the septic system failure.

Septic Tank Regulations

You should not discharge the waste from a septic tank into a watercourse such as a stream, ditch or river. If you plan to discharge into a watercourse you should install a sewage treatment plant.

Septic Tank Cleaning

If a septic tank is not cleaned regularly, toxins and antibacterial substances build up killing the vital bacteria that break down the waste.

Many household cleaners build up sludge and solid waste in the septic tank and drainfield lines. This leads to the septic system failure

Rather than waiting for the septic system to reach its breaking point, it is advisable to act upon it beforehand, cleaning the tank out every 1–3 years is advisable.

Hiring a professional waste disposal company is the ultimate way to take care of the cleaning process. We recommend Chesshire Tank Services to empty upir septic tank.
