A septic tank is a variety of sewage treatment system that treats sewage at the source, rather than transporting it to an external treatment plant. This means that they are an ideal means of hygienically dealing with waste from properties that are situated in remote locations, with no links to the mains sewers. At Total Drainage Services Ltd we can install, clean and maintain a range of treatment plants including septic tanks Bristol.
A septic tank is essentially a watertight enclosure that our experienced engineers usually install beneath the grounds of a property, as a result of this they are generally very inconspicuous, perfect for those property owners that are worried about their sewage treatment system being visible.
Both the solid and liquid waste is fed in to the tank and here the solid waste will remain to decompose via natural bacterial action, whilst the liquid effluent will be dispersed into the soil by a land drainage system.
Obviously, over a period of time the solid waste that is stored within the tank will build up, resulting in the system needing to be emptied and cleaned. Fortunately, we at Total Drainage offer a complete package to our clients, including the maintenance of the sewage treatment systems that we install.
Our fleet of tankers are supplied in a selection of sizes and all are fully equipped with specialist kit that will aid the cleaning process. As an example, our jetting equipment can effectively dislodge any waste without our team having to manually enter the tank.
