We offer a professional septic tank installation and emptying service, but under what circumstances should you consider investing in a septic system?
What is a Septic Tank System?
A septic tank is essentially a watertight enclosure designed to store solids to allow the waste to decompose naturally via bacteria, while any liquid waste is separated out from the solids via dispersal into the soil. It is this anaerobic bacterium within the tank that breaks down the waste material and, more importantly, stops the septic tank from smelling.
Once the septic tank is full, we will provide a tanker for the safe removal of the waste, which is required about one a year. If the tank is not emptied, the solid waste will eventually begin to appear on the leech field which would certainly spoil the look of your soft landscaping Cheltenham.
When Should You Install a Septic Tank?
Septic tanks are primarily required in rural areas where there is limited access to a public sewage system. A homeowner wishing to install a septic tank system should typically have one acre or more of property to ensure they have the adequate space.
A septic system can deliver significant savings compared to a regular public sewage system, with much reduced water usage. We can advise you on what size septic tank system you will need, based on the size of your household.
At Total Drainage Services, we only use the most modern techniques and cutting edge technology to deliver professional and high quality results. We don’t charge call-out fees and all fees will be agreed with you before we start the work; giving you peace of mind you won’t be hit with an unexpectedly large bill.
