Does your Septic Tank need to be cleaned?

How long has it been since you have had your septic tank cleaned?  Some people are not aware that a septic tank needs to be pumped every 4-5 years.

There are different types of septic systems ie. Septic & Soakage or STED (Septic Tank Effluent Disposal Scheme), which is connected to the Councils Waste Water System.

Our plumbers can inspect your septic system and advise if any maintenance is required. If regular cleaning of your septic tank is not done, it can lead to expensive problems in the future.

Common problems that may occur from not cleaning your septic tank are:

  • Your drains may become slow to drain or blocked completely
  • A build up of odour can become evident around the septic area or even inside your house
  • If your septic tank is damaged or leaking it could cause a build up of odours or sinking around your septic tank or drains
  • Septic tanks are not designed to have anything, except waste water and toilet paper in them. Other items such as feminine hygiene products, baby wipes, paper towels etc can cause major blockages if left in the septic tank.
