Why should I install a septic system?
Installing a septic system on your property is one of the most practical investments you can make.
Some of the benefits of installing a septic system include:
One of the most significant benefits of installing a septic system in your home is that poses a much lower risk to the environment.
In traditional systems, sewage is transported across the entire system over long distances, so the chances of leaks occurring are much higher.
This can cause significant damage to the surrounding environment, but with a septic tank, the risk of widespread leakage is much lower.
Septic tanks are also a more energy-efficient option for smaller, rural communities, as they do not require large infrastructure and energy outputs.
On average, the lifespan of a septic tank is between 20-40 years, depending on how well you maintain it and which material it is made out of.
Most septic tanks will only need to be pumped every 3-5 years, so your plumbing maintenance bills will be very low.
You can reduce this cost even further by carrying out regular inspections and cleaning it between pumps.
For most property owners, their septic tanks will last throughout the entire period they spend living in the property.
You have greater control
When you install a septic system on your property, you are not part of a greater sewage system, so you do not have to rely on an external company to fix any problems that might occur.
Instead, you can fix the tank yourself or arrange for a professional to fix it at a time that is convenient for you.
However, it is important to note that the responsibility of keeping your septic tank in full working order lies with you, so it’s essential to be proactive if you spot an issue.
At Atkin Plumbing & Gasfitting, we understand that having an off-mains septic tank installed on your property can be a complex and daunting process. There are several national regulations and rules regarding the location of off-mains drainage and the ground conditions surrounding it that need to be complied with.
Our team of local experts will ensure that your septic tank installation is compliant with all national regulations, so you can avoid future litigation and hefty fines. If you have any questions about our services, please don’t hesitate to give us a call.
To ensure your septic tank continue to function at maximum capacity and minimise any potential problems, it’s important to get your septic tank serviced regularly.
As a septic tank accumulates waste, blockages can occur and your tank won’t be able to effectively manage the waste produced and the sewerage can also produce harmful micro-organisms.
To prevent this from happening regular maintenance like septic tank pumping helps keep your system function properly.
There are a few common signs that your septic tank or wastewater system need servicing. These include:
- Strong or unpleasant odours coming from your toilets or drains
- Your toilets or drains don’t clear as efficiently as they used to
- Grass around the tank or in your lawn is greener and growing more than usual
- Water pooling on the top of your tank
