Septic Tank Emptying – A Necessity

Septic tanks consist of a network of perforated pipes to facilitate easy wastewater percolation into the ground. An outlet pipe is connected with them to take the water to a soakaway or drainage field. The wastewater flows towards the soakaway, leaving behind a scum layer at the top and sludge at the bottom, which needs to be emptied.

Regular emptying of the septic tank is necessary to avoid unnecessary issues, such as gurgling sounds in pipes, difficulty flushing toilets, and unpleasant odours inside and outside your property. There is also a potential risk of solid waste escaping from the septic tank into the soakaway system, leading to its blockage and creating negative impacts on environmental health by polluting watercourses.

A septic tank is used for collecting sewage and wastewater from houses that are not connected to the main sewer. It must be emptied at least once every 2-3 years as the settled solid waste gets degraded anaerobically. On the other hand, a cesspit tank holds sewage and wastewater with no soakaway or processing and needs to be emptied more frequently.

The wastewater from your dishwasher, showers, sinks, washing machine, etc., flows into the septic tank, where it is collected.
