What is a septic tank?

The word “septic” refers to the anaerobic bacterial system that forms within the tank and allows waste to decompose or mineralise.

A septic tank is a wastewater collection and treatment facility that is located underground at dwellings or facilities that do not have access to established sewerage connections provided by water authorities.

All of the property’s drains connect to a single pipe that leads to the septic tank. The wastewater from your toilet, tub, sinks, and washing machine is mixed as it leaves your building. However, when it reaches the septic tank, it starts to split. Sludge, or the heaviest particulate matter in the waste, sinks to the bottom. The floating scum layer at the top of the tank is made up of fats, oils, and proteins.

To remove the sludge and solids that settle at the bottom of the septic tank, the contents needs to be pumped out and disposed of at an accredited receiving facility.

Domestic septic tank servicing

In general, a septic tank should be pumped every 2 – 5 years. Ultimately, the time between cleans depends on the number of people in your household, the age of your septic tank and the tank’s storage capacity.

Our team can provide you with a professional septic system service in the Goulburn Valley and North East Victoria areas.
