Septic tanks in Adelaide have been around for many years working to treat and manage raw sewage and liquid waste – but people have barely heard of them. These much underrated liquid treatment systems are looking like an economic and easy maintenance resource for the future of sewage, so why use one?
How septic tanks work
Septic tanks were created as a smaller and easier to maintain water treatment system. The tanks were originally designed for the purpose for waste management in rural communities. The idea behind the design is that waste from smaller communities can be deposited, contained, treated and recycled all within a smaller system.
The process of the septic tank:
The septic tank Adelaide is installed underground
The plumbing from all toilets, sinks and the like are connected to the tank
Liquid waste is deposited into the tank via the pipelines
Liquid waste is broken down by bacteria within the chamber
Sludge (unbreakable waste) is stored at the bottom
Treated water is released via effluent, making it safe for the environment
The effluent is released into the soil, feeding the grass and surrounding flora
Think of a septic tank like a cleverly designed chamber that holds, cleans and recycles your disregarded liquid waste – whilst also feeding your grass too!
Benefits of septic tanks Adelaide
It’s important to remember that septic waste is incredibly harmful to the environment if not contained and treated properly; it can be hazardous for wildlife and plants, as well as toxic to humans too. We should never take decent plumbing and septic systems for granted.
Here are some of the major benefits to having a septic tank:
Easy to maintain
Simple to have installed
A well maintained septic tank on your property will not only ease your water bills, but you barely need to do anything to look after it as well! Read on to discover the simple steps on how to keep a healthy flow through your tank…
Septic pumping Adelaide
Arranging a professional septic pumping of your tank is the main step you need to take in ensuring the healthy and continuous flow of liquid treatment. This is key due the build up of sludge that settles at the bottom of the tank which needs to be emptied. Leaving this for too long can start to interfere with the plumbing on your property – as well as cause vile smells to linger around your home.
Here at Solo, we provide a professional and safe service in the septic pumping of your septic tank in Adelaide. Our experts are trained to deal with the maintenance and safe pumping to dispose of your liquid waste that both protects your home and the environment around.
Septic cleaning Adelaide
Once in a while, a septic tank needs to be properly and chemically cleaned to refresh and replenish the chamber. A well maintained and clean septic tank will have a longer life span in comparison to an old chamber that has been left to build up grime and sludge.
As an experienced liquid waste removal company, Solo Resource Recovery can arrange the regular septic pumping in Adelaide and decommissioning of your septic tank as soon as it’s required. It’s important to upkeep the healthy maintenance of your septic tank, so call us today on 1300 GO SOLO (1300 46 76 56).
