Frankston is the bustling epicentre of the seaside Mornington Peninsula, and has a varied mix of homes that are older and more modern. Many of the older properties have septic tanks on site in addition to or instead of a connection to the main sewage system. The disposal of septic waste and maintenance of septic tanks are not subjects that are commonly addressed, however they are crucially important when it comes to protecting the environment in a coastal city such as Frankston. So how do I care for my septic tank in Frankston? Talk to the experts at Solo Resource Recovery.
Solo Resource Recovery specialise in performing domestic and commercial septic tank cleaning, pumping and maintenance to Frankston and surrounding areas. With over 80 years experience, Solo have the professional knowledge and equipment to service any size septic tank, old or new, commercial or domestic.
So why do I need regular septic pumping and cleaning in Frankston?
Septic pumping refers to the emptying of solid waste and sludge that accumulates in the septic tank over time. Regular septic pumping in Frankston is extremely important in maintaining the effectiveness and longevity of the septic tank on your property.
If the amount of solid waste in the septic tank passes the fill line, without professional removal the water will not flow continuously in and out of the chamber, and there is a risk of contaminated water leaking into the surrounding environment. In a coastal environment such as Frankston, the close proximity of the septic tank to the ocean means that septic waste can find its way into the ocean, seriously endangering marine life and water quality.
What exactly does my septic tank do? Are there benefits to having a septic tank on the property?
Septic tanks in Frankston are underground waste treatment and storage facilities made of concrete, fibreglass or plastic located on site at a domestic or commercial property.
Waste water from the toilet or sink flows into this receptacle to be stored and treated. Septic tanks are most commonly used in rural, remote and small holiday communities that are not connected to a main sewerage system, however they are common in metropolitan areas, such as Frankston, that are close to the coast.
The term “septic” refers to the bacterial environment created in the tank that decomposes or mineralises the liquid waste as it is discharged from the home and accumulated in the receptacle. The bacteria actively break down any raw sewerage flushed through the pipes of the property.
Benefits of having a well maintained septic tank in Frankston include:
– Good for the environment, reduces the amount of waste water going out to sea
– Lowers water bills
– Low cost
– Relatively easy to maintain, with little invasive maintenance required
