What are septic tanks? Am I likely to have one in my backyard?
Septic tanks in Lonsdale are waste water treatment systems that are built to store, treat and contain all liquid waste that is flushed and washed down the pipes in a property. It is a specially designed chamber with chemical processes intended to break down raw sewage, in contrast to using the main sewage system.
Septic tanks are built to last as they are usually installed underground. The materials used to build these are quite durable and typically include plastic, concrete or fibre glass. These materials are designed to safely contain harmful waste and toxic chemicals that would otherwise infect the environment if the septic tank had a leak.
Here is a breakdown of how the septic tank process works:
Liquid waste is flushed down the sinks and toilets in your home
The waste travels down the plumbing into the underground septic tank
The recyclable liquid waste is broken down by special bacteria in the tank
The solid waste is contained as sludge at the bottom
The treated liquid is emptied into the soil via the effluent via the draining tank
The liquid is absorbed by the soil and feeds the grass
Septic cleaning and pumping in Lonsdale
The build up of the solid waste, also known as sludge, that is deposited into a septic tank eventually passes the fill line and the tank needs to be safely and professionally emptied to allow for waste to flow continuously. The emptying process is known as septic pumping. If the tank is not emptied, there is a risk of the septic tank leaking into the surrounding environment. Arranging for a frequent septic pumping is essential in keeping your septic tank well maintained and long lasting.
