Septic Tanks in Perth have been paramount for decades now in maintaining your daily septic waste. Not only are they essential to have as part of the home; they are key to maintain the waste of villages and towns. Especially in rural towns.
Where does septic waste in Perth go? Of course the usual main sewage systems spring to mind when you think of where your waste is disregarded; though not a thought that comes to mind very often. However, it is important to consider this rarely thought of necessity; for your property and the environment alike.
Septic Tanks in Perth are something of the present and future, with low cost maintenance and high economic purpose; here’s why your home will benefit from a septic tank…
How do septic tanks work? The septic tank is designed to safely store and break down raw sewage underground meaning it is made with strong materials such as concrete, fibreglass or plastic to contain dangerous chemicals that would otherwise destroy the environment. Depending on the size of the area, more than one septic tank is installed underground.
Out of sight; out of smell and out of mind.
Once attached to your plumbing system; all future household waste (and what is flushed from your loo) flows through the pipes and is deposited into the septic tank. Once your waste enters, the following process ensues;
The waste enters the tank and bacteria begins to break down the harmful liquid waste
Waste in the septic tank is divided into three parts; sludge, scum & partially treated water
The scum is the foam and particles that float to the top of the tank
The sludge, being the unbreakable solid wastes; sinks to the bottom of the tank
The partially treated water in between the two is safely released into a drain field where the effluent (treated liquid waste) is released into the soil underground.
In short; the septic tank takes all of your household waste and sewage and stores all of the bad sludgy stuff. Special bacteria processes treat the recyclable liquid waste to deposit it back into the soil. The circle of life.
The maintenance of septic tanks Perth Like all areas of life, septic tanks require maintenance and cleanliness. The bad news is that they do need to be pumped and cleaned. The good news is that it needn’t be done too often; and it is professionally cleaned by us – so you don’t need to be anywhere near the nasty stuff.
Septic pumping Perth As written about earlier in the process of how septic tanks work; a layer of sludge that cannot be broken down via the bacterial process sinks to the bottom of the tank. After time, the sludge begins to pile up within the chamber and eventually needs to be emptied to allow for new waste.
Septic pumping is a process that can be arranged on a regular basis with your local liquid waste removal company. Here at Solo, our professional service consists of trained experts who can efficiently and safely pump your septic tank at your convenience. We always take the relevant steps to pump, remove and safely dispose of the waste at the protection of the environment.
Septic Cleaning Perth From time to time, your septic tank will need a professional clean. In most circumstances, people arrange to have their septic tanks cleaned when they are moving properties. However, it is beneficial to the maintenance of your home and environment around to have this cleaned more frequently. Leaving a septic clean too long can result in future plumping problems as well as bad smells around the home (this being a good indicator to arrange for a septic clean).
