Pottsville is a quiet and friendly coastal town with beautiful beaches on the north coast of New South Wales. Pottsville provides a haven for many happy holiday makers who return each year seeking sun, sand and relaxing times with family and friends. In order to keep Pottsville pristine, responsible septic waste management, particularly during peak holiday season, is an important consideration.
What are septic tanks and how do they work?
Septic tanks in Pottsville are underground waste treatment and storage facilities made of concrete, fibreglass or plastic located on site at a domestic or commercial property. Domestic wastewater 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.
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.
The septic waste treatment process can be summarised as follows:
Liquid waste is flushed down the toilet or rinsed down the sink
Waste water travels down the plumbing system into the septic tank
This recyclable waste liquid is broken down by the anaerobic bacteria activity in the septic tank
The remaining solid waste forms a sludge sediment at the bottom of the tank
Treated liquid is emptied into the surrounding soil via the draining tank
This liquid is absorbed by the soil and plants such as grass contained in the soil
Septic tanks are built to last from durable materials such as plastic, concrete or fibreglass. These sturdy construction materials, coupled with the fact that septic tanks are usually installed underground, provide the support to safely contain harmful waste and toxic chemicals that can contaminate the surrounding environment.
The importance of regular septic pumping and cleaning in Pottsville
Septic pumping refers to the emptying of solid waste and sludge that accumulates in the septic tank over time. Regular septic pumping in Pottsville is vitally 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.
Regular septic cleaning in Pottsville is also recommended to remove any potentially dangerous chemical waste build up that may stick to the walls of the septic tank.
