Septic Tank Installations

Septic tanks are one of the most simple waste water alternatives to mains sewer connection, and we can take care of the complete process surveying, excavating, installing and finishing to the highest quality standards.

The simplicity comes from them not being a true sewage treatment system; inside the tank the waste settles, separating liquids and solids so that the liquid waste can be filtered off safely, whilst the solids must be removed by a specialist company on an occasional basis.

Not sure if you have a Septic Tank?

A few indicators are:

  • Possible vent pipes above the ground.
  • Several manholes in close proximity to one another.
  • Having to empty the tank several times each year is always the best indicator.

If your septic tank discharges directly to a watercourse, you will need to do one of the following as soon as possible (typically within 12 months):

  • connect to mains sewer.
  • install a drainage field so the septic tank can discharge to ground instead.
  • replace your septic tank with a small sewage treatment plant.

If you are buying or selling a property with a septic tank that discharges directly to a watercourse, you should arrange with the seller who will be responsible for the replacement or upgrade of the existing treatment system. This should be a condition of sale.

SE drainage can carry out the management and installation of all types of Septic tank for private and commercial properties both small and large. The processes surrounding the installation of a new Septic tank can be complicated and SE drainage can utilise their expertise to guide you through to completion.
