Septic Tank Emptying:
How it works
Although sewage treatment techniques have been around for hundreds of years, it's only been in the last fifty years or so that legislation was introduced in regards to the sizing and condition of the treatment provided, and the permissions to discharge settled water to soakaway and herringbone land drainage.
Septic tanks generally consist of two chambers with a dividing wall that allows solid and liquid waste to separate and be treated accordingly. The tanks are manufactured from either concrete rings, brick, glass-reinforced plastic or polyethene.
The waste produced by the property discharges by gravity into one chamber, which sees the solids either sink or float. The liquid is discharged into the second chamber, which allows any smaller solids to settles. The liquid that is left over is then discharged into a soakaway, a filter bed or a herringbone land drain.
