Septic tank installation UK wide is something that a lot of homeowners and business owners invest in. A septic tank is a good option to consider because it is an eco-friendly and economical approach to disposing of wastewater. However, to ensure your septic tank continues to run effectively, you need to look after it.
In this post, we are going to reveal some important tips you need to follow after septic tank installation. Firstly, you need to make sure that you do not overload the drainfield and the septic tank. If your septic tank is more than 20 years old, it is likely that it will need to be replaced, as it will probably not be big enough to deal with the current flow rates, which have increased over the years. There are other more immediate solutions, including changing to a low water consumption washing machine, using low-flow showers, and repairing dripping and leaking toilets and taps. Aside from this, never use your sink or toilet as a rubbish bin. A waste disposal unit can simply double the amount of solids that end up in your septic tank while you should never flush kitchen roll, facial tissues, sanitary towels, nappies or anything of this sort down the toilet. You should also keep trees away from the septic system, especially those with aggressive roots, including poplars and willows. All trees need to be at least 30 metres from the soakaway to ensure there is no root damage. Finally, be careful with disinfection, cleaning products and anything similar that you pour down the sink.
