A septic tank is a key component of the septic system, a small-scale sewage treatment system common in areas that lack connection to main sewage pipes which are provided by local councils or private corporations.
Septic tanks vary to suit the requirement, these work in conjunction with a drainage field to treat the wastewater effectively and return it to the environment. These do however still need emptying to remove sludge from the chamber this will increase the life span of the drainage field.
A cesspit or cesspool is an underground holding tank (sealed) or a soak pit (not sealed) that is used for the temporary storage of sewage.
Cess pits provide a similar solution however do not process or treat the waste in any way. These fill up quicker and need emptying more frequently.
An interceptor is a storage tank typically buried underground, the sole purpose being catching and collecting oil, silt, dirt and dust before entering the surface water system. These are designed to prevent any of the above hitting the main sewer.
Interceptors need to be maintained, emptied and cleaned to prevent any of the waste entering rivers, streams or groundwater in order to prevent pollution which could result in prosecution from the Environment Agency.
We offer a full range of services including maintenance, repairs and emptying for septic tanks, interceptors and cess pools as well as installation. These can be done as a one-off or as part of a preventive planned maintenance contract. Neglecting regular maintenance can have serious consequences for your business and the environment, increasing the risk of pollution incidents with clean-up costs, potential prosecution and fines.
Under Government legislation, ourselves and our client have a duty of care to ensure that the waste is handled correctly from the point of pick up to the point of disposal to minimise the negative effect on the environment. In addition to this, we have a duty of care to you, to ensure that this is done in the most cost-effective and environmentally friendly way possible.
