Who is Responsible for a Septic Tank System?

Specialist Cleaning Services and Septic Tank Installations in Croydon

In terms of legal accountability, the operator of the system is responsible for private drainage installations like septic tanks. This means the owner of the property or properties that are serviced by a septic tank will be responsible for getting it cleaned, repaired, and eventually replaced.

According to the UK government, you are considered an operator of a septic tank if:

  • You own the property that uses the system
  • You own a property that shares a septic tank system with other properties (in these cases each property owner is equally responsible)
  • You have a written agreement with the property owner that states you are responsible for the septic tank system

If you are unsure of any of your responsibilities regarding a septic tank on your property in Croydon, the Environment Agency will be able to provide further answers. Contact them as soon as possible if you have one already, or are planning on having one installed.

The Benefits of Installing a Septic Tank in Croydon

The Benefits of Installing a Septic Tank in Croydon

If your property is not connected to the main sewer line and you are not in a position to have a domestic sewage treatment plant installed, then your next best option is to have a septic tank installed. There are a number of benefits to doing this in Croydon:

  • Your property tax will be reduced, as you will no longer be connected to a municipal sewer system
  • Septic tanks are the second-most environmentally friendly private drainage system
  • Septic tank installations carried out by BlockBusters have a general lifespan of around 40 years, so you won’t have to worry about replacing them for a long time

How Will Your Septic Tank Work?

Septic tanks are designed to “digest” organic matter, using bacteria to naturally break down harmful substances and separate solid waste from the wastewater that’s collected from a property. 

In the tank, oils and grease in the wastewater will float above the rest of the collected material and be collected behind effluent filters to stop it from moving through the system. The rest of the solid material will settle at the bottom of the tank as it’s broken down by the bacteria, forming a layer commonly called “sludge”. The rest of the liquid waste, meanwhile, will be able to flow more easily through the tank and out into a drainage field. 

The water that leaves the tank is far cleaner than the water that entered, meaning there is less harm caused to the environment by its release. Meanwhile, the harmful substances in the solid sludge left behind will need to be removed as part of cleaning and maintenance.
