The Benefits of Installing a Septic Tank in Worthing
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.
Septic Tanks and Your Responsibility
Legally, the operator of a septic tank system is responsible for its maintenance and all associated costs and fees. You are considered an operator by the UK government if:
- You own the property that uses the system
- You own a property that shares a system with other properties (in these cases, each property owner is considered 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, the Environment Agency will be able to help. Contact them as soon as possible if you already have a septic tank, or if you are planning on having one installed and would like more information.
The Benefits of Installing a Septic Tank
If your property is not connected to a main sewer line and domestic sewage treatment plants are not an option, the next best option is to have a septic tank. There are a number of benefits to having a septic tank installed in Worthing:
- Your property tax will be reduced, because you will no longer be connected to a municipal sewer system
- Septic tanks are the second-most environmentally friendly of all the private drainage systems
- Septic tank installations carried out by BlockBusters have a lifespan of around 40 years, meaning you will not have to worry about replacing your tank for a long time
How Does a Septic Tank Work?
Septic tanks are designed to break down organic waste matter and harmful substances using bacteria, separating solid waste from the wastewater that drains out of a property.
In the tank itself, oils and grease in the wastewater will float above the rest of the collected material. These will then be gathered behind effluent filters to stop them from moving through the system. The rest of the solid material in the wastewater will be broken down by the bacteria and settle at the bottom of the tank, forming a layer commonly known as “sludge”. The rest of the liquid waste will continue to move through the rest of the tank and eventually be released into a drainage field (which you might also see called a “soakaway”).
By the time the water passes out into the drainage field, it is far cleaner than it was when it entered the tank. This means it will cause less harm to the environment when it is released into the drainage field. Meanwhile, the harmful substances in the solid sludge left behind will have to be regularly removed as part of clearing the tank.
