What Should You Know Before You Install A Septic Tank?

Although septic tanks are not as prevalent as they once were, many homes across Australia still use septic tanks over sewer systems. Septic tanks are cost-efficient and offer numerous benefits, many people do not understand how to properly use them.

If you’re thinking about installing a septic tank in your home, it’s important that you understand the proper upkeep of a septic tank before it is installed. In this article, we’ll discuss what you should know before having a septic tank installed.

Cleaning your septic tank

One of the main benefits of installing a septic tank is that septic plumbing cleaning only has to happen every three to five years. There are a number of reasons why it’s so important to clean your septic tank within this time frame. Without regular maintenance, septic tanks can erode and can cause leakages or backups. Although you might worry that septic tank cleaning is expensive, at C & S Plumbing, we offer affordable and reliable septic cleaning services.

Understanding how a septic tank works

Septic Tank InstallationBefore you have a septic tank installed, it is important that you understand how a septic tank actually works. All of your water that you use in your home will drain through one pipe into the tank. From here, the liquids will separate, and the solids will reach the bottom of the tank, while oils and other fats will stay at the top. These will stay in the tank, while the rest of the wastewater is drained into the soil, which provides it with extra nutrients. Better yet, the natural filtration of the soil ensures that animals aren’t made ill by the contents.

Improving your water efficiency

If you’re thinking about installing a septic tank, you may have been looking at eco-friendly options such as Eco-Septic. These tanks are specifically designed to be environmentally friendly, but it’s also important that you do your part to ensure that you’re not wasting water. In fact, septic tanks work better and are less likely to get damaged if you work to reduce your water usage, as well as being more eco-friendly. You can reduce or manage your water usage by making simple changes, such as turning taps off while brushing your teeth and having shorter showers.
