What Size Septic Tank Do I Need?

Properties that are not connected to a sewer require either a primary or secondary wastewater treatment system, otherwise known as a septic tank, to treat any wastewater generated on site by the household. When it comes to septic tanks, the ranges are diverse; septic tanks come in an array of shapes, functions and materials and they can be installed either above or underground. Most notably, however, septic tanks come in all different sizes. This level of choice makes knowing what size septic tank is right for your property, difficult.

On average 200-300 litres of wastewater is generated, per person, per day. While this is a good estimation and guide, it is not enough to simply multiply that figure by the amount of people living in a home. While how many people reside in a household is a key point for consideration, our team of experts also consider the lifestyle of each person in the household. For example, a household may consist of a single adult couple. Both adults may shower once a day, be largely absent from the property during business hours and, therefore, produce little wastewater. Or a household may consist of two adults and three teenagers; several and lengthy showers may be taken daily, taps might be used consistently throughout the day and the washing of clothes may occur more frequently compared to a couple living alone. The reality is that there is no simple answer, and the question of size is best answered through speaking with a professional member of our team.
