How to Choose a Septic System
1 – Research
The first step in choosing a septic tank is to do your research, checking into local regulations and the local council will save you from further complications down the line. Your local council can inform you on what kind of septic system you are allowed for your particular purpose and application.
2 – What type of septic systems do we offer
We offer a range of Polymer and Concrete Septic tanks in a variety of different sizes, starting from 1600L and going all the way to 6000L. We also have a variety of septic tank risers, access covers, and pump wells to help you optimize your septic system.
The tank size and choice of the tank will be dependent on the size of the home and also the location of the tank.
3 – Tank capacity
Septic tank capacity is determined by the size of your house as well as your local Council. The most common size and our most popular tank are our 3000L Polymer Septic Tank, as this is suitable for a domestic home for up to 5 people. Whilst a 4000L septic tank is suitable for a domestic home of up to 8 people.
4 – How does a septic tank work?
A septic tank is an underground tank responsible for basic wastewater processing and disposal. It is an option for rural homes and properties that are too far away in distance to link to the local sewer lines. A septic tank is usually manufactured in Concrete or Polymer forms. In most cases, you can find it away from the house, generally at the property’s side or back.
It is a fairly basic process where the majority of systems are gravity fed- where the household plumbing will flow into the septic tank, in which the waste and water are separated. From there the solids will settle to the bottom forming a sludge layer and the fats and greases will form a scum layer at the top of the surface. Bacteria will naturally break down the wastewater before it goes to the effluent disposal area which is normally through a covered soil absorption system or mound system. The effluent from a Septic tank is not suitable for above-ground irrigation.
5 – How does a septic tank work?
Currently, we offer both polymer and concrete septic tanks, but what’s the difference? Polymer tanks are lightweight, last longer, and are easier to install, making them a more economical and easier solution for your application. In terms of differences, there isn’t much difference between a concrete tank and a polymer tank, apart from their aesthetic look, as they all meet the same standards, hold the same literate and do the same functions.
6 – Installation
For installation, only a licensed plumber is able to install the tank for you. They will also fill in the necessary paperwork for your local Council or Shire.
