Household detergents and other chemicals discharged down the waste system slow or stop the natural biological action inside septic tanks by killing off the natural micro-organisms that normally digest the waste products. This leads to a build up of deposits and eventual blockage and malfunctioning of the system with the inevitable ensuing bad odours and smells.
Drain Away Drains would be pleased to give you as much advice as you need regarding any septic tank issue and we can arrange a visit if necessary. We can repair your existing tank system or supply and install a new septic tank.
With recent changes to the regulations coming into force, you may be required to upgrade your existing system to comply. The updated regulation, called the General binding rules: small sewage discharge to a surface water, means wastewater from a septic tank can no longer flow directly into a local watercourse. If you still own a system that still flows directly into a local watercourse, it must be replaced by 1 January 2020 or you could face a hefty fine.
