We have the experience and knowledge to properly maintain your septic tank, making sure that the pipes are unblocked and remain this way. Maintaining a septic tank yourself is dangerous, which is why we use excellent equipment when providing this service.

Problems that occur with septic tanks, such as an overfilled septic tank, odour and roots ingress, can be avoided through regular planned drain maintenance. It is recommended that your tank is checked at least once every 12 months for a family of 4.

Frequently Asked Questions about Septic Tanks

A septic tank is an underground wastewater treatment system that is commonly used in areas where there is no access to a centralized sewer system. It is typically made of concrete, fiberglass, or plastic and is designed to collect and treat household wastewater on-site.

A septic tank separates solids from liquids in wastewater. Upon entering the tank, wastewater undergoes natural decomposition and separation. Solids settle as sludge, while oils and grease rise as scum. Clarified liquid (effluent) exits the tank and enters the drainfield for further treatment and soil dispersal.

Pumping frequency depends on factors such as tank size and household occupancy. It is generally recommended to pump your septic tank once every 2 to 4 years. Contact Maintain Drains for personalised advice on your pumping schedule.

Look out for signs like slow drains, foul odours, dampness, gurgling sounds, or overly green grass around the drainfield. These indicate the need for maintenance. Prompt action by a professional is essential.

The cost of septic tank maintenance varies based on factors like tank size and location. For accurate pricing tailored to your needs, get in touch with Maintain Drains.
