Septic tanks, just how do they work?



A septic tank is made up of the tank itself and a drainage field(soakaway) or water course discharge point. Sewage is fed into the tank and the tank performs primary filtering, the liquid then leaves the tank and enters the Soakaway. This is where naturally occurring bacteria in the soil performs secondary treatment. Septic tanks are cheaper than sewage treatment plants and they do not usually require power supply unless an uplift pump is necessary, if however you would like some information on sewage treatment plants or would like a quote to supply and install one please get in touch and we would be more that happy to give you some advice and a quote.

 

 
It is important to ensure your septic tank is regularly maintained to ensure it works perfectly. Unfortunately, this is not always the case and many owners leave it too late until it becomes an emergency. This leads to high repair and maintenance costs that can be avoided by calling in experts from CJ Lyons to help we will put you on a plan so the tank is cleaned and checked on a regular basis so you never get any nasty suprises.
