Anyone with experience in rural and non-central living locations will most likely have come across septic tanks before. They are more common than you might think and are used all across the country in lots of different locations and settings.
Here at Darwin Pools we specialise in the installation of brand new septic tanks, as well as repairs of existing units. If there is something to know about septic tanks, you can be sure that we already have vast knowledge on the topic!
On the other hand, we also understand that an average layperson won’t share the knowledge, so it is up to us to fill you in and make sure you are on top of things! If you are about to undertake a new septic tank installation, here are some of the main things that you need to know.
- When thinking about the size of septic tank that you need, it is generally decided based upon the number of people that are going to be living in or regularly using the property’s amenities. The more people present, the larger you are going to need the septic tank to be.
- The next step will be installation, and whilst some people try to complete this process on their own, we think it is a much better idea to have a professional firm take control. The last thing you want is to cause damage to the tank before you have even put it in working order.
- Good ventilation is something that needs to be paid attention to. It is so often overlooked to a detrimental effect. Bad ventilation around a septic tank can lead to undesirable odour problems that can make your living environment borderline unbearable.
- It is also vital to understand that your care and duty doesn’t stop once the septic tank is installed. You are going to need to undertake regular maintenance checks to ensure that no cracks or other problems are occurring under the ground. It is always better to fix a small new problem than a big old one.
If you need a company for septic tank installation anytime soon, then please don’t hesitate to get in touch with us.
