Septic tank installations Victoria-wideApril 30, 2017
If you live in an area without municipal sewer access then septic tank installations in Victoria are crucial.
Septic tanks allow you to effectively treat your home’s sewage on your property without harming people’s health or polluting the environment. Get the process wrong, and the consequences can be truly frightening.
So what actually is a septic tank? Put simply, it’s a watertight tank, often made of concrete and usually sited underground, which collects wastewater piped from your home. Bacteria works on the solids, turning them into sludge that settles on the bottom of the tank while oil and greasy substances form a floating scum. The wastewater travels out of the tank to a drainfield, where the soil naturally filters it to remove harmful bacteria and viruses as well as nutrients.
It’s a simple, effective way for people not connected to mains sewer systems to safely treat domestic wastewater. These wastewater workhorses are in common use across the nation, especially in rural and regional areas.
