Septic Tank Installation Contractors

Septic Tank Installation Contractors have extensive expereince in providing high-quality septic tank services across Essex and the surrounding areas. Most of the sewage from UK homes and organisations pass through into channels and sewage systems. In any case, not all properties are associated with the mains sewer lines, especially more established properties and those in pastoral areas. All things considered, the sewage from your home will be directed into a septic tank, sewage treatment plant or cesspit that can be installed outside your property.

What is a Sewage Treatment Plant?

The Sewage Treatment Plant process is similar to the way that a Septic Tank works but mechanical components provide additional processes to help break down solids to produce a cleaner, more environmentally friendly effluent.

What is a Septic Tank?

A septic tank has two chambers and is buried underground in the same way as a cesspit. As wastewater enters the first tank, solids settle at the bottom and begin to decompose, while liquid flows through to the second chamber. This allows any smaller suspended solids to settle and the water to exit the tank through the soak-away.

 

What is a Cesspit?

A cesspit is a sealed underground tank that simply collects wastewater and sewage. There is no processing or treatment involved. A cesspit is usually located underground with a manhole cover giving access for waste collection.

What is a Pumping Station?

They are for Properties that have a waste water system which cannot have ‘gravity fed’ connection. This means the waste water cannot naturally flow from the property to a mains sewer or sewage treatment system.

What is a Grease Trap?

A grease trap is a plumbing device designed to intercept most greases and solids before they enter a wastewater disposal system. Common wastewater contains small amounts of oils which enter into septic tanks and treatment facilities to form a floating scum layer.

What is a Soak-away?

A soak-away is a system comprise’s of a hole dug into the ground and filled with rubble and coarse stones. This allows surface water that would otherwise begin to pool to soak back down into the earth. Often the soak-away is placed away from the flooding area and a pipe connects the area to the soak-away in the form of a gutter or drain.
