What is a Septic Tank?

All homes without a direct connection to a Main Sewer have either a septic or Bio cycle tank to collect waste water. There are three main sections to a septic tank system. These are the tank, the peculation area and the soil. The system works as follows

  • Waste leaves the house through the pipe network to the septic tank
  • The waste stays here for around 24 hours, during which the solid waste sinks to the bottom of the tank.
  • The waste water  flows slowly through to the peculation area.
  • The percolation area is made up of a system of pipes. These pipes are perforated and this allows the waste water to flow through.
  • The wastewater then goes through a gravel layer until it meets soil.
  • The soil organisms are the final stage of treatment for the waste water

Septic Tank Layout CES


A correctly maintained Septic Tank, Bio-Cycle requires little maintenance. A tank should be emptied every 12 to 18 Months. This depends of the following factors

  • Number of people in the House
  • Size of Tank
  • Is water from down pipes running into tank?

Septic Tank Regulations

·         All Septic Tanks must be registered.

  • A registration fee must be paid
  • All new systems must be registered within 90 days of being connected.
  • Operate and maintain the system so it is fit for purpose and fully operational.
  • Ensure that the tank system cannot pollute the environment.
  • De-sludge the system at regular intervals to ensure tank is working at its best.
  • Keep receipt from tank emptying for 5 years for proof of correct disposal at time of inspection

What is a Septic Inspection?

Inspections are carried out by Local authorities. Your local authority will contact you prior to any inspection. If your system is working correctly there will be no further action. However if there is an issue you will be issued a notice from the local authority. This may require you to improve the maintenance of the system or upgrade system.
