Septic tanks tips for owners
Owners of domestic waste water treatment systems need to:
- Know where your septic tank is located
- Operate and maintain the system so it is fit for purpose and fully operational
- Ensure that the system cannot pollute the environment by discharging or leaking waste anywhere it is not supposed to, that is, into the ground or any water source
- Ensure that roof water or surface water run-off cannot enter a domestic waste water treatment system
- De-sludge the system at intervals appropriate to the tank capacity and the number of people resident in the premises connected to it, or as recommended by the system’s manufacturer. De-sludging should be carried out by an authorised contractor. You should keep the receipt from the contractor for 5 years
