Advice: Septic Tanks

We inherited a septic tank when we moved into our current property. Is it suitable for our modern lifestyle?

It depends on the size and structure of the septic tank system, as well as on the condition of the soakaway.

If the tank is more than 25–30 years old, it’s unlikely to cope for very long with modern lifestyles. That’s because today we use much more water, detergents and so on, which can impose demands that your old septic tank system was never designed to handle.

A simple inspection of your system can be carried out to check septic tank levels and ascertain if there are any potential problems.
