Dyfi Waste can install septic tanks in any size property, or replace existing ones.
Our service includes drainage pipes and soakaway system.
A Septic Tank, usually in the shape of a bottle, settles and partially digests the settled sewage.
However the effluent from a correctly sized tank still contains about 70% of the original polluting matter.
Therefore the liquid is discharged into a soakaway system of land drains, which allows the ground to treat the pollutants.
Details of how the ground may be used are contained in BS 6297.
Dyfi Waste will perform a percolation test to see whether or not the ground will absorb the liquid and remove the pollutants.
If the ground cannot do do this (e.g. if it’s clay) then a cess pit may be needed.
The septic tank should be emptied at least annually.
A consent will be required for a new installation.
If a septic tank and land drainage system are unable to treat the sewage, then one of the following must be used:
- Conventional Sewage Treatment Plant
- Reed Bed system
- Modern Packaged Sewage Treatment Plant
- Pumping Station.
