Understanding Your Role in Septic Tank Maintenance

As a septic tank owner, it’s vital to grasp the significance of responsible and regular septic tank maintenance. Neglecting this duty could lead to the septic tank becoming an issue for the public, the environment, or public health – thereby involving your local council authority.

Keeping your septic tank or cesspit well-maintained is not just good practice; it’s a legal requirement to stay compliant.

To determine if a permit is necessary for your tank, consult the Environment Agency. Upholding these responsibilities ensures that your septic tank operates within legal boundaries while safeguarding the environment and the community.

Crucial Responsibilities for Legal Adherence

  1. Regular Desludging: Regularly desludging or empty your septic tank to prevent environmental harm or pollution.
  2. Prompt Fault Repairs: Address any faults or issues promptly to prevent escalation.
  3. Vigilant Inspection: Monthly inspections of the sewage release area to identify potential problems.
  4. Scheduled Emptying: Have your septic tank or cesspit emptied at least once a year by Coastal Drains or another registered waste carrier.
  5. Discharge Limits: Adhere to the discharge limits – no more than 2,000 litres of sewage per day into the ground, or 5,000 litres of treated sewage per day into flowing water. Exceeding these limits necessitates a permit.

Recognising When Your Septic Tank Needs Emptying

Vital Signs for Timely Septic Tank Emptying

Being vigilant about the signs that indicate your septic tank requires emptying is crucial for its proper functioning. Detecting these indicators early can prevent complications and maintain the efficiency of your septic system.

  1. Pooling Water: If water accumulates around your septic tank’s drainage field, it suggests a potential clog in the piping system. Debris build-up could force liquid to the surface.
  2. Persistent Slow Drainage: Slow-draining sinks and toilets that remain sluggish even after unblocking may indicate a full septic tank.
  3. Foul Odours: Detecting foul or unusual odours around the septic tank area signifies potential issues requiring attention.
  4. Overflowing Sludge or Scum: If your system discharges into water, look for signs of overflowing sludge or scum in the water.
