Retrofit Septic Tank FAQs
What are the environmental concerns of septic tanks?
Local authorities have begun to understand how damaging certain septic tanks can be to the environment. Therefore, they are now suggesting that systems with higher effluent cleansing efficiency should be the standard. Clean effluent is approved to discharge into streams and waterway. Meanwhile, less efficient systems discharge more harmful substances and undigested, unfiltered waste – this is bad for the environment.
It is worth considering having a retrofitted system installed as the longevity of newer materials and components mean that your sewage treatment systems will be one less thing to worry about. Aside from the annual cleaning and maintenance checks, the system will work beautifully and cause less problems than an older system.
What is the new legislation affecting effluent discharge?
Property owners with septic tanks discharging into ditches and streams will need to have a retrofitted system installed to improve the effluent cleansing to a legal standard.
