How often should I clean my septic tank?
Septic tanks should be inspected and cleaned every 3 years to prevent costly failures.
How does a septic tank work?
A septic tank accepts all wastewater from a house. Naturally occurring bacteria break down the waste into solids, which settle on the bottom, and scum, which settles on the top. The remaining wastewater in the middle is then channelled through a series of pipes for dispersion under the lawn, known as a leach field.
Why does a septic tank system fail?
After many years or heavy usage, the solids and scum can build up to unacceptable levels and prevent the drainage of wastewater into the leach field. Most people notice this due to an unusually wet lawn, or a toilet that wont flush properly, as the waste has nowhere to go. Routine maintenance can prevent costly failures.
I’m on septic, what cant I put down the drain?
Many kitchen and bathroom cleaners are unsuitable to put in septic tanks as they contain chemicals such as bleach, which kill the good bacteria in your tank and cause premature failure. Check product labels for suitability. Sanitary napkins and disposable nappies will also cause a blockage and result in failure.
How much does it cost to clean my septic?
The average septic tank is usually 3200 litres, and costs around $400 to clean, provided we have direct access to the lid. Prices can vary with tank size, accessibility to the tank and problems found, if any. Generally tanks just need a clean out and no further cost is incurred.
Where is the septic waste taken?
Gippsland Septic Service has a tanker agreement with several wastewater treatment plants, operated by Victorian Government Water Authorities.
How long before you can clean out my septic?
Gippsland Septic Service will endeavour to meet our customers needs by acting in a timely manner, as we understand sometimes things just can’t wait. Routine cleanouts will be done within 3 days, usually sooner, and emergency work as required.
