Septic Waste Tanks Domestic
A septic tank consists of one storage tank designed to allow the solid and liquids waste to separate slowly. These tanks must be water tight to allow no contamination into the ground. Bacteriological action will take place and so that liquid can safely exit the tank to a soakaway system, where liquids can be dispersed into the ground. These tanks are usually placed in properties that cannot connect to mains drainage. All raw sewage and waste water will feed into the tank from the property.
These tanks can vary from any shape and size, we have the ability to reach tanks that are not always easily accessible.
The homeowner has a responsibility to maintain their tank, you should always check your tank from time to time, and pump out the waste to ensure it is working to the best of its ability. We recommend your tank to be emptied once a year, but we also operate a call off service for when you require it.
We can arrange a service at a time and date to suit you.
After each visit we will provide you with a waste removal ticket, which you would need if you were ever to sell your property in line with the Environmental Agency Legislation.
Burnham Portable Toilet Hire will provide you with all necessary insurance certificates, waste carriers licence, permit to discharge and waste transfer notes.
