Septic tanks have two compartments. When waste flows into the tank, solids remain in the first container. The liquid then flows into the second area to be treated before being drained into the drainage field.
Septic tanks, or sewage treatment plants are typically used when properties don’t have direct access to sewer drainage. Instead, a drainage system is put in place to treat any waste and dispose of the treated liquid.
If your current septic tank releases treated water into a ditch or another watercourse – rather than a proper drainage field – contact Hampshire Drainage immediately. This system is now outdated and illegal.
We can help provide an inspection of the current system, as well as providing a new septic tank installation if needed.
