What is a septic tank?


These days septic tanks are usually buried underground and out of sight so you won’t have an unsightly tank sitting on your lawn. They will have an inlet pipe connected to your house’s drainage pipes and an outlet pipe leading to a ‘soakaway’ – a field or large area that has been approved to take the water drainage that the septic tank lets out. The solid waste will accumulate at the bottom of the tank as ‘sludge’ and this is what will need to be emptied once it builds up. Septic tank emptying will usually need to happen once a year, which is where Portsmouth, Hampshire waste management and septic tank companies come in. A cesspit or cesspool is similar to a septic tank but does not syphon off the water, and so it will need emptying more regularly.

Always check with your local authority if you plan on installing a septic tank or your own sewerage system because there will be drainage and septic tank regulations you will need to adhere to.
