Septic Tank Services

Septic tanks have to be frequently cleaned, inspected and maintained. This is essential not just from a sanitary, but also an aesthetic point of view. It's also required according to current legislation. It'll minimise the risk of pollution and damage to the environment. If you are in or around Wigan or the North West of England, contact D4 Drains to find out more about our range of comprehensive septic tank services.

Septic tanks are underground wastewater treatment structures, often used in rural areas without centralised sewage systems. They take advantage of nature with a mix of proven technology to deal with wastewater. This typically includes family plumbing created by bathrooms; kitchen drains pipes, as well as washing. Septic systems are not commonplace in urban areas as urban waste tends to be treated and transported through the sewer system. This is maintained by the utility company in the local area.

A normal septic system contains a septic tank and a drain field for the treated water to be absorbed. As you know, every time you turn on a tap, flush a toilet, or do a lot of washing, the water as well as waste is taken from the house and into the septic tank. The solid waste drops to the bottom, and other wastes may float. As more water goes into the septic tank, an equivalent amount gets pushed out to the drain field.

How do I fix Septic Tank Soakaway Problems?

If the wastewater could not saturate into the soil under the drain field, sewage might back up into the system producing two distinct signs. Wastewater puddling on the ground, or sewage backing up into the house. If the water does not drop after flushing the toilet, or you can hear a distinctive gurgling sound from the drains, this is a tell-tale sign that the tank or a drain field is not accepting water.
