How the system works is that once the toilet is flushed the “lets call them solids :-)” flow into the septic tank. Even if they originally sink once the bacterial breakdown process starts the solids will float to the top of the tank where the breakdown process continues till their is nothing left. A clear odourless water then filters down from around midway to the bottom of the tank and the “clean” water then goes to your soak away where it is absorbed into the surrounding area.
NBNBNB if a smell occurs this is generally due to people placing a chemical down the toilet say jik or jays fluid which completely destroys the bacterial content of the tank and stops its functioning.
Need assistance or advise give us a call :-).
Septic and conservancy tank sizing available from 1800lt up to large systems of 100 000lt or more.
French drain systems available with your septic tank purchase.
From time to time a inspection of the tank may be required as sludge build up will occur and may need to be de-sludged. This may only be required every say 5 years and will just be toilet tissue etc that has not been broken up by the bacteria.
