Hi-Tec Drains offers the complete package when it comes to waste management systems: we can provide new installations, comprehensive inspections of your system to identify any repair or maintenance requirements, as well as organising the cleaning and emptying of your septic tank or treatment plant.
IT IS ESSENTIAL THAT ALL SEPTIC TANKS AND TREATMENT PLANTS ARE MAINTAINED REGULARLY INCLUDING BEING EMPTIED PROFESSIONALLY EVERY 18 MONTHS - 2 YEARS AS A MINIMUM REQUIREMENT.
WHAT ARE SEPTIC TANKS & TREATMENT PLANTS?
Septic tanks are usually found in rural areas,where there is no main sewers. The chemicals in the tank break down the waste and separates it into 3 layers: a bottom sludge layer, a middle layer of clean water and a top layer which generally consists of grease and foam. As new waste enters the tank, the almost clean water is discharged into a soakaway. However septic tanks are not allowed to discharge into a water course or in areas where there is a high water table.
Treatment plants are the modern version of a septic tank. The discharge from the plant is so clean that it can be discharged directly into a water course, making it more environmentally friendly and an ideal solution to properties close to a river or in areas with high water tables.
At Hi-Tec Drains, we have many years of experience in installing new treatment plants and septic tanks for a range of clients, from small rural properties to large commercial sites. The size of plant required will depend on the number of people at the property - we have the capabilities to install and manage treatment plants from 6 up to 600 people!
