Liquid Salvage

Are there bad odours coming from your septic tank, drains or toilets? Do you hear ominous gurgling noises coming from the pipes? Has it been more than four years since you last had your septic tank pumped? If the answer to any of these questions is yes, it’s time to call the septic tank cleaning experts at Ballantyne Plumbing, Gas and Electrical.

Septic Tanks

Many of the businesses we service in Western Australia don’t have the luxury of being connected to a sewer, so they rely on septic tanks for their liquid waste removal. Everything that gets sent down the pipes ends up in these septic tanks, where water and solid waste material are slowly separated. The clarified water then overflows into leach drains or dry wells and soaks away into the ground, while the solid waste accumulates in the tanks.

Why Do Septic Tanks Need Pumping?

All septic tanks need pumping out occasionally. Over time the sludge that builds up in them will cause their leach drains to fail, resulting in sewage backing up into your building or the surrounding earth. This is obviously something you want to avoid! Even before they fail, poorly maintained septic tanks can contaminate nearby waterways and harm the environment. If a septic tank has not been pumped for a while, the wastewater that it releases into surrounding soil can contain high concentrations of harmful chemicals and heavy metals, which then filter into streams and groundwater. By having your septic tanks regularly serviced and pumped you can eliminate bad odours as well as any health risks to your personnel and the local environment. Proper care and maintenance of your tanks will also help ensure their longevity, saving you money in the long run.
