What are the Septic tank options for homeowners

Septic tank options for homeowners include the Tricel septic tank system, which is manufactured to the highest international standard. It is suitable for sewage treatment where sufficient land is available for an adequate drainage field and you have received approval from the planning authority. You may install a septic tank where soil conditions are suitable for treatment of wastewater by meeting the standards set by the Environmental Protection Agency.

The holding tank is designed to contain the solids and prevent them from entering the percolation area. The percolation area must be designed adequately for treatment of the discharged effluent liquid. As the majority of treatment of waste is carried out in the percolation area, the system and percolation area is designed in accordance with the BS 6297:1983 and EN12566-1:2007 standards.

How a Septic Tank works

Stage 1: 

Wastewater flows by gravity into Chamber 1, where the solids and heavier material settle to the base of the unit. A small amount of anaerobic breakdown occurs at this stage.

Stage 2:

The liquid and lighter waste material flow over the baffle into the second chamber. A layer of scum forms at the top of the liquid. A specially designed outlet pipe is fitted to the unit to ensure that only the liquid flows into the percolation area. This dip pipe prevents the scum from passing into the percolation area which may block pipes.

Stage 3:

Final improvement of the waste water occurs as it penetrates through a specially designed percolation area.
