Septic Tanks come in various sizes but generally operate the same way. A septic tank generally consists of a tank (or sometimes more than one tank) of between 4000 and 7500 liters (1,000 and 2,000 gallons) in size connected to an inlet wastewater pipe at one end and a septic drain field at the other. In general, these pipe connections are made via a T pipe, which allows liquid entry and exit without disturbing any crust on the surface.
Septic Tank Regulations
Today, the design of the tank usually incorporates two chambers (each of which is equipped with a manhole cover), which are separated by means of a dividing wall that has openings located about midway between the floor and roof of the tank. To discuss your requirements please call us. At present the Environment Agency in the United Kingdom is inviting property owners with small scale septic tanks to register them with the organisation such that an exemption certificate may be granted.
However, it is likely that a number of users of such systems may find that their system falls outside of the tolerances applied in order to claim exemption and as such a bespoke permit may be required.
