Septic Tanks

Septic Tanks

For rural locations, septic tanks are the most likely solution

In Auckland, many areas, especially those in more rural locations, will require their own on-site disposal systems. The most common form of this is a septic tank. Septic tanks can be confused with cesspits which also store household biological waste, but unlike a cesspit, septic tanks have an outlet which allows the liquid part of the waste to drain away. As a result, they require emptying far less frequently.

Drainage Solutions can help you to select the right septic tank system for your property, install, and help maintain it and pump it regularly.

Septic tank capacity requirements will vary depending on; what goes into the system, how many people use it, whether grey water is recycled. They require pumping approximately every 3-5 years (depending on use) and this should always be done by a professional.

Modern septic tank systems can include pumps, pressurized disposal with multiple chambers and filters. Talk to Drainage Solutions to find the right septic tank for your situation.
