There are strict government guidelines surrounding septic tanks, and if you have one on your property you most probably need to have a permit in order to have it.
Septic tanks make use of natural biological processes to break down waste matter. They discharge liquid which can be made safe when drained to well aerated soil or by another final treatment. If the natural processes within the septic tank stop working there can be real problems. Groundwater can become polluted which can affect the water supply for livestock or drinking water, as well as nearby rivers and streams.
Unlike a cesspit, a septic tank does have an outlet for liquid to drain to a soakaway. Because of this, septic tanks are only emptied every year or so. Here at Active Pump Services we can provide a full sewage tankering service for you. We have our own dedicated tanker for emptying cesspits and septic tanks, and will make sure everything is done quickly and seamlessly for you.
Under the Environment Agency General Binding Rules, if you have a septic tank that discharges liquid directly to surface water (such as a ditch or stream), it will need to be replaced or upgraded to a full sewage treatment plant by January 1st 2020. If you are selling your property before this date, you must upgrade your septic tank to a sewage treatment plant before selling. This can sound like a massive undertaking, but we are fully equipped and able to help you in order to make things run smoothly and efficiently.
