It is estimated that around 14,600 Otago properties, or 38,000 people (around one in five Otago residents) are serviced by septic tanks. Typically if it is just the cleaning mashine, soap part have developed a crust in that pipe. Try by using a drain cleaner on the drain pipe for your washer. Sketch a map of your septic system exhibiting the location of all components and keep it with your maintenance and repair files. This will make maintenance easier and be useful to future owners.
Council's Environmental Health Product is responsible for ensuring that the set up and alteration of onsite wastewater treatment systems (septic tanks) throughout the Shire is done in accordance with the current Environment Protection Power (EPA) code of practice. A septic tank in a natural way produces gases (brought on by bacteria breaking down the organic material in the wastewater), and these gases don't smell good. Sinks therefore have loops of tube called P-traps that hold water in the low loop and block the gases from moving back into the home. The gases stream up a vent tube instead - if you look at the roof top of any house, you will notice a number of vent pipes poking through.
Getting rid of waste is essential, whether it's done via sewer or septic tank. However, the first is greener than the other when done correctly - so let's take a look at the positive reasons to employ a septic tank. Such installations may place the septic container downhill from the building so that building drainage does not need a sewage pump; but in order to obtain the septic drainfield an acceptable distance from the lake or waterway the machine may have included an effluent pumping stop: so the tank is downhill however the drainfield may be uphill from the positioning of the building itself.
