Conventional Septic Tanks General Overview
There is a lot of information on the internet regarding septic tanks, below is a very simply overview of a conventional septic tank. If you are planning on installing a septic tanks, keep in mind the septic tank must comply with the Australian Standard AS/NZS 1546.1.
Conventional Septic Tanks are a minimum 3200 litres, waste water is retained within the tank for a minimum of 24 hours where solids settle to the bottom of the tank and anaerobic digestion of organic solids occur. The liquid content is discharged to absorption trenches preferably by gravity or by a pump well where sufficient fall cannot be achieved.
Septic tanks are to be de-sludged every three years or as required upon assessment by a suitable contractor. Septic tanks need to be installed on stable ground and all inspection openings must be at ground level so that the tank can be located and maintained i.e. inspection openings, inlet of septic tank access lids.
