Septic tanks, coupled with French drains (absorption tanks) are one of the most common sewage waste treatment processes used in South Africa. We have over 28 years of experience dealing with all aspects of septic tanks – from installation to repairs and maintenance.
How Septic Tanks Work
The solid waste settles to the bottom of the tanker, while the scum floats to the top and the liquid effluent flows through an outlet pipe into a distribution chamber, where it is directed to the septic field. The septic field is an effluent water disposal system, where the liquid is channelled through perforated pipes to different parts of a field of loose gravel.
