In accordance with BS6297 our Septic Tanks are a very small scale sewage treatment system because they are divided in to two parts (chambers), separating the solids from the liquid.
The solids remaining in the first part of the tank will need to be removed occassionally. The waste liquid is sent to a correctly sized irrigation system as specified in PPG4 amd BS 6297.
The horizontal design of the Septic Tank provides good maintenance access. Savings are made on installation costs compared to spherical designs holding the same capacity.
The above requires manhole cover(s) and lid(s) (not included). Due to the weights involved covers and lids are expensive to transport and often cost more to ship than they are worth so we advise you source your own. You can purchase covers and lids from most builders merchants and below is a guide to assist you choosing the best type for the duty.

EA and SEPA Pollution Prevention Guidelines (PPG)
The EA and SEPA Pollution Prevention Guidelines (PPG) which are jointly produced by the Environment Agency for England and Wales, the Scottish Environment Protection Agency, and the Environment and Heritage Service for Northern Ireland (Ref PPG3 / PPG13 / PPG4 / PPG 14) suggest that Class 2 wash bay silt traps and interceptors should be connected only to a mains foul drain, and Class 1 separators to surface drain.
The above assumes you have the consent to connect any outflow to a suitable drain as per the appropriate PPG Guideline. While we always endeavour to provide best advice and accurate information, it the responsibility of the client and/or landowner to comply with the law. Following any guideline doesnít remove your responsibility to comply with the law and prevent pollution from your activities. Causing or allowing pollution is a criminal offence; compliance with any guidance isnít a defence. You should make sure that the references to other sources of guidance are still current.
