How often do I have to empty a septic tank?
This depends on how much waste your household creates. Remember it is only solids that really build up. The Australian Department of Health recommends pumping tanks every 5 years however it depends how much solid waste is flushed into the tank. Pumping out the tank must be done by a licensed liquid waste contractor who can then take the waste to a processing facility. Your local council will be able to advise if there are any EPA regulations in your area.
IMPORTANT: Nobody should ever enter the Septic Tank – It is a confined space and once operating is a health risk
Polymaster septic tanks come with tamper-proof screws to make sure there are no dangers once the tank is installed and buried.
