What sewage system maintenance do we do?
No matter what sewage system you have, we can look after the maintenance of it. This includes AWTS Maintenance (Aerated Wastewater Treatment Systems) and septic systems with sand filters.
How often should you arrange septic tank maintenance and servicing?
When it comes to septic tank maintenance, every manufacturer has specific guidelines to ensure you meet council bylaws, so always check any paperwork you have been provided and speak with the manufacturer directly. As a general guide however, at a minumum:
Aerated systems should be inspected quarterly.
Sand filters (secondary treatment for septic systems) should be checked annually.
Reports must also be sent to your local Council following inspections and maintenance.
