That doesn’t mean you don’t need to take care of them – you take care of yourself to make sure you work efficiently, like you take care of your car so it doesn’t break down.

What would happen if you ate a handful of baby wipes and cotton buds?

Yes, you would have a blockage and probably end up very ill

Or, what would happen if you put diesel in your petrol car (most of us have done it at some point)?

Yes, your car would break down, ruin your day and cost a lot of money to fix.

Septic Tanks and Treatment Plants, are the same – What you put in gets treated and comes out the other side

Septic Tanks  Care and Maintenance

Regular Inspection and Annual De-sludge are really important to ensure your tank is working efficiently.

Equally important is taking care of what enters the system.

Simply Feed it with the right fuel – it will run well!  

Feed it with junk – it will break down!

A common problem are baby wipes entering the system – Septic tanks & Drains don’t like baby wipes
