Septic Tank Blockage

We are frequently called to both domestic and commercial properties to septic tank blockage situations and back-ups in drainage systems, and we never cease to be amazed at some of the things we find causing septic tank blockage.

The fact of the matter is – and we don’t want to be too blue here – there are certain things that just should not be flushed down toilets if you want to avoid a septic tank blockage; particularly in the case of off-mains drainage and septic tanks.

Customers are repeatedly advised not to flush away nappies, feminine products and baby wipes etc down their toilets, whether they be on main sewers or off-mains drainage, to avoid septic tank blockages.

Of course, with a septic tank or sewage treatment plant system these are more likely to cause blockages due to the pipework involved, and it is not just the toilet that is connected to the treatment plant – remember anything that goes down a plug-hole ends up in the plant!
