The majority of properties in the UK are connected to public waste water treatment centres.  For those homes and buildings who are off the beaten track, and aren’t supported by a sewerage network, there will be a septic tank. If there is, it’s your responsibility.

Septic tank emptying tends to be ignored, until the system starts to back up, or it starts to smell!  It is imperative that they are emptied at regular intervals. This enables them to be maintained and monitored, allowing for any issues to be resolved at the onset. Ignoring general maintenance can prove costly!
