A septic tank provides a solution to sewage disposal needs for many homes where main drains and sewage pipes are not accessible. Older properties and those in rural areas are less likely to be connected to a main drains system, therefore the sewage from your home will flow directly into a septic tank, cesspit or sewage treatment plant that is installed outside your property.

2020 Septic Tank Regulations:
In 2015 the government introduced new rules for sewage treatment systems. The rules are designed to reduce the level of pollution from sewage and to improve the quality of water that flows into local watercourses such as a river or stream. If your septic tank does not meet the standards of the new regulations, you may be fined up to £250k.
