Installing a Septic Tank Bristol


Visitors: 257

If you’ve taken the plunge and moved away from the hustle and bustle of city life and opted for the tranquillity and serenity of the countryside, it is likely that you’ll be enjoying the wonderful views of nature. But as idyllic as country living is, it can have its downfalls and one of these is the lack of main sewage works. In these instances it is important to have a septic tank Bristol installed and it is a task which can be carried out yourself, if you know what you’re doing.

Before any excavation work can be carried out on your land for the installation of a septic tank, you will be required to visit your local city hall to find out their rules and regulations on the size of tanks that are acceptable and the areas in which they can/cannot be installed. Following this, you’ll then need to submit planning permission. If this all gets the go ahead, the excavation work can begin.
The installation of a septic tank Bristol should be conducted in three parts to ensure that once it is all up and running, there are no issues and everything goes smoothly.

The first step is to excavate a hole which is big and wide enough to hold the tank, along with trenches running from the house to the tank and from the tank to the drainage field for the pipes to reside in. This stage of the installation will run more smoothly if you’re working to professional plans – and it is worth noting that the pipes should run slightly downhill to the tank.

Once the area has been prepared for the pipes and tank, you can place the septic tank in the hole and connect it to the pipe work. It is important at this stage that you check for any leakages. If everything has connected fine and there are no leaks, it is time for the final stage.

This is perhaps the easiest stage of the whole process. The filling in of the holes created – although it is important that at this stage, you clearly mark out the tanks vents and drain covers as this will make it easier to service the tank when required.

Installing a septic tank Bristol isn’t an easy DIY task to carry out, but if you live in an area where there isn’t a main sewage line, it’s definitely an important task to undertake. To get the job done without any fuss, why not give a specialist firm a call; they will be able to carry out all stages of the installation for you, once you’ve received planning permission.
