Septic Tanks

We supply a range of septic tanks for Klargester, the industry’s leading manaufacturer. Many basic septic tanks only partially treat sewage and discharge effluent of a low quality, the use of which is prohibited by many authorities in the UK and Ireland.

There is a range of more advanced alternatives such as the Klargester SuperSeptic which produces a much better effluent quality. We also offer a range of sewage treatment plants (details available on 'Treatment Plants' page).

Septic tanks can typically be installed (subject to prior consent) in instances whereby:

  • Soil is of suitable porosity.
  • Installation complies with Building Regulations (Approved Document H).
  • The installation will not contaminate any ditch, stream or other watercourse.

 

Products available:
