What are common septic tank issues?
- Antibacterial cleaners causing septic tank bacteria to cease breaking down solid waste.
- Residents flushing items which should be disposed of in other ways, including kitchen roll, food items and even coffee grounds – causing blockages.
- Tree roots growing into the system and causing blockages, damage and leaks. Septic tanks should always be installed at least 30 metres from nearby trees.
