Annual repair and maintenance
Your septic tank must be well maintained to avoid any problems. Even though the volume of solid waste is reduced significantly using a sewage treatment plant, the waste will still need to be removed via a tanker. Master Blaster NI Limited recommends that this be undertaken annually, and more frequently with larger systems.
You should try to avoid allowing certain substances or items entering the sewage treatment plant. The substances include bleach, heavy-duty cleaners, grease, petrol and non-degradable products such as paper or sanitary items.
The problems you might experience
If your sewage treatment plant has been affected by lack of maintenance, Master Blaster NI Limited offers professional septic tank repairs and maintenance across Bangor, Belfast, and Northern Ireland. Typical septic tank or sewage treatment plant problems include:
- Blockages within septic tanks causing flooding within the system, be it involving the inlet pipe (from the property to the tank) or the outlet or dip pipe (from the septic tank to the soakaway system)
- Damage from nearby tree roots affecting the structure of the septic tank.
- Overhead vehicular movement causing a risk to the structure of the septic tank and the surrounding pipework.
Why you need maintenance and repair
Excess wastewater entering the tank can result in the waste not having enough time to break down and disperse into the surrounding ground. This creates a backlog within the septic tank and possible flooding or land pollution. Without proper septic tank repair and maintenance, a build-up of sludge can occur. This effectively prevents any bacteria from becoming established within the septic tank, therefore reducing the rate at which the waste is broken down.
Incorrectly installed septic tanks result in the waste not being able to soak away or the sewage being short-circuited. This can cause detrimental blockages. Collapsed baffles can occur in any floating debris being transferred into the soakaway system.
We had repair work done to our septic tank recently by MasterBlaster. We are very happy with the timely response to our enquiry and for the efficient and excellent service. They always keep you updated on the progress of the work to be carried out. Very friendly and helpful staff. Would highly recommend.
Having recently used Master Blaster’s services I would highly recommend them, they carried out a septic tank survey on a property I’m purchasing. The inspection was carried out very promptly for me and it was thorough and so professional. The report results were prepared within two days which was extremely helpful .
Pauline and Philip were immensely helpful with any queries I had and they were so friendly.
