Maintaining a septic tank through regular emptying and desludging helps ensure your septic tank is working to its full functionality. If you do not have your septic tank regularly emptied, at least one every couple of years, blockages, foul odours, slow running water, and sewage backup may develop, causing a number of problems. Septic tank emptying helps maintain proper function and hygienic wastewater and sewage disposal.
We recently had a number of requests for septic tank emptying in Guildford where there are a number of Klargester septic tanks in households. So, we thought we would explain what a Klargester septic tank is all about.
What is Klargester?
Klargester are a world-leader in the manufacturing and supply of premium wastewater management solutions, such as septic tanks. Having been operating for over 60 years, Klargester provide a variety of septic tank and wastewater products that are designed specially to benefit drain and sewer systems, helping them run smoothly at all times.
What is a Klargester Septic Tank?
A Klargester septic tank is just one option among a variety of septic tanks available for your property. Klargester septic tanks are one option to use for disposing of the sewage and wastewater from your property. When working correctly, a Klargester septic tank will collect the wastewater from your property, separate the solids from the liquids, and then discharge any of the leftover effluents into your drainage field or soakaway, rather than sewage treatment plants.
If you’re considering the purchase of a Klargester septic tank, it is important to be aware of the new septic tank regulations coming into force January 1st 2020. The new regulations are changing the ways wastewater is disposed of, banning the disposal of wastewater into surface water. So, be aware of your septic tank installation and whether or not it complies with the new rules so that you can avoid costly replacements or fines.
Types of Klargester Septic Tank
Klargester manufacture and install three different types of septic tanks, all of which are made to suit different properties, spaces, and individual requirements. Many people ask us how Klargester septic tanks are emptied, how frequently this needs to be done, and what work is required to keep their Klargester septic tank functioning effectively.
The Alpha Klargester Tank
The Alpha tank is one of Klargester’s most popular septic tanks available and is not only light, watertight, and particularly strong, but also goes unnoticed in your garden, creating a subtle visual impact which is desirable for many people.
How much you empty the Alpha tank depends entirely on the number of people living in your property. The Alpha Klargester septic tank is suitable for homes in which between 5-17 people reside as it is available in three different sizes and capacities, allowing you to choose the best for your home. The bigger your property and the more residents, the more frequently your septic tank will need emptying.
The Sigma Klargester Septic Tank
This tank provides one of Klargester’s easiest septic tank installations, making it a popular choice for many people. Extremely robust, light, watertight, and chemically resistant, the Sigma Klargester septic tank is ideal for managing the waste water from your property.
The reduced excavation costs associated with the Sigma Klargester septic tank is a huge selling point and makes this tank a favourite amongst Klargester customers. Just like the Alpha tank, the Sigma septic tank is able to provide for a household of 5 to a building of 47 regular occupants! So, if you live with a large number of people or you need a septic tank for your work space, the Sigma septic tank could be just right for your requirements.
Gamma Klargester Septic Tanks
Finally, the Gamma Klargester septic tank is the most popular choice for homeowners wanting a more environmentally-friendly choice. However, just because this septic tank is environmentally-friendly, does not mean that it is compromised in other features. Extremely easy to install, durable, light, watertight, and strong, the Gamma septic tanks are available in both 2800I and 4000I capacities, perfect for your space or premises, no matter how many people you accommodate.
