DO YOU GET SMELLS FROM SEPTIC TANKS?

In an ideal world with some anaerobic biological action, a good crust layer, regular emptying and adequately vented drainage pipe work, a sectic tank should not smell.

From our experience and with lots of variables is in not uncommon to get the occasional unpleasant odour.

If your tank is functioning correctly but you are having a problem with smells then we can fit airtight access covers which may resolve the issue.

If you are purchasing a property with a septic tank then check on its location. If it is directly under the outside patio then you may have some unpleasant surprises on that hot summer's day!
