When deciding to build a new home in the United Kingdom, many of us choose to do within the city or town limits, so that we can take advantage of facilities like running water, electricity and sewage solutions. However, others prefer to live outside these limits and there is a lot to be said about living in the countryside where it is much quieter and the air is much cleaner. There are downsides to living in the country and one of them is the treatment of our sewage waste.
You can’t tap into the sewage system as there is none and so you must make your own plans. There is a 24 hour waste management in Bristol who would be more than happy to come out to your property and make a no-obligation assessment regarding your waste management system. They can install septic tanks for you that will manage your toilet and shower, sink and bath waste and this system will be so efficient that you may only need to get it emptied every 5 years or so. There are advantages to installing a septic tank and here are some of them.
- It is more environmentally friendly because it doesn’t run through a sewage system that is likely to leak raw sewage into the water table. A septic tank is contained and uses a natural filtration system that is kinder to the environment.
- They are incredibly low maintenance and when installed correctly, you may only need to have it emptied every 5 years or so.
Septic tanks allow us to live wherever we want and they provide us with a more environmental way to dispose of our waste responsibly.
