Septic Tank Installation in Brockenhurst

You know what they say: the only thing worse than looking at your septic tank is not having one. In fact, it's crucial to have a proper system installed and maintained if you want to keep your family safe from harmful bacteria (and save yourself from potentially expensive repairs).

Fortunately for us all, there are plenty of options out there that make adding a septic tank to your home easier than ever before. These days, people are installing them in their backyards more and more frequently because they're easy to find, affordable, and easy to maintain!

Septic Tank Installation in Brockenhurst

What size septic tank do I need?

You will want to determine the size of your septic tank based on several factors, including:

  • The number of people in your household.

  • The number of bathrooms in the home.

  • How much water is used in each bathroom every day and how often each is used (e.g., a bathtub uses more water than a sink)?

How to install a septic tank

  • Dig a hole near the house.

  • Place the septic tank in the hole and level it with sandbags or rocks if necessary.

  • Bolt down your tank to prevent it from moving around once you're finished filling it with water, which could cause cracks in the concrete or weaken its integrity altogether.

  • Cover your septic tank with soil after you've installed it; this will protect the concrete from freezing temperatures during winter months, as well as other types of damage caused by exposure to weather elements over time (such as sun damage). You should also consider having someone install a lid or cover on top of your septic system so that curious children won't get into trouble when they come across one while playing outside!

  • Fill up your new septic tank using running water from somewhere near where you live - we recommend using a hose connected directly to to an outlet inside one's house because this way, both ends are going through pipes that have been tested before, so there are no chance something will leak out during installation processes later on down the road when things get busy here at home.

Do you need planning permission for a septic tank?

You may be wondering if you need planning permission to install a septic tank. The answer is yes, and it's something that will have to be done before your tank can be installed.

The reason for this is that the installation of a septic tank can have an effect on the environment, so you will need to obtain approval from your local council before starting work on your project. You'll also have to pay for this approval - although it usually costs less than £100 per application - doing so is absolutely vital if you don't want fines or even criminal charges brought against yourself or anyone else involved in the project later on down the line!

It's worth noting that simply having planning permission doesn't mean anything when it comes to protecting ground water quality and ensuring that harmful bacteria isn't released into nearby rivers and streams; what matters most are any restrictions placed upon where waste materials may come from (soil type) and how many homes can use one system at once (capacities).

How much does a septic tank cost?

The cost of a new septic tank repair will depend on your personal requirements and the type of system that you choose. For example, if you want more space in the tank itself or want additional features like an alarm system or access hatch, then these costs will need to be added on. If you require a concrete septic tank instead of plastic, this will increase your overall bill as well.

The average price for installing a basic 1000-gallon concrete septic tank is around £1,700 to £2,200 depending on various factors, including location and material used. And you must forget that if you need planning permission to install it and have to pay for that, then this will cost extra.

Factors that will affect the cost are:

  • The size of your property (a larger property will require more space for a septic system) and how many bathrooms you have.

  • What kind of soil do you have? If there are no rocks within 10 feet (3 m), then chances are good that this will work just fine—but if there are rocks closer than that distance, then consider having concrete poured around each pipe leading outside so people don't accidentally hit them while walking around outside.

  • The existing conditions at your site (if there's any damage or issues with the existing soil)

  • Your preference for different types of equipment
