The EPA recommends to de-sludge a septic tank at least once a year but this varies with the system’s capacity and use. You must de-sludge the septic tank if scum is present in the second chamber or if the sludge comes up to about 400mm from the bottom of the tank. A minimum of 75mm of sludge should remain in the tank to assist in the reseeding of the new sludge. Regular maintenance is required to ensure that the septic tank operates effectively and that solids do not enter the percolation area and clog the distribution pipe work. The Waste Collection Permit Regulations came into force in 2001. Anybody, other than a local authority, who collects waste for the purposes of profit or reward, is required by law to hold a Waste Collection Permit. The WCP must specify the waste type, corresponding EWC code (Septic Tank Waste = 200304) and be disposed of at a licenced waste water treatment plant.
