A retrofitted septic tank is a conversion unit which upgrades the functions of an outdated septic tank. These will become mandatory over the next year as legislation is introduced by local and national authorities rendering old-style septic tanks illegal.
Local authorities have begun to understand how damaging certain septic tanks can be to the environment and are now suggesting that systems with higher effluent cleansing efficiency should be the standard. Clean effluent is approved to discharge into streams and waterways, whereas less efficient systems discharge more harmful substances and undigested, unfiltered waste – this is bad for the environment.
It is worth considering having a retrofitted system installed as the longevity of newer materials and components mean that your sewage treatment systems will be one less thing to worry about – aside from the annual cleaning and maintenance checks, the system will work beautifully and cause less problems than an older system.
Property owners with septic tanks discharging into ditches and streams will need to have a retrofitted system installed to improve the effluent cleansing to a legal standard.
