Pre-cast Septic Tanks
Pre-cast concrete septic tanks bring you right up to date and solve all your effluent problems in one go. All our tanks are designed and fabricated to comply with S.R.6:1991 standard recommendations. When it is fitted, you can virtually forget it. Pre-cast concrete septic tanks work naturally.
Simple and trouble-free design combined with the well-known characteristics of pre-cast concrete makes this prefabricated unit outstanding in performance over many years of arduous service. A pre-cast tank is also impervious to the action of materials normally found in household drainage or in the soil.

Prepare a hole deep enough to accomodate a sound foundation of levelled concrete or fine gravel. Place the septic tank such that the inlet is at the correct depth to be connected to the drain excavation. Place the bottom section in the hole. Place a layer of mortar on top of the bottom section. Place top section on top and a mortar fillet all around.
Back filling can commence immediately with whatever material you require. Although the septic tank is made of best quality concrete, care should at all times be exercised to prevent accidental damage arising from blows from boulders with any undue force such as to cause damage.
Septic systems rely on soil to absorb, treat and disperse wastewater effluent. If effluent flows by gravity from the septic tank to the absorption area, the septic system typically relies on a distribution box located between the septic tank and the soil absorption area. The distribution box uniformly delivers wastewater to a series of trenches cut in the soil. Without this even distribution, the soil absorption field will be unevenly loaded. When uneven loading occurs, portions of the trenches can become overloaded which can eventually cause the entire septic system to fail, resulting in untreated wastewater ponding on the soil surface. Distribution boxes are typically made of plastic or concrete, both of which we stock, and contain on inlet pipe from the septic tank and outlet pipes that lead to soil absorption field trenches.
Pre-cast concrete septic tanks can be delivered direct to your site or collected from our factory at Tuam, Co Galway. Sections can be handled by a JCB or any such equipment.
