What is a septic tank?
A septic tank is an underground system that receives and partially treats raw wastewater from domestic or commercial properties not connected to municipal sewers. They are typically the most simple and most economical form of onsite wastewater treatment.
With nominal capacities from 3,000 up to 84,000 litres, our Rewatec septic tanks (formerly Conder septic tanks) are ideal for virtually any application. Quick to install, simple to use, and easy to maintain, these durable solutions give you a discreet and reliable performance you can trust.
Our septic tanks are also CE and UKCA marked having been fully tested and certified to EN12566-1.

How do our septic tanks work?
Wastewater from the property runs into a main drainage pipe that flows into the septic tank. The septic tank’s job is simple: it allows wastewater to separate into three layers.
In the top layer, oils, greases, and fats float to the surface and form scum. In the bottom layer, solids settle on the bottom of the tank and form sludge. Both scum and sludge require removal by a licenced waste carrier as and when required.
Partially clarified liquids accumulate between the layers of scum and sludge and exit the septic tank through a pipe. An integrated effluent filter - standard in all 3,000-10,000 litre polyethylene Rewatec septic tanks, capture suspended solids that could clog system components further downstream.
