Ri-Industries have available the additional items
that are required to be installed with your septic

To keep your Ri Septic Tank as ‘fresh as
a daisy’, here are some basic tips:
- for an average family of 4-6 people your septic
tank may have to be de-sludged (pumped out)
approximately every 4 years as required by regulations.
- septic tanks do not like material that will
not break down e.g. plastic bags, tampons, disposable
nappies, condoms, etc. Use biodegradable products
- The bacterial action of your Ri septic tank
can be severely inhibited if excessive amounts
of disinfectants or old medicine make their
way into the tank. Only use products approved
for use in septic systems.
- Pooling of effluent near your seepage trench
will give you a warning that the system may
be clogging up. When this happens contact your
local liquid waste disposal contractor to empty
the septic system and make it safe to use again.
