Ok so 'septic tanks vs. sewage treatment plants' might not be much of a battle worth watching, but if you have a property with an off mains drainage system - or are thinking of buying one - it's worth knowing the difference.
This is all the more important bearing in mind the change in legislation to do with septic tanks which takes effect in 2020. This will make certain types of drainage systems involving septic tanks no longer legal. So knowing whether you have a septic tank or a sewage treatment plant lurking underground at your property could save you a whole lot of trouble and possibly a weighty fine.
If you're buying a property, it's really important too - buy a house without knowing whether it has a septic tank or a sewage treatment plant at your peril, as you could find yourself on the hook for a big fat bill to upgrade your system in 2020.
