The town of Balhannah lies about 30 kilometres southeast of Adelaide. It traces its origins back to 1839, when James Turnbull Thomson established this farming community. He also ended up building the town’s first hotel. Situated on the main interstate railway line between Melbourne and Adelaide, Balhannah also incorporates two once adjacent towns i.e. Blythetown and Gilleston. Some Australians might be aware that Balhannah features one of Australia’s first fruit cold stores. Constructed in 1914, this cold store continues to be in use even today.
Most of this suburb lies along the Onkaparinga Valley Road. However, although spare, some residences also abound along other residential streets in the area. With a population of approximately 1,600 people, the area relies exclusively on septic tank systems for treating and disposing of wastewater or sewage. The locals also utilise septic pumping services from Adelaide Hills for keeping their septic tanks in prime condition.
In the absence of sewage pipeline networks, wastewater management becomes even more important. Septic tank systems help the locals of Balhannah accomplish this objective. These tanks can be very useful for property owners who prefer handling their wastewater disposal by themselves. In many cases, these individuals will need professional assistance from Balhannah’s septic tank cleaning companies. Septic tanks serve as receptacles for all the wastewater coming from the shower, toilet, kitchen and laundry. Over time, they could become clogged. This will affect their functionality. On such occasions, cleaning these tanks becomes imperative.
