Situated on the Bremer River, Callington lies on the eastern slopes of the Adelaide Hills. It lies adjacent to the South Eastern Freeway and the Adelaide-Wolseley railway line. Despite this, no trains have stopped at this small town for many years. The town derives its name from the copper mining town Callington in Cornwall, UK. In 1848, during a survey, John Kiernan noticed copper in the rocks. Initially, the miners did not mine much copper. However, by 1860-61, the mining of 250 – 300 tons of copper each month began taking place. Callington thus became the centre for smelting the mined copper. In 1870, the Bremer Mine fell into liquidation because of low copper prices.
With a population of just over 600 people, Callington remains sparsely populated. As such, it does not even have any sewer connections like many bigger towns in the region. This necessitates the use of septic tank systems for managing sewage and wastewater. It also means that Callington locals rely extensively on septic tank pumping services for keeping these systems functional.
Septic tanks act as receptacles for all the wastewater produced in the house. Inside these tanks, heavier solids will settle at the bottom. Here, they will undergo bacterial digestion. This activity reduces the quantity of solids in the tank. It also changes the composition of the solid to sludge. Materials like oil and grease will float on the surface and form a crust over the liquid. Similarly, the effluent will flow from the tank to the drain field, where it will undergo further natural treatment and purification. The steady accumulation of sludge in the tank necessitates emptying the tank every three to five years. Thus, Callington residents often hire septic tank pump out providers for cleaning these systems.

Not many people think of septic tanks each day – even if they happen to use them. Thus, they never even consider the manner in which these systems function. They only notice the septic tank when something goes wrong. This issue invariably leads Callington locals to hire septic tank cleaning companies for resolving the matter. Septic tanks typically require repair and maintenance because people:
- Put grease into their septic systems
- Do not use septic-friendly cleaning agents that use enzymes in their homes
- Discard old medications into their septic systems
- Fail to keep deep and large-rooted plants and trees away from the septic system and,
- Do not maintain or look after their septic tanks regularly
