Laid out in 1849 by Benjamin Gray, this small town lies in the Adelaide Hills of South Australia. It derives its name from Gray’s native town in Sussex. Less than 50 years after its emergence, Littlehampton had transformed into a busy industrial town. It featured an assortment of factories that produced bricks, jams, sauces, bacon, wattle extract etc. It also featured a brewery and a sawmill.
Littlehampton has a population of approximately 3,000 people. Despite this, the town continues to come under the classification of an unsewered development in South Australia. This effectively means that the town has no access to the extensive network of sewage pipelines that larger Australian towns and cities typically feature. As a result, the locals have installed septic systems on their properties for treating and disposing of their sewage. But, septic systems require regular cleaning. Because of this, the residents of Littlehampton rely on professionals for obtaining quality septic tank pumping services.

When wastewater enters a septic tank, the heavier solids will sink to the bottom. Here, they will undergo bacterial digestion. Over time, this solid matter will turn into sludge. Waste materials such as grease and oil will float to the surface, thereby forming a crust over the liquid. The remaining effluent will flow from the tank into the drain field. Here, it will soak into the soil and undergo further natural treatment. But, the sludge in the tank will continue to build up, necessitating a thorough cleaning. To accomplish this, Littlehampton residents perform regular septic tank pump outs with professional help.
Ideally, septic tanks require cleaning every three to five years. But, heavy use could necessitate cleaning at more frequent intervals. Therefore, Littlehampton residents will need to hire septic tank pumping service providers more frequently if they:
- Use excessive amounts of water each day
- Have not inspected their septic tank regularly
- Have not cleaned their septic tank in the last few years
- Hear the sound of the septic alarm system
- Use strong liquid cleaners in their homes, which negates or impedes the bacterial activity in the tank
- Wash their laundry several times a week and,
- Face problems such as backed up toilets and sinks
