Septic Tank Emptying

Emptying your septic tank will help prevent the risk of a spill into the local environment, damage to your drain field, soak-away or other filtering method such as a reed bed and the devastation and upset caused from sewage backing up into your property.

As part of your routine maintenance for your septic system, you should carry out septic tank emptying and have the solids and sludge removed from your sewage tank at frequent intervals. This is waste that is not decomposed by aerobic digestion and if allowed to build up, will eventually cause your sewage treatment system to fail.

Septic Tank Maintenance

Your septic tank is an essential part of your sewage system. If you look after your septic tank, your sewage treatment system should last for many years, however, there are a number of factors that might contribute to reducing the lifetime of your septic system.

Too much oil and fat can cause blockages as they do not easily degrade or decompose. These can be removed easily by our operative, providing they have not entered your drainage field.

Flushing waste items that do not decompose include cigarette ends, cotton buds, tampons, rubber or small plastic items will cause your tank to fill quickly. All of these can be removed quickly during your septic tank service.

Disposing of food waste into your septic tank can overload your system and cause failure. Once again, these items can be removed by our operative when they empty your septic tank.

Some chemicals can cause damage to the natural balance of the system and its aerobic digestion by killing the good bacteria. These include high levels of bleach, pesticides and herbicides, caustic soda and high levels of salt. You should take care not to flush such chemicals into your septic tank.

How often to empty your septic tank

You should have your septic tank emptied frequently depending upon the level of use. As a general rule of thumb, our customers arrange their septic tank emptying approximately every 6 months.

This will vary depending on a number of factors, which include the size of the sewage tank, the number of people living in your property and special occasions where you have a number of guests.

Excessive water entering the septic tank from leaky taps or cisterns can cause problems and torrential rain could overload your drainage field and stop your septic tank from discharging.

We understand your duty of care and the need to prevent a spill from your sewage tank and will always respond quickly to your call.
