Septic Tank Emptying

Septic Tanks range in size shape, design, age and condition from Victorian brick chambers through to modern plastic or fibreglass self-contained units. All tanks, regardless of age or pedigree require regular emptying to ensure they continue to work as they were originally designed. Failure to do so can result in the tank blocking and pollution hazards.

When to empty?

All tanks require emptying at some stage and the longer period left between desludging will increase the likelihood of a problem occurring. In order that your septic tank/sewage treatment plant works efficiently it is recommended that your tank is emptied annually to reduce the risk of pollution, drain blockages, damage to the tank and to prolong the life of your filter chamber or soak-away.


*The Environment Agency recommend annual tank emptying

Construction Sites

Site toilet tanks require regular, often weekly, empties to ensure the welfare facilities remain functional and there is no risk of spillage or blockages. A tank service not only includes the emptying of the tank but also a check on the toilets to ensure everything is flowing in the right direction. Any problems found will be reported to site management. Where possible any blockages to the tank or toilets will be dealt with and cleared as part of the tank’s service.
Our personnel are equipped with full Personal Protective Equipment to ensure both their safety and compliance with your site entry and work rules.
Site toilet tanks are available for hire
