FAQ: Septic tank maintenance
To properly maintain, clean and empty a septic can be a complex task. However, when working with one of our specialist septic tank maintenance team, you can feel confident things are being handled by the experts.
To help you understand more about septic tank maintenance and how it will benefit your drainage system, we have rounded up some of our most frequently asked questions below…
What are maintenance requirements of a septic tank?
Septic tank maintenance includes the inspection of the tank to ensure there is no damage which could potentially cause issues. At Mantank Environmental Services we also recommend having the entire tank emptied, cleaned, and inspected on a regular basis, to ensure there are no issues with overflowing.
How often do most septic tanks need to be emptied?
We advise having the septic tank emptied once per year, at least, and this should be done by a registered waste carrier company to ensure the regulations and legislation surrounding waste removal and disposal are met.
What should I do if my septic tank is overflowing?
In circumstances where the septic tank is overflowing or blocked, it is essential to contact a professional septic tank maintenance company. Failing to deal with the waste properly could result in damage to the septic tank and the wider environment. We recommend contacting an emergency response team who specialise in hazardous and drainage waste.
When is the right time to replace my septic tank?
This will be dependent on the brand, quality, and demand on the septic tank. However, by having regular maintenance carried out on the tank this can prolong the life and ensure that it is working properly over a long period of time. If you are struggling to maintain, clean and empty your septic tank, we recommend contacting one of our expert team for advice.
