FAQ: Septic Tank Pumping
Septic tank pumping and emptying services are highly sought-after, with many of our clients looking for a reliable team to work with on an ongoing basis for their septic tank emptying and maintenance requirements.
Prior to working with our clients, we often receive similar queries and questions about our tank cleaning service, we have rounded these up below to help you with your septic tank pumping enquiry:
How often should septic tank be pumped?
This depends on several factors including usage and how many people are using the septic tank. However, as general guidance we advise our clients their septic tank should be emptied once every three to five years.
What are the signs that your septic tank is full?
Common signs that a septic tank needs to be emptied include toilets or washing machines becoming sluggish and flow to drain, issues with flushing. However, a more common sign is a visible overflow surrounding the surface outside the septic tank.
Can you pump a septic tank yourself?
No, due to the type of waste it is a legal requirement that septic tanks are emptied by a registered waste carrier. Failing to work with a professional team could result in environmental issues which affect those in the surrounding areas.
What to do after a septic tank is pumped?
We advise our clients to carry our regular maintenance once a septic tank has been emptied. Maintenance can include cleaning, emptying sludge and ensuring the septic tank is operating properly. We provide ongoing maintenance services to commercial clients throughout the UK, tailoring their package to suit their individual requirements.
How much does it cost to pump a septic tank?
The cost of pumping a septic tank will vary depending on size, location, and the state of the tank. Our team provide a full assessment service where we provide a breakdown of costs for septic tank emptying and ongoing maintenance services.
