How to: Septic tank cleaning and emptying
As specialists in tank cleaning and waste disposal, we are often asked for our top tips on how to empty and clean septic tanks easily. Although we recommend a professional carries out the work, there are a few steps you can take maintain your own septic tank.
- Use high pressure water jets
The best method of cleaning a septic tank is to use high pressure water jetting, as this can properly clean the tanks surface area and ensure any sewage has been removed properly.
- Dispose of the sewage according to environmental regulations
Any waste must be disposed of according to environmental regulations, failing to do so can have negative effects on the environment and cause issues for those within the local area. Disposing of waste against the proper legislation can also result in heavy fines.
- Ensure the tank is free from leaks
Most commonly, we are called out to leaking or overflowing septic tanks, however by regularly checking the tank for any potential leaks or blockages is an essential part of ongoing maintenance.
- Invest in an expert septic tank cleaning team
Septic tank cleaning and emptying isn’t a simple task and so, requires a specialist knowledge to prevent contamination and damage to the wider environment. Although it is possible to empty septic tanks with minimal knowledge, this could lead to incidents which cause environmental problems.
Instead, working with a knowledgeable team who are able to empty, clean and dispose of the septic tank contents easily is much simpler and safer. A reliable team will be able to regularly carry out maintenance and cleaning on the tank too, which is essential in terms of health and safety and preventing leaking and flooding issues.
