Your septic tank

When we call to pump out your tank we ask that manhole covers are easily

released and not hidden under decking/plant pots/gravel. Please cut back

undergrowth a metre clear of the manhole cover to allow the driver to work

safely. You may not want to see the septic tank, but we do need to find them!

 

Please also advise us of any change to your drive by tarmacing or block paving.

 

If you are new to septic tanks we can send you a leaflet which tells you about things you can and can't do. Please fill in our contact form with your details and we will send one in the post to you.

 

We recommend that septic tanks are emptied annually, every two years maximum, depending on circumstance. This should be sufficient if your soakaway is working efficiently. If there’s more

than one property to a tank, you may find it needs pumping out two or three times a year.
