Septic tanks usually require an annual service, however, if you live alone or in a very small household you may be able to leave it for longer, we can help advise you on this.
A septic tank service involves fully emptying the tank and cleaning out of any sludge at the bottom which has built up over time. It is not recommended to wait until your septic tank is completely full to do this, as leaving it until this point will start to affect the efficiency of how the tank is functioning.
If you would like to set up an annual or regular service with us, we can arrange this for you. We will then send a reminder when your service is due, and will arrange with you to call at a time that is convenient.
A regular service will help avoid any of the unwanted bi-products of a full septic tank, such as bad smells and slow drainage, or a worst case scenario of overflowing.
