How often should a septic tank be emptied?

It can be easy to forget that your septic tank needs to be emptied on a regular basis.

Septic tanks are usually buried below ground which makes them work without you noticing. The frequency that a septic tank will need to be emptied depends on how much it gets used.

On average, a septic tank should be emptied every 6 months.

A septic system is generally low maintenance, but once a problem occurs it may be too late for an easy solution. However, a septic disposal system can pose a significant environmental risk if it is not correctly cleaned out.

Leaving your septic tank to overflow can result in costly repairs or replacement. It is important to ensure that your septic tank is only used to dispose of human waste.

If additional materials empty the tank such as food waste, nappies or wet wipes, your system may experience a blockage. If your tank becomes blocked due to the wrong waste materials being flushed down the toilet, you will need to arrange for a specialist to clear the blockage.

We can also provide pumping and unblocking services for blocked systems.

What is the difference between a wastewater tank and a septic tank?

Septic tanks act as a sewage system for properties which do not have access to the mains sewers. Therefore you will commonly find tanks installed beside domestic properties in remote rural areas.

A waste tank, also called an effluent tank, is located close to welfare units providing toilet facilities. When there is no direct access to a sewage line, a waste tank is commonly used.
