How often do septic tanks need emptying?

Cesspits and Septic Tanks usually require emptying at least once a year. The frequency can depend on the size, design model of the tank. It can also be determined by the number of people who occupy/use the property/properties which the septic tank serves.

We provide septic tank emptying for the following:

  • Single septic tanks
  • Multi-chamber septic tanks
  • Septic tanks for domestic properties
  • Septic tanks for schools
  • Septic tanks for hotels, pubs and restaurants
  • Septic tanks for leisure amenities
  • Septic tanks for industrial sites

What happens when septic tanks are not emptied often enough?

Solid waste accumulates at the bottom of the tank over time, potentially causing blockage and smells if the tank is not maintained often enough. Attention must be paid to the piping system as pooling around the septic tank is often a sign that a clogged piping system is forcing liquid to the surface.

Failure to maintain your septic tank on a regular basis can reduce its efficiency. If more particles enter the drainfield and the soak-away becomes clogged, this could lead to expensive soakaway replacement. An overflowing or malfunctioning tank can also cause health and environmental risks.

If your property uses a septic tank, we advise that you read the 2015 legislation relating to discharge from septic tanks to ensure that you meet your responsibilities with full compliance.

How can I tell if a septic tank needs emptying?

Below are 5 common signs that your septic tank requires maintenance:

  • Foul smells in the area near the septic tank
  • Surface water pooling within the drain field of your septic tank
  • Slow-draining sinks and toilets that cannot be rectified by unblocking the drain in question
  • Unusually abundant plant growth in the area near the tank
  • Overflow of sludge or scum on the water, for systems where sewage flows into water
