Septic Tank Emptying

Domestic septic tanks

We can empty your domestic septic tank

If your house is not on the main drains, usually it will be on a septic tank system. A septic tank is designed to allow the sludge from waste to separate from the liquid. It begins the process by the solids settling to the bottom by gravity and the clean water getting filtered through a soakaway system, meaning the sludge remains in the tank. This is the part that requires emptying and disposing of as it is mixed with the detergents that can be harmful to your septic tank. Having your septic tank emptied regularly will remove these and keep it in a good working condition.  It is recommended by the Government binding rules that septic tanks should be emptied annually but his does depend on the size of tank and how many people are living in the house that the tank is connected to.

Water facility to recharge bowsers, site IBC water tanks

We have the facility to refill water tanks, bowsers and site IBC’s etc. Supplying freshwater for all these tanks as and when the sites require. (Please note- this is not suitable for drinking purposes)

Mobile toilets

We can empty and recharge your mobile toilets

We provide an empty and recharge service for all types of mobile toilets. We can empty these on a one-off basis usually for building projects or on a larger scale usually for festivals and events.

Builders effluent tanks

A builder’s effluent tank is normally situated on a construction site for temporary use while the site is being worked on. We can offer a one off empty or a scheduled booking from daily, weekly or monthly. This normally depends on the size of the site and how many are working there too.

Treatment plants

Treatment plants are usually some sort of mechanical system that requires servicing and desludging so that they can operate within the regulations of the Environmental Agency.


Most people believe that treatment plants do not need emptying and desludging, unfortunately this is not the case as the daily detergents we use in a household can be harmful and kill bacteria, these ideally need removing on an annually basis. The final effluent of a treatment plant can be discharged into an open water course or stream.

Pump chambers

Pump chambers have a mechanical pump and usually a high-level alarm inside. It is designed to disperse the liquid when a site has a high level of water. This can sometimes be storm water or foul water. If the level in the pump chamber rises to a certain height, the pump activates and pumps the liquid until it goes back down to a level that is suitable. This will then switch the pump off, meaning the liquor has been pumped away to a suitable outfall.  Storm water pump chambers need regular pump out and desludging, usually as a build-up of debris and stones/rubble gather at the bottom, this can lead to the pumps burning out.  Foul pump chambers need pumping out and desludging on a regular basis due to fats and grease that build around the float switches and the sides of the chambers. This will also cause the pumps to overhead and burn out.

Large cess pools

We can completely empty your cess pool

Cess pools are a completely sealed tank with no soakaway. Everything produced must be tankered away by road. These can be very costly and ideally only want to be installed as a last resort. These require emptying regularly. This is due to it not having any overflow option. Again, depending on the size of your system and how many people are living in the house does depend on how regularly it needs emptying.

Welfare cabins

A welfare cabin is a portable space that is put into a location that is lacking in mains water, waste and electricity services. It normally is split into different spaces usually a toilet, office space and canteen.  They are ideally used for new sites to get them set up. These cabins usually require water and waste to be removed.

Grease Traps

Also known as grease interceptor. Typically found in restaurants/pubs or catering outlets. These are designed to cut off most greases and solids before they reach a wastewater disposal system.  When larger amounts of oil/grease are involved they can be too much for the drainage system. Resulting in discharge of grease into the drainage field causing blocked up drains so regularly require an empty.

We also offer a full wash down facility

Areas We Cover

We operate within these areas so the lead time for a service from Extraction Service is kept short.
