Septic Tank CleaningIt’s not just the emptying of your septic tank that’s required on a regular basis. Septic tank cleaning is a crucial ingredient to maintaining an efficient functioning level for your system.

How often should I clean my septic tank?

The recommended cleaning schedule for your septic tank will depend on the type of waste it contains. It’s common for your septic tank to build-up a top layer of fats, oils and greases which crusts and can block or clog your soakaway.

  • The more you ask your septic tank to handle, the emptying and cleaning schedule will become more frequent.
  • If you increase the level of solids in your waste, you’ll need to empty and clean your septic tank more often.
  • Always purchase your septic tank from a reputable company in the Warrington – Cheshire area, with a warranty that you’re comfortable with.
