Septic Tank Cleaning, Pumping & Maintenance

The septic is a natural treatment system that makes use of the bacteria present in wastes. Even in the best conditions ‘septic’s’ will need to be pumped out due to the buildup of solids. What you put down your drains and toilets has a lot to do with how well your pump-out system performs.

Sewage management systems do not manage well to shock loads. In the case of a pump out system, e.g, 3 or 4washing loads completed in quick sequence will flood the chambers. Long showers, leaking toilets and dripping taps can all lead to large pump out bills and possible overflows from the system.

Clients are responsible for:

  • Ensuring the tank does not leak
  • Getting the system fixed quickly if it does leak
  • Maintaining the system
  • Regular Inspections
  • ‘Desludging’ the tank when it is full
  • Complying with your local council requirements for installation, maintenance service and operation and paying fees for inspections and maintenance.
