Septic Tank Emptying

We always respond quickly to your call.

When you need emergency septic tank emptying or if your septic tank is full, call Wrekin Drain Service as soon as possible to arrange for your sewage tank to be emptied. Emptying your septic tank will help prevent the risk of a spill into the local environment, damage to your drain field, soakaway or other filtering method and upset caused from sewage backing up into your property.

As part of your routine maintenance for your septic system, you should carry out septic tank emptying and have the solids and sludge removed from your sewage tank at frequent intervals. This is waste that is not decomposed by aerobic digestion and if allowed to build up, will eventually cause your sewage treatment system to fail.

Wrekin Drain Services operate a 7.5 tonne tanker which we use for emptying septic tanks and cesspits where you have limited access. If your driveway is narrow or restricted in any way, no problem! As long as we can get within 20m of the pit, with our mini tanker it’s another JWD. (job well done)

How often to empty your septic tank?

You should have your septic tank emptied frequently depending upon the level of use. As a general rule of thumb our customers arrange their septic tank emptying approximately every six months. This will vary depending on a number of factors, which include the size of the sewage tank and the number of people living in your property.

Excessive water entering the septic tank from leaky taps or cisterns can cause problems and torrential rain could overload your drainage field and stop your septic tank from discharging. We understand your duty of care and the need to prevent a spill from your sewage tank and will always respond quickly to your call.
