Cleaning septic tanks

Often our customers ask us to perform a thorough septic tank clean after we have emptied it. Using high pressured water jet vacs, we make short work of cleaning all the lines into the tank, along with checking and clearing the soakaway, safely and efficiently. In exceptional circumstances, we are qualified to clean larger tanks via man-entry.

Expertise and peace of mind

With our reputation, years of experience and status as a registered waste handler, you can be confident that we are knowledgeable and reliable. Naturally, any detritus we remove from septic tank emptying or cleaning is always taken to a reputable registered waste disposal site. And we take care of all the required paperwork, so you don’t have to. All you need to do is be aware of your responsibilities and arrange service appointments accordingly. We recommend annual emptying at least. Of course, if you have a service agreement with us, we will even organise this for you.

Be aware of the latest regulations

If your property has a septic tank, you will need to be aware of new rules that came into full effect in 2020 prohibiting septic tanks from discharging directly into a watercourse, applying to both new and existing systems. If you fail to adhere to the rules, you could be hit with a fine of up to £100,000.

For further guidance, check out our best practice guide, or speak to Lanes to see how we can help you ensure full compliance with the latest regulations.
