Septic Tank Emptying and Cleaning
Emptying septic tanks
Your local Lanes’ team carries out septic tank emptying using powerful vacuumation and tankering equipment. And, as a registered waste handler, we do it all professionally and responsibly.
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.
