Our Septic Tanks Eastbourne Services

We offer all services related to septic tanks in Eastbourne. Take a look below at our core services:

Septic Tank Emptying in Eastbourne

You should be aiming to empty your septic tank regularly, usually at least once a year. However, the size and usage of your septic tank may affect how many times per year your tank will need emptying. For example, a household with one or two residents would not necessarily require as much emptying as a household that holds a family of five or more. As such, it is always best to consult with a professional drainage service as to how many times a year you should empty your septic tank.

Our septic tank emptying service is designed to be fast and non-invasive. We empty both commercial and domestic septic tanks in Eastbourne and offer expert advice where necessary.  

Some common signs that your septic tank needs emptying might include:

  • Appliances and fixtures such as toilets and washing machines are draining slowly
  • There is pooling water around the tank and drain field
  • Sewage is backing up into your property
  • You have not had your septic tank emptied in over a year

Get in touch with our team if you notice any of the above is happening in or around your property.

Septic Tank Installations in Eastbourne

The cost of installing a septic tank in Eastbourne depends on a few factors, namely:

  • the size of the tank itself
  • the ground conditions where it’s being installed
  • the access to the site
  • the size of the drainage field required to suit the tank

The price for carrying out the provision and installation of a new septic tank in Eastbourne can cost between £4,000 to £7,000 depending on the above factors (these prices also include labour costs). Other price considerations may include the availability of access as well as your current ground conditions.

What is the difference between a septic tank and a treatment plant?

A septic tank separates solids and lets wastewater discharge to ground. A treatment plant treats the sewage to a level that is acceptable by the Environment Agency to be discharged to surface water. Treatment plants will have some kind of mechanical parts in order to safely perform this treatment, which means they typically require an electrical supply.

Do I need a septic tank or a treatment plant?

If you want to discharge to ground, it can be a septic tank or a treatment plant. A drainage field serving a treatment plant is likely to have a longer lifespan than a drainage field serving a septic tank due to the quality of the final effluent.

If you want to discharge to surface water it must be a treatment plant, for example, a ditch, stream etc.

What happens if my septic tank doesn’t comply?

Enforcement notices will be issued by the Environment Agency which can result in fines up to £150,000.
