Our Main Septic Tank Services in West Sussex
We offer all septic tank services for commercial and domestic properties across West Sussex. This includes the following:
Septic Tank Emptying
Septic tank emptying is a routine service that involves emptying your septic tank before it becomes full and at risk of overflowing onto your land. The process is usually swift and non-invasive because septic tanks are positioned 30m (max) away from the property. It’s recommended that you have your septic tank emptied once a year, but this may be required more often depending on the number of people in your home. Septic tank emptying is a laborious job that should only be undertaken by qualified drainage engineers. Do not attempt to empty your septic tank yourself.
Common signs your septic tank may require emptying include:
- Your appliances (including toilets, showers and washing machines) are draining slowly
- You notice pooling water around the tank and drain field
- Bad smells emanating from your septic tank
- Sewer has spilled over onto your land
- You have not had your septic tank emptied in over a year
Septic Tank Servicing in West Sussex
All septic tanks in West Sussex require routine maintenance and servicing at some point. This ensures that your septic tank is working correctly and continues to adhere to the General Binding Rules. However, you may notice early signs that your septic tank is in need of a service, which may include some of the points mentioned earlier (overflow, bad smells, leaks etc).
Some of the core services we offer with routine septic tank servicing includes:
- Septic tank pumping
- Water jetting to clean and clear the tank
- Employing bacterial additives
- Installing an effluent filter (if yours is not working properly)
Septic Tank Installations in West Sussex
Whether you have recently bought a septic tank and need someone to install it, or you need to buy a new septic tank as well as installation, BlockBusters can help. We help customers across West Sussex choose septic tanks that are appropriate for their property. Installing a septic tank can be completed in as little as a day and allows safe and efficient water treatment for your property.
Before we install your new septic tank, we will first need to assess:

- The ground conditions where it’s being installed
- The access to the site
- The size of the drainage field required to suit the tank
How much your septic tank installation will cost depends on a few things, namely the price of the actual tank and the labour costs. In most cases, the average price for septic tank installation in West Sussex is in the region of £4,000 to £7,000.
What happens if my septic tank doesn’t comply?
