Septic Tanks need to be emptied and maintained on a regular basis

How often should my septic tank be emptied?

Septic tanks can build up sludge which settles at the bottom of the tank which can cause issues, so needs to be removed regularly.

If a septic tank becomes too full this can cause problems such as the plumbing and appliances within your property work less efficiently.

In terms of how often your septic tank should be emptied will depend on several factors such as:

  • The size of the tank
  • The number of people within the property
  • Your water usage
  • The tank’s age and general condition

So we recommend emptying your tank on a regular basis.

What are the main septic tank regulations?

The Environment Agency set out that septic tanks and cesspits must meet:

  • No foul water to discharge to ditch or ground surface from septic tanks
  • Septic tanks must have T pipes in place to avoid sewerage contamination
  • All septic tanks must be registered with the Environment Agency
  • Any damage to the existing septic tank itself would require a new tank to ensure it complies
  • All septic tanks must be within 30 metres of a hard-standing area
  • If a public sewer is within 30 metres of the property and the existing septic tank does not comply, the drainage must be diverted to the sewer system

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.

Full details can be found on the government website or give us a call on 0800 136 658 to discuss any concerns you may have.
