Having a septic tank means it's a lot easier to keep up with general household maintenance, as you don't have to worry about where your waste goes. However, this does mean that it's your responsibility to make sure the tank is checked regularly and emptied as needed.
When emptying a septic tank, be sure that you always ask for the area of the drainage field so that you do not damage it. Damaging the drainage field will mean you have to replace it, which can be very costly and time-consuming!
Many septic tanks need to be emptied every 3-6 months for safety, depending on how many people live in your property. If you have more than 2 people who use the toilet every day, then you should be looking to have your tank emptied at least once a month. In most cases, it's easiest to arrange septic tank emptying in the same visit as you have your tank inspected.
Septic tanks need to be maintained on a regular basis for safety and hygiene reasons, meaning that it's best not to leave it too long before your septic tank is emptied. If you don't have a pump-out service in place, then we at Blocked Drains Glasgow would be more than happy to help.
