Cornwall septic tanks









Cornwall septic tank emptying

Septic tank specialist, Mike Barker, of St Austell offer a septic tank emptying service throughout St. Austell, Bodmin and the surrounding areas of Cornwall.

Septic tanks are used when it is not possible to connect the drainage system of a property to the mains drainage system. Septic Tanks and Cesspools can be effective ways of dealing with foul drainage provided they are managed correctly.

On average we each produce approximately 200 litres of waste water per day. Any drainage system has to have sufficient capacity to deal with these quantities, bearing in mind the number of people in the house.



We usually recommend that this service is performed once a year but this does depends on the amount of waste going into the tank and its size.

Regular emptying and cleaning of a septic tank greatly reduces the risk of it overflowing or causing blockages in your sewage system leaving it working much more efficiently.

Do's & Don'ts

Don't dispose of commercial chemicals, medicines, disposable nappies, incontinence pads or feminine hygiene products down the toilet.
Do have the tank "de-sludged" regularly.
