Tank Emptying

Best practice for septic tanks is to empty and monitor them regularly to keep on top of any potential problems. Failing to schedule regular maintenance may result in sewage backups which are unpleasant and potentially dangerous. Drain Doctor has the experience and equipment to handle the whole process from installation to the regular upkeep of septic tanks, ensuring clients don’t have to endure pungent smells, gurgling pipes, slow flushing toilets and waste backup.

Cesspit Emptying, Maintenance and Installation

If a property is unable to connect to the mains sewers there are multiple solutions available including a cesspit, where sewage is held in a tank. Cesspit installation consists of a cylindrical chamber of around 1 metre in diameter that’s placed 2-3 metres underground. Cesspits are designed to hold 45 days’ worth of wastewater and are fitted with an alarm to alert when it requires emptying. Drain Doctor manage cesspits for clients to ensure they are emptied, maintained, and issues such as clogged pipes are prevented.

Septic Tanks

As septic tank specialists, Drain Doctor provide a full range of tanker services to help handle wastewater.

Septic tank installation – We design and install new septic tank systems, and offer advice on the most appropriate size and location for your tank.

Septic tank maintenance – Our engineers make repairs to existing tanks, associated drains and access covers. We perform essential maintenance to remove blockages and avoid odour issues.

Septic tank emptying and cleaning – regular septic tank emptying and the use of high-pressure water jets to keep pipework, tanks and soakaways clean are essential to ensure the longevity of a septic tank.

Sewage Treatment Plants

Sewage treatment plants are able to serve more than one property. The installation of a sewage treatment plant provides a long-term solution to many drainage disposal problems, especially where access to mains drainage is not possible, and a septic tank will not meet the requirements.

Soakaways and Drainage Fields

Soakaways are underground and used to dispose of excess rainwater or the wastewater that flows into a septic tank. Solid materials are kept inside a septic tank while the soakaway system allows wastewater to percolate back into the earth. Drain Doctor engineers have years of experience designing, installing and maintaining soakaway surface water drainage systems for residential and commercial buildings.
