Septic Tank Emptying and Cleaning

It is possible that some problems with your septic tank can be resolved quickly and easily – for example, by emptying the tank if it is overflowing. This might sound obvious, but your septic tank could be overflowing for innocent reasons before it is due to be emptied. In remote parts of Scotland like Argyll and Bute the elements can get the better of us, high levels of rainfall can cause overflowing or visiting friends and family can cause extra water usage. But if emptying the tank doesn’t get things moving again, you’ll need to find out what’s going on underground.

MBC Ltd are fully experienced in the Argyll & Bute area where no job is too far to reach or too deep to get at.

We recommend that tanks are emptied and cleaned every 1-2 years and in turn we can inspect your tank to check for damage such as cracks, blockages and wear and tear. If you are in any doubt as to whether you need your septic tank inspected or emptied please get in touch and a member of our team will be happy to assist you.

Some indications of septic system problems include:

  • Slow-flushing toilets

  • Slow drainage

  • Water backing up into sinks, showers or baths

  • Gurgling drainpipes

  • Sewage backing up in toilets

  • Unpleasant smells from drains or tank area

Getting your tank emptied and checked can also reduce costs further down the line. We are here to help so please get in touch.
