Cesspit & Septic Tank Emptying

Know your waste water tank legal requirements

From 2020, the UK government has brought new laws into effect for those with septic tanks and cesspits, prohibiting from waste discharge directly into a watercourse.

This rule is applicable for all new and old septic tank and cesspit solutions. Failure to follow the latest rules on sewerage water or releasing sewage water illegally can result in a large fine.

To ensure you don’t overfil your septic tank or cesspit, get in touch today to book an emptying service with one of our drainage engineers.

Know your waste water tank legal requirements

•If the septic tank becomes too full, the sewerage water will flow into the area around the tank, even backfill towards the house
•Your sinks, toilets and other drains may take longer to empty, even if you have tried to unblock the drainage system
•Solids may leach into the soakaway causing damage to the soakaway, or worse, sewerage water could enter waterways which is a criminal offence!
•You may begin to smell a foul, nasty stench around the location of the septic tank
•Damage to your buildings or neighbouring buildings may occur as the waste water management becomes distrupted resulting in settling pools that can ingress into brickwork.
