Septic Tank Emptying & Cleaning

Septic tank emptying jobs are completed by our custom built vacuum tankers and highly trained personnel.

The high capacity septic tank emptying vehicles are fully equipped with various lengths of hose to ensure that whatever location the tank is in, we’re prepared.

Our typical service area includes Properties in Leicestershire, Warwickshire, Derbyshire, Nottinghamshire, Staffordshire, Northamptonshire and Rutland. Wrights of Twycross have specialised vehicles and fully trained operators to provide a clean and efficient domestic service to customers.

A septic tank is considered to be part of a sewage treatment system and does have an outlet that runs to a soak-away. They are believed to require emptying every 12 months

A cesspit which is sometimes referred to as a cesspool could be viewed as a holding tank without an outlet. It is also not considered to be part of a sewage system. It is mainly used for the storage of wastes. In terms of maintenance, cesspits are required to be emptied regularly, approximately 45 days, based on the capacity and degree of use. A cesspit is therefore believed to be an adhoc or temporary solution for areas that do not have main drainage or have incompatible or inappropriate ground conditions.

Allowing a septic tank or Cess Pit to become blocked or full can pose a number of problems, not just for your property, but potentially the environment as well. It is therefore vital to ensure that it is regularly and professionally emptied.

As registered waste carriers, Wrights of Twycross Limited is able to provide tankering services for the removal and disposal of septic tank/cesspit waste. Our specially adapted fleet of tankers can handle capacities of up to 6,000 gallons and with various hose lengths, our service guarantees access and capacity to serve all requirements.

All we’ll need to know from you is:

  • An estimate of the hose length required (i.e. the distance from your tank to the road/drive).
    The location of your septic tank/cesspit.
  • Any other information which would be useful for our drivers to empty your tank efficiently.
  • Our experienced and thoroughly trained drivers can then do the rest.
