How Often do I Need to Empty my Septic Tank? 

It is recommended to have your septic tank emptied at least once a year, but it is entirely up to you to decide how little and often it is done.

You should consider the amount of people in your household or business, as this will affect how quickly your septic tank fills up.

What are the Signs that your Septic Tank is Full?

Here are a few of the signs to look out for to show your tank is full:

  • A bad odour coming from the tank
  • The pipes are making irregular noises, including gurgling
  • Water takes a long time to drain when the plug is released
  • Problems with flushing the toilet
  • Flooding

If any of these signs are happening in your property, it is important to get in touch with a professional straight away.

Where Should a Septic Tank be Placed?

To have a septic tank, it must meet all the necessary health and safety regulations, which include the location of the tank itself. You will also need planning permission to have the septic tank. 

One of the regulations is that the tank should be placed at least 7 metres away from the household for health, safety and environmental reasonings. They also must be far away from water sources, to avoid pollution and contamination.
