Why Are Cesspits and Septic Tanks in Lancashire So Important?

There are several reasons why properties in Lancashire might be required to utilise cesspits and septic tanks. For the most part, these waste management solutions are only used when connection to the mains sewer lines is not possible. This can be due to:

  • The Location of the Property – If your property, either domestic, commercial or industrial, is too far from a mains sewer line, it will need to rely on a septic tank or cesspit. These waste management solutions can be the only way you’ll be able to equip your property with modern drainage systems.
  • Over Capacity – If your property or facility generates too much waste for the mains sewer lines to deal with, you may need to rely on septic tanks or cesspits. Otherwise, you could cause serious damage and blockages to the mains sewer lines.
  • A New-Build – If your domestic, commercial or industrial property is a newer construction, it may be that accessing the nearest mains sewer lines is impossible. In these cases, a septic tank is the most common solution.

If your property has any of these limitations to deal with, septic tanks and cesspits can be absolutely essential. Here at Drain Doctor Preston, we can provide a complete range of services to ensure that your domestic, commercial or industrial property’s waste management solution continues to work as intended.

Septic Tanks Cleaning and Emptying in Lancashire

As part of our comprehensive service, our team of drainage engineers can quickly and easily clean and empty all kinds of waste management solutions. We specialise in emptying septic tanks of all kinds of waste quickly and professionally. As part of our complete services, we can offer one-off septic tank clearance, or schedule regular emptying services to prevent your waste management solution from overflowing. We typically recommend that these septic tanks are emptied every 6 – 12 months, depending on their size and how heavily they are used.

If allowed to overflow, or fill beyond capacity, septic tanks can cause a range of serious issues. In addition to suffering serious damage themselves, these tanks and pits can lead to a variety of issues for the surrounding environment. That’s not to mention the unpleasant environment that a damaged septic tank could cause.

Septic Tank Repairs in Lancashire

If your septic tank system has suffered any form of damage, either due to wear and tear, improper care or nearby groundworks, our team can work to resolve them. We can repair any issues with your system, including damage to the tank itself or the attached drain pipes. Although they are naturally resistant to all kinds of damage, septic tank systems can suffer if they are used improperly or poorly maintained over many years.

Disposing of unsuitable materials remains one of the main causes of septic tank damage in the UK. Some of the most common ingredients which can cause damage to your septic tank system can include:

  • Food Waste, including Solid Food Waste and Fats, Oils and Greases (FOGs).
  • Kitchen Rolls, Baby Wipes and Wet Wipes.
  • Make-Up Waste.
  • Medical Waste.

Regular Septic Tank Maintenance in Lancashire

In addition to emptying and repair services for your septic tank, we can also deliver regular and reliable maintenance. In addition to emptying services, most septic tank systems should undergo maintenance every 12 – 18 months. This can be a great way to identify any problems before they develop.

By choosing to take advantage of regular septic tank maintenance in Lancashire, you’ll be able to avoid all kinds of damage and other concerns. This can be essential if you want to avoid septic tank repairs or replacement projects which can be extremely costly.
