Septic Tank/Cesspit

Questions

If your home is not connected to mains drainage then you will probably be using a septic tank or cesspit.We supply 2000, 4000 and 6000 gallon vacuum tankers offering a full tanker service at a range of sites and domestic properties. At CRES we provide a complete tanker service, emptying and disposing of the waste in your tank in accordance with correct and lawful procedures.

 

Who should I contact to empty my tank?

By law you are required to have your tank emptied by a fully licensed operator
who is registered with the Environment Agency to carry septic tank waste.

How often do I need to have my septic tank emptied?

It is recommended that you empty your tank every 12 months. This is important 
in order to ensure that it continues to function correctly. In some cases your tank 
may need to be emptied more frequently, this will depend on the size of your tank 
and/or the number of people living in your household. 

How much will it cost to empty my septic tank?

The cost depends on the size of your tank and your location. Please ring us 
for a quotation based on your specific requirements.
