Septic Tank Emptying
The septic tank is designed to retain sludge and allow the partially treated effluent to drain out through a soakaway which makes its way to a watercourse.
The tank should be emptied of sludge annually to prevent the effluent from becoming contaminated with faecal matter. Guidance for looking after your septic tank can be accessed from Scottish Water and Sepa.
WWS can provide a range of High powered Vacuum Tankers to remove the sludge and waste water from your tank. The vehicles come in varying sizes which helps with access issues. We can also provide tank cleaning service on request.
