How often should you have your tank emptied?

Maintaining your septic tank or cesspit is extremely important, and emptying is key to a healthy, efficient and reliable system. That said, it’s difficult to say how often you should empty your tank without knowing more about your existing setup and capacity. As a general guide for domestic customers, you should consider emptying your tank every 3 – 6 months depending on the size of the tank and the usage, as this will reduce the risk of blocked drains or overspill. Fortunately, Thistle Tanks’ experienced drivers are fully trained to cater for septic tank and cesspit tank clearance of most capacities — up to 15,000 litres. We are qualified to carry out this type of work in line with industry standards and regulations, such as the Health and Safety Act, The Control of Substances Hazardous to Health Regulations and The Road and Street Works Act.
