Septic Tank Emptying

GEWS offers a range of septic tank de-sludging services.

These services are available to householders who own a private septic tank which takes standard waste, such as sewage and waste water. We continually aim to deliver a high service level to all our customers. Septic tank located remotely in fields can be serviced with our off road tractor and tanker unit.

There are three levels of service available to you:

  • • Scheduled Service

When you sign a contract we will de-sludge your septic tank at yearly intervals. A planned schedule of regular de-sludging services helps to keep your charges - and our costs – down, which is passed on to our customers with discounted rates. This service is charged at the approved rates in operation at the time of each de-sludging service. To select this service please complete and return an application form.

  • • Unscheduled Service

If you don't want to enter into a contract, we will de-sludge your septic tank within 5 working days of your request where possible, but may take up to 28 days maximum. This service is on our standard rates.

If, unfortunately, we are unable to accommodate the above timescales, you will be notified at the time of booking.

  • • Urgent Response Service

If you need your septic tank de-sludged urgently we'll aim to attend within 2 working days of your request where possible. Charges for this work will be discussed on an individual basis.

If we are unable to accommodate the above timescales, you will be notified at the time of booking.

PLEASE NOTE – when “ emptying” or de-sludging your septic tank there is always a residual amount of sludge left behind to seed the tank with the suitable bacteria to digest the effluent and kick start the process of treatment. Dependant on the nature of your system and the drainage field ( soak –away) the amount of liquid within the septic tank can return to “ as before” level quickly. 

GEWS Ltd can also undertake Septic Tank surveys to provide the householder with a regular report on the physical condition of their septic tank (and also where possible the drainage field )
