Septic Tank Cleaning Auckland

Septic tank cleaning

The liquid waste from your household flows from the house to the septic tank, where it undergoes a settlement process and partial treatment by bacteria. Your septic tank retains fats and solids and releases the liquid portion of the waste.

To maintain the optimal performance of your septic system, it’s advisable to schedule Septic tank emptying every three to five years. Waiting until the tank reaches full capacity is a common misconception that should be avoided.

If you require Septic tank cleaning in Auckland, The Drain company is here to help. Our team of expertly trained professionals use high-quality vacuum pumps and equipment to keep your septic tank working as efficiently as the days it was installed.

  • Eliminating health and environmental hazards associated with blockages, poor drainage, or overflow.
  • Eliminating unpleasant odours.
  • Prolonging the lifespan of your tank.
  • Preventing issues with your tank or drainage lines, which could lead to expensive repairs in the future.

How do you tell when your septic tank needs emptying?

Determining the frequency of septic tank cleaning depends on various factors such as;

  • The household size
  • Tank size,
  • Usage during summer holidays, and the quantity of cleaning products used.
