Septic Tank Cleaning

Septic Tank Cleaning

AQS carries out domestic septic tank cleaning and desludging service for many customers. Our powerful industrial suction tanker units are also ideally suited for quickly and safely emptying septic tanks at private homes.

We schedule and plan domestic septic tank cleaning and emptying on the terms that best suit the needs of homeowners. This is usually on an annual basis. All the wastewater collected from the septic tanks is delivered to licensed wastewater treatment facilities.

We are permitted to carry this waste material to disposal. We also provide a proof of maintenance for your records in the event of a local authority inspection.

What are the signs that your septic tank is full?
The tell tale sign that you’re due septic tank cleaning is when sewage is backing up but other signs that you need to call a septic tank cleaner includes:

  • Slow Drain – this might just be a clog but it could mean your tank if full
  • Bad Odours – bad odours could be a sign that you need to invest in septic tank cleaning
  • Pooling Water – water pooling around your septic tank after rainfall can be a sign that your septic tank is full
  • A Change in Your Lawn – a healthier looking lawn around your septic tank and nowhere else in your garden is a sure sign that your septic tank is full
