Septic Tank Cleaning

Septic Tank Emptying, Cleaning and Desludging Service

One of the core services of AQS is the provision of a professional, compliant septic tank desludging service.

Desludging also referred to as the emptying or cleaning of a tank is something that must be carried out from time to time to ensure the proper functioning of your septic tank.

In order to have properly functioning septic tank systems, routine desludging is an absolute necessity. The vacuum tanker units AQS utilise for septic tank desludging services are powerful, versatile machines and also have water jetting systems, which are used to jet blocked drains and sewer lines associated with the septic tanks, if required.

Suction distance from tank to roadway is never an issue for AQS.

All wastes extracted from septic tanks are delivered to authorised disposal facilities and we have a national waste collection permit to enable our service, and upon completion of the service a desludging docket is retained by the customer as proof or service.

Our professional truck operators are a pleasure to deal with and extreme care is taken to ensure there is no damage caused to property in the form of spillages or impact on lawns, shrub’s, hedging and associated landscaped areas.

Our modern trucks are also fitted with jetting systems which enable us to jet wash any drains as required.

If required, we can establish a routine desludging agreement with you.

In the recently published, government commissioned River Basin Management Plan for Ireland ( 2018 – 2021 ),  in 2016, under the EPA’s national inspection plan  for domestic waste water treatment systems, it was  found  that 1,110 inspections were carried out that year and that 49% (544) of the systems inspected failed. Of these, 24% (131) failed due to lack of desludging.
