Septic Tank Maintenance

Maintaining a septic tank requires a trained engineer who understands the anaerobic processes treatment. Our specialist team are trained to remove domestic wastewater from your toilets, sinks, showers and baths and have an in-depth knowledge of fecal sludge management and domestic wastewater. Our team always works to the current environmental permit and EWC code.

Cesspit Maintenance

HCL’s specialist team is employed to clean every cesspit by using a vacuum truck that pumps and drains it. Our state of the art trucks contain a tank chamber for basic separation and a powerful suctioning hose to remove domestic wastewater. Pumped cesspits should be completely drained of both liquids, solids and sludge – partially dissolved matter that gets lodged in the underground chamber until removed..

Septic Tank and Cesspit Services We Offer

Cesspit and Septic Tank Inspection We inspect your septic tank in a number of ways, depending on the size and accessibility of your tank. We conduct full visual inspections for onsite sewage facilities, CCTV inspections, and empty visual inspections that are all performed to ensure that your septic tank is functional. Before we conduct any remedial work, we carry out an inspection to ensure that the waste conforms to the EWC codes raised in the Works Authorisation code.

Cesspit and Septic Tank Cleaning

Maintaining a septic tank is crucial in ensuring that it stays in functional working order. We provide regular contracted cleaning, as well as deep cleaning options. To combat contamination, we deep clean all traces of hazardous waste and flush the system to reduce domestic wastewater. We also use an anaerobic processes treatment to quickly degrade organic contaminants.

The Difference Between A Septic Tank And A Cesspit

A cesspit is a sealed underground tank that collects wastewater and sewage. There is no processing or treatment involved. In contrast, a septic tank uses a simple treatment process which allows the treated wastewater to drain away to a soakaway.
