Our team are happy for you to contact us with any questions about your unique drainage requirements. Here, we look at the benefits of installing a new septic tank, including:


A new septic tank is typically less costly than installing sewage pipes, which makes it a popular choice amongst homeowners. The installation costs of these tanks are relatively affordable, and they have good longevity, which means you won’t have to pay for a replacement any time soon. They are built to last, so it’s also unlikely you’ll have to budget for repairs.

Environmentally Friendly

Septic tanks are an environmentally friendly installation, especially in comparison to leaky sewage pipes that can contaminate groundwater. A new septic tank is much less vulnerable to leaks, but in the unlikely situation it does, the issue is contained and will not have widespread implications. In addition, these tanks are designed to filter wastewater, so by the time they reach the soil, any bacteria has been removed and can actually encourage plant growth.

Our drainage company offers septic tank emptying to keep your system functioning optimally. We cover all customers in and around Cambridgeshire by offering CCTV drain surveys, cesspit cleaning and tanker services. Our team can also clear any blocked toilets or blocked drains on properties and even manage new drainage installations.

Low Maintenance

As mentioned earlier, these tanks are built to last, which means they require little maintenance to function optimally. We recommend using our emptying service annually to keep them in top condition. As well as emptying, tanks must be cleaned, which you can also rely on our professionals for.

At the time of installation, we can set up a maintenance schedule so you never have to worry about clearing your septic tank.

Water Efficiency

With long showers and small laundry loads, we have all been careless with water waste at one time or another. Septic tanks are built to store liquid waste, but as with any system, the sheer volume of liquid processed daily can strain it. Owning a septic tank encourages people to take control of their water wastage and reduce it. This is not only eco-friendly but also a positive investment.
