Septic tank emptying is necessary to ensure the long-term health of the tank itself. At DFM, we understand this requirement and work to the needs of our clients, emptying waste quickly and with the utmost regard for health and safety standards. No matter the size of the tank or the date of its previous service, our drainage company removes all waste efficiently so you can enjoy the ultimate peace of mind.
Situated in Great Gransden, DFM empties septic tanks for clients in Bedford, Bishop’s Stortford, Cambridge, Hertford, Hitchin, Letchworth Garden City, Milton Keynes, Peterborough, Stevenage, St Neots and the East of England.
The Environment Agency advises that tanks should be emptied at least once a year by licenced waste carriers. However, this may vary depending on the size of your tank and its level of use. Septic tanks are considered to be full when solid material, or sludge, fills 35% of the tank.
With many years’ experience delivering professional drainage services, we are happy to advise our customers on an appropriate emptying schedule for individual system requirements.
Our drainage company uses cutting-edge equipment for septic tank emptying, clearing scum, sludge and other waste material. With a fleet of specialist tankers and powerful vacuuming machinery, we empty septic tanks of every size and model, including large-scale commercial septic tanks.
Preventive maintenance is key to the long-term health of your septic tank and is typically more cost-effective than repairs. Furthermore, property owners have a responsibility to comply with legal regulations, and we can advise on these if necessary.
DFM is fully compliant with ISO 14001, ISO 18001 and ISO 9001. In addition, we are proud to be Environment Agency approved to carry and dispose of septic tank waste. Every member of our team receives full environmental awareness training to ensure we continue to maintain the highest standards.
