What size is my septic tank?

One of the first questions we tend to ask when we receive an enquiry for a septic tank empty is “What size is your septic tank?”.

Although you may assume you should know, we completely understand that it is not necessarily an easy question to answer. You may have recently purchased or rented the property and there may be little knowledge on the waste system.

We normally ask the question however, in order to assess the amount of waste we need to collect. This helps us organise the correct equipment and vehicle for the job in hand.

As this information is quite difficult to know off-hand, we have put this blog together to help you find out the size of your Septic Tank.

Tip 1 – Documents.

In some circumstances, the property owner will have documentation of the septic tank installation. This documentation will normally hold the information we need to identify the exact size of the tank itself, or at the least give us a good indication.

Tip 2 – Inspection.

We will normally conduct an inspection of the tank upon arrival for the empty. If no information can be found then an inspection is the best way for us to gather the information we need.

In this scenario, we will normally bring what we assume will be the correct equipment for emptying the tank, on the day of inspection, so we can get right to work if we feel we are fully prepared to empty the tank there and then. You’ll be pleased to know this is the case the majority of the time.

If you wish to book an empty or inspection, pleaseClick Here and fill out one of our enquiry forms and we will be in touch as soon as we can.
