Septic Tank Cleaning

A septic tank that is not maintained will eventually become a serious health hazard, they can spread disease and contaminate nearby water sources. Septic tanks need regular maintenance, which is where Allens United Paeroa can help you out.

Regular septic tank maintenance is required to reduce the buildup of irreducible solids which settle and gradually fill the tank, making the tank less efficient. In most areas of New Zealand septic tank maintenance is required by law. Owners of unmaintained septic tanks will eventually be left with a non-working tank and costly repair bills when the soakage line is destroyed by leaking solids, while a properly maintained septic tank system will last for decades.

In order to best clean your tank we will have to dig up an area to expose the lid we will do it and not leave you with a big mess to clean up. Keep your septic tank serviced regularly, every 2 to 3 years to prevent blockages and leaks. It’s cheaper to service your septic tank than to repair blocked drains and replace disposal fields.
