The benefits of upgrading your septic tank

Did you know that even the best septic tanks break down over time and need to be replaced? Unfortunately, nothing lasts forever. But replacing your old septic tank with a sturdy new one can give you 30-40 years of great service. Our septic tank install services are available throughout Scotland and we are experts at removing old tanks and replacing them with modern ones.

Why do I need to replace my septic tank?

Septic tanks are prone to wear and tear just like anything else. Seals can start to degrade, holes can begin to develop and cracks can start to spread across their length. 

Once problems like this begin, things are only going to get worse. If a leak develops and your septic tank begins to pollute the surrounding ground and water then the Scottish Environmental Protection Agency, your local council or even your neighbours could begin action against you to force you to solve the problem. If you fail to take action, then you might be committing a criminal offence. 

This could become a bigger problem if your tank were to collapse, as that would pose a serious hazard to people, pets and wildlife. 

If you think your tank has developed a problem, or just want the peace of mind that a new septic tank brings, we can replace it for you with a newer model.

Signs of septic tank faults

There are a few signs you can look out for if you are worried that your septic tank has developed a fault. These include:

  • An awful smell is coming from around your septic tank or surrounding areas
  • Liquid or lots of mud is consistently found near your septic tank
  • Ground is moving near your tank
  • Your tank needs to be emptied more regularly than it used to
  • Septic tanks also take the wastewater from washing machines and dishwashers, so if you notice they are draining slower than usual, you might have a problem.

If you experience any of these, then give us a call. We can investigate and advise.

The benefits of installing a new septic tank

A brand new septic tank gives you the peace of mind that all your sewage pipework is in perfect condition. Even if there are no obvious problems on the surface, if you have an older septic tank then it’s far better to change it out now before it deteriorates at an inopportune time. 

One of the biggest benefits to installing a new tank is the peace of mind it gives you. Everything will run perfectly. And if your family has grown – or you are planning to grow it – then this is a great opportunity to get a larger tank.

A new septic tank will give you decades of great service (just remember to maintain it correctly). We offer our installation services all across Scotland. Whether you live in a local village or the back of beyond, we can help! Get in touch today and we can start chatting about what you need and how we can perform a septic tank install at your location.
