How long and how much does it cost per size of septic tank?


Septic tanks can cost anywhere between £150 – £500 up to 1000 gallons. Most tanks do not exceed that capacity.

*These prices can vary depending on the service provider and you should bear in mind that these prices will be the call out and emptying cost. If you need a septic tank repair or conversion, these services would be additional costs.


What else affects the cost to empty septic tanks?


The type of tank: If you have a simple septic tank with just a single chamber, this will often be cheaper to clean than multi-chamber tanks.

Ease of access: If your septic tank is easy to access, this will often mean that the cost will be kept low. However, if you live in a rural area away from main sewage systems, this is when the cost may change. Unfortunately with some properties, some septic tanks can be much harder to get to than others and this affects the cost.

Your location: Your location can have an impact on the cost of services, due to higher living costs in cities like London, compared to smaller towns and villages, and northern parts of the UK.
