Septic Tank Emptying Service

The experts in portable toilet cleaning & septic tank emptying and desludging services in Scotland. Keep your units sanitised, well-maintained & long-lasting.

Before we get down to the details, we thought we’d take this opportunity to share a little bit about us and where our Honeywagon name came from.

Originating in the United States, “Honeywagon” is a slang term typically used to describe heavy duty vacuum trucks which are used to collect and dispose of, well… waste. These trucks are used for all manner of areas including aircrafts, trains, outdoor camping grounds and of course – our personal favourite – portable toilet units. Essentially, wherever you have the need for restrooms but do not have access to mains drainage – you need a Honeywagon.

Septic tank emptying services in Scotland

premium septic tank emptying service in ScotlandWe are aiming to be the top providers of septic tank emptying services in Scotland. And why is this service so necessary? For preservation! Septic Tanks are expensive, and so too septic tank repairs– particularly if they are frequent due to lack of maintenance and even more so if they are unnecessary in the first place. Also known as, desludging, this is the process of removing the waste, scum and sludge layers from your septic tank. 

If you have a septic tank in your industrial or domestic property you know how vital quality maintenance is for maximising the longevity of your tank. Failure to do so leads to build up, blockages and eventually irreversible damage.

Emergency septic tank emptying

Septic tanks are used for the collection of waste from properties. They work by collecting waste, breaking it down, treating the waste and finally draining it from your property or site. Failure to adequately manage your tank by arranging regular emptying and cleaning can often lead to faults or damage which are costly, inconvenient and pretty unpleasant all round to have fixed. This is why we also offer emergency septic tank emptying if required. It’s simple really – if you don’t take care of her, she won’t take care of you!

The Scottish Environmental Protection Agency (SEPA) recommends emptying your domestic septic tank once a year, based on a family of up to five people. Whilst it’s not a service that you need all too often, it’s probably one of the most vital to remember you schedule.

So, make the process easy and convenient for yourself and set up an annual service by Honeywagon. We will remind you when your service is coming up, in order that you can choose a suitable time for us to arrive.

Traditionally, Honeywagons were horse-drawn but you won’t find any of that around here. Oh no – just a couple of our most handsome Honeywagon staff turning up on your doorstop ready to handle business with zero-disruption, quality banter on tap & a promise of getting the job done in the most efficient way possible.

This service would include emptying of waste using our Honeywagon vacuum tankers and cleaning of the tank to prepare it for the upcoming years usage. This is an excellent opportunity as well for us to check for any signs of wear and tear – again pre-empting and helping to avoid costly and unexpected damage and repairs.

What’s the cost to empty a septic tank?

The cost to empty a septic tank can vary depending on a few factors. The size of your tank, the amount of waste it contains, and your location can all affect the cost. It’s important to note that failing to have your septic tank emptied regularly can lead to costly emergency repairs in the future.

It’s hard to see the glamour in septic tank emptying and it’s no doubt a messy job but we knew what we were getting in to. For us, it’s not about what we’re doing – it’s about the fact that there is a job to be done and we pride ourselves on delivering essential waste management services to all our valued customers.

These tanks are most often seen in rural properties which again do not have access to mains drainage. The lure of rural living should not have to come with compromises or sacrifices in your sanitation standards. In fact, in this day and age – and with the help of Honeywagon – this process should be no more complicated than having a package delivered.

Whilst our Honeywagon vacuum trucks are fit for purpose they are also perfectly sized in order to be able to access anything from your rural property to urban industrial sites. We’re the perfect fit!

Septic Tank Desludging

Septic tank desludging is the process of removing sludge and other solids from the bottom of your septic tank. Over time, these solids can build up and cause blockages, which can lead to backups and other plumbing issues. Desludging your septic tank is an essential part of septic tank maintenance and should be done every three to five years.

We’re also happy to provide you with our expert knowledge on how you can best maintain your tank throughout the year when we are not there; including what you should and should not be putting down your drains. Again, this all sounds simple but like everything else around your home, it needs to be treated with care and consideration in order that it is able to cope with the demands of busy family life or use on an even grander scale such as in industrial environments.

Large and industrial septic tank emptying

Septic tanks which are used on industrial sites, will require more frequent emptying which we are also able to arrange and provide practical support and advice to ensure that tanks which are used for this purpose are long-lasting.

There’s really no job that we can’t or won’t do. In fact, we love offering services that others maybe wouldn’t. We believe this speaks to the overall principles which underpin Honeywagon – hard work, commitment, quality and customer satisfaction!
