There's nothing we can't empty and clean

Households without access to mains drainage are recommended to have cesspits and septic tanks emptied at regular intervals to avoid unwanted disruption and problems. If yours hasn't been emptied in a while, you might experience excess water puddling around the tank, a bad smell coming from the septic tank or slow drainage from your kitchen sink or bath.

BPL Drainage provide:

  • Septic Tank Emptying
  • Cesspit Emptying
  • Swimming Pool Emptying
  • Pond Emptying
  • Pump Station Emptying
  • Gully Emptying
  • Sewage Tank Emptying

I called Basement Pumps a few days ago to deal with flooding in my mum's cellar. Rick arrived as arranged this morning with his 2 colleagues. They very efficiently fixed the sump pump that had stopped working and offered a solution regarding the discharge of the water outside. They explained what had gone wrong with the pump we were using and set it up to work more effectively.
