Important Facts About Septic & Water Tank Cleaning Services

After a pump out, the sewage is disposed of at the Hunter Waters Facility at Dora Creek, where they purify it and recycle it. The treated effluent is then reused at the local Eraring power station. This makes for a more sustainable solution for sewage.  

Septic tank systems, new and old are not as simple as many people think. Making sure your tank and septic system is working as effectively and as safely as possible takes experience and know how.

I worked as a licenced Plumber for over 45 years and though I am an Aussie through and through, I have worked with septic systems all over the world.

From the vast plains of Africa to the tiny British Channel Isles off the coast of France, I worked with septic systems, and in parts of the world where no other waste treatment alternatives even existed.

Working in these parts as an advisor, installer and all round Mr. Fix It, I got pretty good at these systems, and now I can bring this experience to bear for you too.

Yes! When your septic tank cleaning is completed, you will be presented with a Septic Tank Cleaning Audit.

Your septic tank cleaning audit is a written report that will give you a detailed analysis of your septic system. Your audit lets you know exactly the state of your septic tank.

Your audit will also highlight any nasty surprises that could be waiting around the corner for you. So you can know the condition of your system, and identify any areas of concern that may exist.

With systems like this, an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure and that is specifically what your Septic Tank Audit is for, it can save you a bundle.

Is your septic tank in a hard to get to place on your land or property?

Is it in an area that’s too small or too sensitive for a large vehicle to intrude (even a pocket dynamo like mine)?

This is no problem.

My septic tank cleaning truck has 110 metres of pump-out hose, that’s as long as a footy field (over 295 feet). So it can reach an awful long way to get to your septic tank without disturbing a single thing. I just park on your driveway and roll out the hose.

This is so you can get the job you want, done properly without invading any sensitive areas on your property.

In fact, I may not even have to drive on to your property at all.

These days we all get pretty busy, so when you make an appointment to get something done (even septic tank cleaning), you want to be certain it is going to happen when you want.

I pride myself on this, your time is valuable to me and I will never waste it – ever.

When you book your septic tank cleaning I will arrange a time with you that fits into your schedule.

I will be there when I say, so you are left waiting around. On the off chance if I am delayed, for any reason, I will be on the phone to you right away to let you know.

It’s that simple.

In fact, the loudest noise you will probably hear will be me closing the lid on your septic tank when the job’s done.

All the septic tank cleaning hardware I use is all the latest tech. This makes sure it’s extremely efficient. This combined with the right experience helps guarantee your septic tank cleaning is carried out perfectly.

My Pump Out System is based on a Vacuum Tank principle. This means the pump only runs at the beginning, to suck the air out of the tank prior to my cleaning your septic tank. The process of creating a vacuum in the tank itself only takes about 60 seconds, so the pump only runs for that short length of time.

Being state of the art, the pump itself is very quiet and is further aided by two silencers. These act like huge car mufflers and help keep the whole operation as quiet as possible.

The septic cleaning pump is powered completely by the truck’s own hydraulics system. There is no separate (and noisy) motor to make it work.

An added benefit to you is the pumping equipment works at peak efficiency when the truck’s engine is only idling. This means the trucks engine doesn’t need to be gunned (revved up) to make the pump work.

So no undue or any extra noise at all.

Had Kieran from Wards clean our water tank today. After he left there was a problem with getting water to the house and even though Kieran didn't cause it, he and Paul helped us work out what the issue was. Your assistance and prompt response to our calls on a Saturday afternoon was greatly appreciated. Oh, and the inside of the tank is so clean!

Our plumbing company LMN Plumbing used Ward Septics recently and I would highly recommend them to others. Very quick and efficient service and great to support a local business.
Absolutely exceptional service. Did an amazing job of fixing two septic tanks and very old pipes that had not been used for over 6 months. I don’t usually write reviews, but it’s rare to see such excellent service and to meet such a lovely, positive and hard working individual as Paul.

I called Ward Septics for a remote cleaning job I had in the lower Hunter Valley region. My call was answered, the process was clearly explained and a very reasonable price was made clear up-front. I went ahead and proceeded with the call-out and clean which they arranged around my schedule. Fantastic service from Paul. Highly recommended. We'll be using Ward Septics for all our tank cleaning requirements and plumbing advice from now on. Thanks again!
