How Often Do I Need My Holding Tank Emptying in Cornwall?

The wastewater from your toilet, sinks, shower, dishwasher and washing machine all goes into your holding tank. Therefore, if you fail to empty your holding tank frequently enough, the consequences can include sewage backup in your vehicle, which is both hazardous to your health and can cause a variety of adverse knock-on effects. For that reason, it’s crucial to call a holding tank company in Cornwall before your tank is completely full.


Holding tanks that are used frequently need emptying, on average, every six to eight weeks. However, if you only use your caravan on a seasonal basis, you may get away with calling the professionals for holding tank emptying once or twice a year. Remember; the cleaner you keep your holding tank, the longer it will survive while remaining safe and functional. If you have any questions about our holding tank services in Cornwall, don’t hesitate to call us.

Comprehensive Holding Tank Management and Cleaning Services

Due to the nature of sewage holding tanks, downtime or loss of service is something you simply can’t afford. A failed holding tank is going to require servicing and remedial work that could knock your personal schedule off course, especially when you have a long trip booked or are relying on the use of your vehicle.

For that reason, we recommend a regular inspection which will ensure that your holding tank is always ready for use and won’t let you down when you need it most. Holding tank management in Cornwall and Devon is something that we specialise in, and we do it well.

If you’re wondering how we could assist you, give us a call or send us an email and we will provide a full overview of the services we offer, and at the same time, tell you exactly what might be right for you.
