What is a Tanker Service?
So, what exactly is a tanker service? Basically, if you have a failed pump and your wastewater tank, pump chamber or septic tank requires emptying, then we can undertake these works for you.
Where space is at a premium and properties are in close proximity to each other, such as in London, it can sometimes prove to be a struggle to allow a liquid waste tanker to park to service a property.
As part of our fleet of liquid waste tankers, we are able to offer smaller more compact tankers that thanks to their greater manoeuvrability are easier to park and cause fewer issues with congestion than traditional larger tankers.
Our liquid waste tankers come complete with a generous storage capacity. They have two tanks on board and have the ability to carry 1000 litres of clean water along with 2000 litres of wastewater which is ample for most jobs.
What Tanker Services Do We Offer?
At The Basement Sump and Pump Company, we provide a wide range of tanker services across England and Wales. Our highly qualified engineers are fully trained to provide all the services listed below to ensure that your drain is flowing freely in no time:
- Water removal and extraction
- Removal of water from flooded basements
- Septic tank / Cesspit emptying
- Flood response
- Jetting of drainage channels
- Clearing out of grease traps and drains
Flood Water Extraction
Vacuum tankers are the ideal solution when your property is suffering from either small scale or large scale flooding. As we have previously mentioned, our tankers have a carrying capacity of 2,000 litres. This means that they have the ability to extract any water that is entering and causing damage to your property.
Removal Of Water from Flooded Basements
Having standing water or foul waste in your basement is not what any property owner wants. As well as been unpleasant it can cause damage to the carpets or any furnishings. If you have standing water in the basement it can over a relatively small period of time start to smell.
If your basement is flooded from a pipe that has burst, then this can contain foul waste which is something you certainly do not want at your property.
We have a team of engineers on hand to clean and remove blockages in sewers. The main purpose for drain jetting is to remove any obstructions within the drains which will then allow the debris to safely move through the drainage system.
Septic Tank and Cesspit Emptying
When your domestic or commercial property is not connected to the main sewage system then this is where septic and cesspit tanks are used to collect wastewater and sewage.
Obviously, over time, the waste will start to build up and will need emptying. Once the septic tank has been emptied this will then be disposed of at a licensed waste facility.
Tank Cleaning Services
Not only do our tanker services include drain jetting and water removal but also the maintenance and cleaning of tanks. Our team are specialists in tank cleaning and have the necessary qualifications to be able to work in high risk environments.
As well as the maintenance and cleaning of the pipes, sewers and removing the build up of waste in the system, we will make sure that the system is working at full capacity.
