The Riverland Tank and Drain Septic Tank Cleaners offers septic tank cleaning, pumping and pumpouts. As the basic treatment point for domestic wastewater, septic tanks treat wastewater produced by bathrooms, kitchen drains and laundries. When this waste water passes through the system, solid matter is broken into a sludge-like material, and separated from the remaining liquid. While fluids are distributed into underground dispersion areas, the left-over sediment sinks to the bottom. Healthy bacterial digestion ensures the quantity of solids is significantly reduced, but some sludge will inevitably remain.
A septic tank is an efficient and convenient facility, especially for properties in rural or remote areas, but regular cleaning and maintenance is required. Relevant upkeep will:
- Prevent sewage drain blockages
- Avoid discharge of raw sewerage
- Eliminate bad smells
- Improve the system’s efficiency
- Extend the expected lifespan

Regular septic tank cleaning can be scheduled in advance, to ensure a regular routine is maintained. A pump-out service is required before levels reach of the total volume, which will depend on the level of usage. After a pre-service inspection, the time taken to complete the clean may depend on the size of tank or distance from the road to your tank opening. Minor digging may be needed to uncover the lids and complete the process.
Our cleaning regime includes:
- Pumping out the septic tank to the bottom
- Hosing, scraping down and cleaning all interior surfaces of the tank
- Removing accumulated tree roots
- Providing service reports on the conditions on the inlet and outlet
- Refilling the tank with clean water
- Returning all items to their original location
Once the sediment is cleaned out and all waste is removed, our operators will then re-examine your septic tank for any underlying issues or damage. If any problems are identified, our team to arrange the relevant repairs or make recommendations. The septic tank will be re-sealed once all maintenance is complete.
The recommended cleaning frequency of a septic tank system depends on the level of usage. Systems being used more often require less cleaning, as the usage will routinely flush out the system. The easiest way to determine the relevant cleaning requirements is to assess the system on the number of people regularly using it.
