Septic tank repair, installation and maintenance in Berkshire
The UKDP team works throughout Berkshire and the surrounding areas, and we appreciate that there are a number of more rural areas where properties aren’t able to connect to a main sewer.
These properties will typically have their own self contained drainage system, such as a septic tank, soakaway, cesspit or sewage treatment plant.
Are you having septic tank or soakaway problems in Berkshire?
Nasty niffs coming from your septic tank? Toilets taking longer to flush than usual?
If you’re starting to have some problems with the septic tank or soakaway at your property, you might be wondering whether it is in need of repair or replacement.
It is possible that some problems with your septic tank can be resolved quickly and easily – for example, by emptying the tank if it is overflowing. Firstly, check out our guide on what to do if your septic tank is overflowing, hopefully the problem can be sorted out easily.
If getting the septic tank emptied doesn’t get rid of the problem, then it’s important to get a septic tank inspection carried out as soon as possible. A full inspection will tell you exactly what the problem is, and most importantly what needs to be done to put it right.
The good news is that the costs to repair or replace your septic tank might be covered by your existing buildings insurance – and we can look after everything for you. We are the only UK specialists in managing insurance claims for damaged septic tanks, and are authorised by the Financial Conduct Authority for claims handling.
From registering a claim all the way through to getting any works undertaken, we manage everything on your behalf. The only cost to you is any excess due on your policy.
We make sure that our customers don’t have to pay out for costs that they have already paid an insurer to cover, so call our team today to find out more, or watch our video about how we manage a claim below.

What our clients say
I was unaware of the service offered by UKDP until I was referred to them by the drainage contractor whom I had approached to get a quote for repairing my septic tank. UKDP took up my insurance claim and followed it through with my insurers, keeping me informed every step of the way and successfully ensuring that it was dealt with speedily and that the repair – a full septic tank replacement – was done in record time, as I was in the process of selling my house. I am extremely impressed by the professional, courteous and effective service provided by UKDP"
Mrs M, Berkshire
We wish to express our most sincere thanks to UKDP and in particular to their Senior Claims Manager, Rob Brindley, for the tremendous help and support he has given us over the last 11 months. Rob and his team have fought and won a hard battle for us over our lengthy insurance claim. They have been available on the phone every step of the way, through some very stressful moments! We really don't know how we could have managed without their friendly and professional expertise - I imagine we'd have given up! We are indeed indebted to you and cannot recommend UKDP enough to anyone facing similar septic tank problems."
Mr & Mrs C, Norfolk
A quick note to thank you and your team for the way you handled our claim regarding the ‘septic tank’ issues with our insurance company, the whole process from start to finish was absolutely terrific and worry free, furthermore I would also like to extend our thanks to Tony Hooper of ‘MTM’ and his team (Jamie and Brett) for the way they executed their expertise for the whole process of the installation being carried out."
Mrs S, Buckinghamshire
UKDP have, from my first contact with them, been very helpful, informative and re-assuring even when all hope seemed lost for a favourable outcome. Their in-depth knowledge and sheer determination made our claim possible where I feel sure most companies would have given up! All of the company’s representatives I have dealt with in person or on the telephone have been so friendly I’m going to almost miss talking to them. I really cannot sing their praises enough and would recommend them to anyone in need of their help."
