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
A very helpful, friendly and completely stress-free way to submit, justify and settle my insurance claim. I have to admit to some initial scepticism about a service that almost sounded 'too good to be true' – but good and true it was! Everything was handled smoothly and professionally, and all I had to pay was my excess. Another happy customer."
Ms S, Warwickshire
We first contacted UKDP just looking for advice on a septic tank issue, instead they took on our whole case and fought it for a year against difficult insurers including through appeal and ombudsman. Their customer service is brilliant, we were kept up to date throughout and their persistence and help was incredible - I would recommend UKDP to anyone experiencing similar issues.
The problem is now sorted, with a new tank system installed and over £10,000 of septic tank works completed and funded by the insurer, which would never have happened without UKDP. Not only that, they arranged all tests and works with no hassle for us. Thank you so much for your help."
Mr P, Wiltshire
It's difficult to express exactly how fantastic the service was we received from James and his team. Always professional, always available with excellent communication skills. What James doesn't know about septic tanks isn't worth knowing. His attention to detail, knowledge of the system and desire to ensure a fair and proper outcome makes him a pleasure to work alongside. We cannot thank him enough for all that he did for us."
