Septic tank repair, installation and maintenance in Cheshire
The UKDP team works throughout Cheshire 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 Cheshire?
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
Can I take this opportunity to thank you for the work you have done on behalf of [Charitable Organisation] in getting this claim settled. It has been a long drawn out procedure but the outcome for us is fantastic. If we had not won this settlement the cost of replacing the tank would have had to be taken from funds that were for drains and outdoor equipment which we had raised over the last two years. We are indebted to you and will certainly be promoting your services and the help you and Envirocare have given.."
Mrs F (on behalf of a Charitable Organisation), Manchester
I just wanted to write and thank you all at UKDP for all your help regarding our insurance claim.
We are so pleased with it now it is all finished and such a huge worry off my mind at last.
Thank you all so much."
Mrs B, Wales
In December 2015 I found that my septic tank had stopped working, I employed a local drainage company to inspect the tank and find what was wrong with it and correct the fault. The said company carried out an inspection of the tank and surrounding drainage fields and reported that the tank had sustained accidental damage to baffles. The drainage company then approached my insurance company but also Rob Brindley at UKDP and the process of placing the matter with my insurance company began. My insurance company sent out a loss adjuster (who advised the claim should be declined)
After 11 months of having no working toilet, my insurance company have admitted liability and our septic tank is being replaced.
Both my wife and myself are indebted to Rob and his team at UKDP not only for their splendid persistence, the constant & friendy support and continuous communication at every step of the way!"

"Just wanted to let you know that Dean and Robin from Flow Patrol arrived here as expected on the 30th November and everything has gone really well, they finished the job today and left me at about 2pm. I have thanked them very much, but thought it worth letting you have feedback too. I have been very impressed at the way they have managed he job, the co-ordination has been brilliant with everything arriving as programmed hence them managing to finish the job and leave the site clean and tidy in such a short time. I cannot say in words how grateful I am to Angus and Rob (at UKDP) for looking after me when I was, and still am really, in such a vulnerable state, they sorted everything out for me which was much appreciated. I had been very concerned as you know so am grateful for all your assistance..Thank you to everyone concerned.""
