Septic tank repair, installation and maintenance in Cumbria
The UKDP team works throughout Cumbria 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 Cumbria?
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
Thank you for all your help, we are so very grateful. The workmen were excellent!"
Mrs C, Preston

Mrs M, Preston
Very diligent and professional at all levels of the organisation."
