Septic tank repair, installation and maintenance in Scotland
The UKDP team works throughout Scotland 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 Scotland?
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.
Are you looking to install a septic tank in Scotland, or does your current septic tank need a little TLC?

What our clients say
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."

Mr G, Somerset
Dealing with UKDP has been completely hassle free from start to finish. Not only were we kept informed of progress of our claim at regular intervals, Rob was exceptionally supportive and very effective in settling our claim in a very short space of time prior to completion on our house sale. I couldn't thank UKDP enough and would not hesitate in recommending their services to any of my friends or colleagues. Thanks very much once again. We complete on Thursday - but it wouldn't be happening without your help."
