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?
Whether you are installing a drainage system at a new property, or replacing an existing septic tank, we can help. There is a lot of legislation around the correct installation of septic tanks and soakaways, and our specialist team at UKDP can manage everything for you.
If you have a septic tank and simply want to make sure that it is ticking along as it should be, ask us about our Septic Tank Health Check – think of it as an MOT for your septic tank. It’s a great way to reduce the possibility of future problems with your septic tank and soakaway.

What our clients say
The successful outcome of the claim which you conducted on our behalf is the result of your hard work and patience. Your refusal to accept the insurer's contentions of the cause of the damage and your tenacious insistence that your own professional knowledge and opinions were correct finally prevailed in a difficult and complex matter. We are most grateful for this result of these efforts on our behalf."
Mr J, Oxfordshire
Great sensitivity shown to the feelings of the customer. Without UKDP finding a contractor for us, this would have been a big problem."
Mr T, Lincolnshire
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."
Mrs L, Commercial Property - Norfolk
"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.""
