Septic tank repair, installation and maintenance in Suffolk
The UKDP team works throughout Suffolk 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 Suffolk?
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
Very professional service with a wonderful outcome!"
Mr V, Suffolk
We would like to thank UKDP for all of the support given throughout our claim, with a special mention to James. James in particular seemed to ‘go the extra mile’ in making sure the best outcome was achieved. James was always very professional throughout, but it was his approach to making sure we were satisfied as customers that made the difference."
Mr B, Suffolk
We wish to express our most sincere thanks to UKDP and in particular to their Senior Claims Manager, Rob Brindley, for the tremendous help and support he has given us over the last 11 months. Rob and his team have fought and won a hard battle for us over our lengthy insurance claim. They have been available on the phone every step of the way, through some very stressful moments! We really don't know how we could have managed without their friendly and professional expertise - I imagine we'd have given up! We are indeed indebted to you and cannot recommend UKDP enough to anyone facing similar septic tank problems."
Mr & Mrs C, Norfolk
I'm not a drainage expert, and when we knew we had a problem with our septic tank that might be the subject of a claim I engaged UKDP. We live in the north of Scotland so access to experts in this field is sparse, but we were delighted when UKDP said they had agents that operated across the UK and could help.
They sent their expert up from Nottingham to assess the issue and took the claim on. It was a complex matter but throughout the process it was dealt with with the utmost professionalism. Even when the insurance company backtracked on their offer UKDP pursued the claim through the FSA and secured payment - plus compensation!
At no point were we asked for a fee and were kept informed of progress at all times. I cannot recommend this extraordinary company highly enough; honest, professional and prompt."
