Septic Tank & AWTS Pump Outs – South East NSW

Having your tank pumped out every 3 – 5 years is key to maintaining your Aerated Wastewater Treatment System or septic tank. Over due pump outs cause systems to smell, block up and accelerate the usable life of your irrigation and disposal area.


Why septic tank system pump outs are important

Having your tank pumped out every 3 – 5 years is key to ensure the longevity of your Aerated Wastewater Treatment System (AWTS) or septic tank. The sludge that collects in the tank over time needs to be removed to enable the system to keep working effectively and to ensure your system and tank does not smell or block up.

How to know if your septic tank needs a pump out

You should be having your septic system serviced regularly by an approved agent such as BluenGrey. At your regular services, the technician will inform you when the sludge in the tank has reached a particular level and the system needs a pump out.

You should also check your system regularly for any warning signs, such as bad smells. See our checklist of common septic tank system problems to see if your system is healthy.

Rod's expertise is exceptional

We would like to thank Rod for all his guidance and patience while we were investigating water and sewerage systems, and asking a myriad of questions. We had never built before and knew nothing about what we needed for water and sewerage, so Rod was a fountain of knowledge. His expertise has been exceptional. Both the water tank and the sewerage system were installed hassle-free and passed Council inspection without any issues. We look forward to an ongoing relationship with Rod when he visits to do the necessary checks and balances of our sewerage system.

BluenGrey are a great ‘one stop shop’ service at competitive prices

Having made the decision to move to a semi-rural property at Yass we investigated options for our grey and rain water requirements. We approached BluenGrey who provided a range of options for us to select from. Their personal and professional approach, which included on-site meetings, ultimately led us to choose to proceed with BluenGrey who offered a ‘one stop shop’ service at competitive prices. The installation was trouble free and their follow-on service and advice has been excellent. We are completely satisfied with the BluenGrey services and have no hesitation in recommending them to future customers."

BluenGrey were very helpful in every respect

 From our initial conversations through to final installation BluenGrey were very helpful in every respect, and courteous and obliging with regards to my requirements. Work commenced on time as planned with pictures texted through to us during the installation showing progress. All in all job a well done with zero issues. I would recommend BluenGrey to anyone considering waste disposal units and / or rainwater tanks.

I can't recommend BluenGrey highly enough

BluenGrey are an absolute pleasure to deal with. Their Service Technicians are always professional and reliable, and I like to know that our wastewater system is looked after so we're always meeting our Council's regulations. I feel reassured knowing I can call on them should I have any worries about our system, and especially that they can respond to emergencies.
