About Lancs Tanks

Our Team Of Septic Tank Experts

We are a family-run business that started out in the mid-1990’s emptying septic tanks for businesses in the South Ribble area. As part of this work we encountered all sorts of problems with various types of septic tanks, blocked drains and sewage treatment plants which we would fix or advise how to fix.


The business grew and after investment in plant, machinery and training we finally had the skills, experience and machinery to carry out complete installations of septic tanks and sewage treatment plants. As well as installing septic tanks and sewage treatment plants we also offer sewage treatment and septic tank service plans.


We pride ourselves on our quality of work. We don’t cut corners and we don’t make hidden charges. We aim to deliver good value for money to our customers, this then generates work through customer recommendations.
