Every area has a septic tank emptying service. You have to fill out a request form and pay for the service yourself at your local OrBorTor or municipality office. The wait for the service is usually not long, about a day or two, as they can empty about six tanks a day.

The cost is about 400 baht per tank. Companies and factories, however, are charged 250 baht for the first cubic meter and 150 baht for each additional cubic meter.

Sudawan Thanomklom, owner of a private septic tank emptying service replies:

You can call me at 081-8941583 for septic tank emptying anywhere in Phuket except Patong. To empty a septic tank will cost from 1,000 to 1,200 baht and the service will be completed within a day of calling. My office is in Moo Baan Chao Fa opposite Dowroong Wittaya School on Chao Fah East Rd.
