What does septic pumping involve?

Septic pumping is the process of removing sludge from the bottom of the septic tank before it creates a blockage to the outlet pipe and drain field. We take a comprehensive approach to septic pumping. During the job, we will perform a routine septic inspection to ensure everything is functioning within your system. We look for cracks in the tank, check water levels, and make sure the baffles are still present and not damaged. This thoroughness helps prevent costly, unexpected repairs.

What are the benefits of septic pumping?

The biggest benefit of septic pumping is saving you time and money. Septic issues can cost a homeowner thousands of dollars in repairs. Preventive and routine pumping preserve the integrity of your septic tank and leech lines while preventing backflow.

How can I prevent issues with my septic tank?

There are several ways to prevent septic issues, the most important being regular pumping and inspections. In addition to professional septic services, there are things you and your family can do to keep your septic system running well. This includes:

  • Spread your laundry washing throughout the week so your tank does not get purged and your leech line isn’t taking in all that water at once.
  • If you are redoing your landscaping, do not plant trees close to your septic system. The root system of the trees can penetrate your tank and leech line, resulting in costly repairs.
  • Take showers instead of baths. The surge in water from a bath can disrupt the tank’s settling and cause clogging in the soil pores.

What items should not be flushed?

Many items on the market say they are flushable when in reality they can disrupt the ecosystem of your septic tank. Take care to never dispose of anything in your system that can easily be put in the trash. This will prevent unnecessary problems! These items include:

– Wet Wipes
– Feminine Products
– Excessive Amounts of Bleach
– Cigarettes
– Grease

Do additives or cleaners help my septic system work better?

It is a common misconception that using additive and cleaners can make your septic system work better. The truth is, these additives may be causing long-term harm to your system, as it prevents natural enzymes from doing their job.
