Septic Tank Repair
One of the best ways to keep your septic tank in the best condition is to get regular maintenance. While its an important septic tank service, it can be easily neglected. This is because our septic systems are located underground, so when something is out of sight, they are typically out of our mind. Because a septic tank is full of sludge from when the solids were removed from the wastewater, it is so important to get proper maintenance. When maintenance is neglected, it can cause issues with your septic tank. Some of the issues that septic tanks can develop are roots growing in the septic tank, the tank splits in two, the wall starts to corrode, and the tank can become too full. Even when these problems are happening, it can be hard to determine if the septic tank needs repairs since it isn’t visible. However, if you notice these things, its times to get repairs.
- The lawn is lush and green
- You are smelling foul odors
- Your drains are slow
- There is pooling water around the tank and drain field.
Sometimes you might only need your septic tank pumped or cleaned, but it’s worth it to call a plumber in order to make sure your septic tank isn’t damaged. If the septic tank is too damaged, then we will need to replace it with a new septic tank. One way that our clients can make sure that their tanks aren’t too full is by using BioOne. BioOne is an EPA approved cleaner that is made if all natural enzymes. Enzymes are needed in the septic tank in order to break down waste. Without the proper level of enzymes, the septic tank can’t break down waste and will become too full.

These enzymes will remove any organic waste so that the septic system isn’t too full.

To keep your septic tank in excellent shape, you will need to get septic pumping every so often. Septic pumping is when a plumber uses state-of-the-art equipment to remove the sludge and liquid that is in your septic tank. The reason that this is so important is that over time, the sludge and liquid will start to accumulate. Septic tanks come in various sizes, but over time they will need to be emptied in order to avoid sewage backups and slow drainage. Because the septic tank is located underground, it can be hard to know when to get septic pumping; it is recommended that every three or five years you call someone to come pump your septic tank. If you haven’t kept track of when the last time you had septic tank pumping, then that makes it harder to determine when you need it pumped. However, if you notice the following things, it’s time to get your septic tank pumped
- There are unpleasant smells coming from the drain field, septic, tank, drains, or toilets.
- A pool of water is by the tank and the drain field.
- The drains in your kitchen and bathroom are very slow
- The toilet is flushing very slowly
- Your yard by the septic tank and drain field are very lush and green.

Another septic system service that you will eventually need for your septic tank is cleaning. A lot of time septic pumping and cleaning are thought of as the same service, but they are actually completely different services. With septic pumping, you only remove liquids and sludge, whereas septic cleaning is when all of the water and sludge is removed from the bottom of the septic tank. Each of them uses a vacuum truck to remove waste, but when it comes to septic cleaning, it is going to remove a lot more than if you get pumping for your septic system. If you aren’t getting frequent septic pumping, then you will need to get cleaning services for your septic tank. The septic tank needs to be pumped every three or five years to remove the sludge, but if it goes past three or five years, the sludge at the bottom of the tank can become compacted and thick, requiring the need for professional septic cleaning. The following are signs that you need to get septic tank cleaning right away.
- Foul Odors
- pooling water
- Slow Drains
- Slow flushing
- A lush and green patch of grass around tank and drain field
