It's What We Do!
Fast. Efficient. Professional.
Your Septic Tank Requires Regular Care
Periodic Pumping is a must to remove debris and sludge from the tank. While the EPA recommends having your septic tank pumped every 3 to five years, this depends on the size of your tank and how much wastewater is running through it. Modern Families create more wastewater than we used to, so what used to be a typical 3-5 year maintenance schedule may now be an every 2-3 year expense.

MAINTAINING YOUR SEPTIC SYSTEM
You'll find that our flat rates for regular maintenance fees of $295 to $400 every two to three years is a bargain compared to the cost of repairing or replacing a malfunctioning system, which can cost between $3,000 and $7,000+ for a conventional system. If you have an alternative system, replacement can cost even more!
Remember, the frequency of pumping required for each system depends on how many people live in the home, the size of the system, and other factors. Following the guidelines suggested in our Modern Home article will help you extend the life of your system and reduce the frequency you need maintenance.
A well-maintained septic system helps keep you, your family and neighbors healthy. Household waste contains disease causing bacteria and viruses plus high levels of nitrogen and phosphorus. Your properly working system will remove most of these pollutants.
Insufficiently treated sewage from septic systems can cause groundwater contamination, which can spread disease in humans and animals. Improperly treated sewage poses the risk of contaminating nearby surface waters threatening swimmers with various infectious diseases, from eye and ear infections to acute gastrointestinal illness and hepatitis.
Protects Property Value
A septic system in disrepair or deemed unusable will lower your property value. You may be required to replace it with a new system that can cost thousands and if you plan to sell your property, a system in need of repair can greatly reduce your selling price or even hinder the sale going to close.
It can also potentially pose a costly legal liability if fumes or leakage is not repaired in a timely manner. Septic fumes and wastewater can cause respiratory problems or a list of diseases. See This Article
Protects the Environment
Ground water of untreated or poorly maintained septic systems can pose a danger to drinking water and the environment. A malfunctioning system releases chemicals, bacteria & viruses toxic to local waterways. When these pollutants are released into the ground, they eventually enter streams, rivers, lakes, and more, harming local ecosystems by killing native plants & fish, which can have major environmental effects within a community.
More than four billion gallons of wastewater are dispersed below the ground’s surface every day. Well-maintained septic systems can help support greener, more sustainable communities.
