Frequently Asked Questions

If your home or place of business is not connected to a municipal sewer system, the first part of your residential wastewater system is a septic tank, which is where all the waste that is flushed down the drains is collected. The majority of underground tanks have a capacity of roughly 1000 gallons.

To keep your septic tank working effectively, it should be examined yearly and pumped every two to five years.  Call us today to schedule an evaluation and appropriate a maintenance plan.

Regular maintenance and septic tank pumping are the two most important things you can do to extend the lifespan of your home's septic system. There is one additional thing you may do if your tank is currently being cleaned and examined. Make sure nothing that will make it more difficult for your system to function goes down your drains. Avoid using paints, oils, fats, rubbish, and hazardous chemicals.

Your septic tank's location is crucial since it affects how well it will function. When choosing where to put your tank, keep the following things in mind:

Keep your tank away from the base of a steep hill. The water will surge downhill during a downpour and could fill your tank. As a result, your wastewater may enter your home and result in plumbing backups.

Your septic system's effectiveness can be significantly impacted by the quality of the soil. The rate of soil absorption needs to be high.

The layout of the area. Both natural and man-made structures on your property can harm your drainage system. Avoid these locations, which include trees, structures, and water sources, in order to protect your equipment from damage.

Your system will often just be unavailable for a few hours while the connection is being established from your old system to the new system.

We advise against planting any trees too close to sewage systems. If you wish to plant trees close to the septic area.

A septic system can last anywhere between 15 and 40 years. This is due to the fact that a septic tank's lifespan is influenced by a variety of elements, such as its construction, whether it has been harmed by groundwater inundation, vehicle traffic, or obstruction by roots.

The kind of septic system you have installed has an impact on the life expectancy as well. Three of the most typical system kinds and problems each system may experience are listed below:

Steel septic tanks will eventually rust out, and how soon it happens depends on a variety of things, including how acidic the soil is and how well-maintained the septic tank is.

Concrete septic tanks have a far longer lifespan and can last anywhere from 40 years to eternity if they were built properly and with high-quality materials.

The size of the drain field, the soil's rate of percolation, and the frequency of use are only a few of the numerous variables that affect this system's longevity.
