I don’t know the precise location of my septic tank. Will this be a problem if I need my tank pumped or serviced?
No. We can locate the septic tank by either water probing or use of electronic equipment.
Can my septic tank be cleaned out using the 8" pipe that sticks out of the ground?
No. There are two (2) large lids on top of the tank. These lids are lifted off the tank during clean out. The 8” pipe that sits above ground is used to clean sewer lines. It is not possible to thoroughly remove all of the solids and scum from the tank through a small clean out pipe. Thus, the large lids must be removed and the tank cleaned through them.
Does adding additives to my tank extend the time between servicing?
No. In reality, additives do more harm than good since they interfere with the natural decomposition of solids in the tank.
What is the size of my tank?
90% of all residential tanks are 1,250 gallons.
How long does it take to service my tank?
Approximately 1 to 2 hours.
Do I have to be home during the service?
Yes. We do prefer that someone is home at the time of service. This will allow you to know where your tank is for landscaping, driveways, or building projects. Customers can also assist us by running water during the process to assure that the system is functioning properly. Payment is due at the time of service.
What are the wet spots that I see at the location of my septic tank?
This could mean that there is damage done to the drain field due to the neglect of not servicing your tank on a regular schedule or that the soil has a very poor percolation rate.
How do you expose the septic tank?
We use a small back-hoe. We need at least 6′ clearance around the tank to operate this machinery.
How can I pay for your service?
We accept cash, checks, Master Card, money orders, or Visa.
