Frequently Asked Questions

How often should I have my septic tank serviced?
ANSWER: You should have septic pumping service every 2 to 3 years. More frequent servicing will depend upon the age of your system, how much water your system is handling on a regular basis, how many people live in the home, and the condition of your system.
What does "proper working level" mean?
ANSWER: Proper working level is where the water level in your tank meets the outlet T of the tank. As water enters your tank it should push water out of your tank through the outlet pipe. Even after one week of septic pumping service, your septic tank should return to a "proper working level" about 1 foot from the top of the tank. Your septic tank will hold liquid in order for the separation of solids and liquid to happen. Only the liquid (or grey water) should flow out to the leach field pipes.
What does it mean when it’s wet over my septic?
ANSWER: You should contact us if you are experiencing ponding or damp soil of any sort around or near your septic tank or leach field. There are a number of possible reasons for a wet septic. For instance, an over full septic could cause a break out from the cover of the tank. A break in the line from the tank could cause a septic breakout above that area of the pipe.
What is an aerobic system?
ANSWER: An aerobic septic system is one that contains a mixer in the tank which will agitate and aspirate the liquid in the tank. This will insert oxygen in the tank which will help keep the live bacteria in the system from dying. Bacteria will flourish and keep eating away at solid matter in the tank to allow for less sludge build up and more grey water in the leach field lines. /dd>
Will there be odors while and/or after septic pumping serviced
ANSWER: There can be odors immediately after the septic pumping service, but they should not last long. The odors are usually outside and will disperse a few hours after the setpic pumping service.
