Here is a list of common questions that our clients ask us. If you need more information don’t hesitate to get in touch with us.

How often should I pump my septic tank?

A general rule of thumb is 3 to 5 years. A lot of things such as the number of people living in the house, the amount of laundry that is done, the age and condition of the leach field. Call us for a discussion about these items and we'll give you our best advice!

If my septic system is failing, how much will it cost to replace it?

Septic systems can be compared to your automobile, when your car needs a tune up you don't junk it, you service it. Septic systems can and need to be serviced and maintained. In many cases a failing system can be repaired by replacing or repairing portions of the system. Neglecting to service a septic system only shortens the life of the system and most certainly leads to the large cost of a new system.

My drain lines make a gurgling sound and we have an odor when we flush the commode or do laundry. Do I have a septic or drain line problem?

You have a drain line that is about to plug. The build up of floating material in the tank becomes thicker and more like a crust as time goes by. This build up of sewage can cause the drain line to plug over several months time.

Why can't I flush baby wipes down the toilet?

The only things that should be flushed are human waste and toilet paper, they will decompose. Things like baby wipes, hand sanitizer towels, feminine hygiene products all contain plastic and plastic mini fibers that do not decompose. Once they enter the septic tank they will flatten out and combine with floating sewage and living bacteria in the tank and fuse together to form a floating crust that resembles a piece of carpet that gets thicker and tougher to remove as time goes by.

What do I get when you do a septic inspection?

You don't get surprises after you buy the home! We look at the plumbing in the house to make sure drain lines go where they should go. We make sure there is a lid to access the septic tank at ground level so you know where the tank is, and make sure the tank has been pumped before you buy. We evaluate the tank itself along with leach or filter beds.
