Helpful Information about Septic Tank Pumping

HOW OFTEN SHOULD YOU PUMP OUT SEPTIC TANKS?

Septic Pumping should occur every 3 years for best upkeep. Pumping is an important and necessary tool to maintaining your system – call us to set up your next pump out.
 
Our technicians inspect your system during each pump out and provide a report which outlines the health of your system. Maintaining your septic system doesn’t have to be difficult – and we want to do whatever we can to make sure you know what is happening with your system and help prevent any future issues.
While cutting the roots is a temporary fix – it really only exacerbates the issue in the long run because just like any plant – when you cut it, you are only “pruning” it which encourages it to grow back bigger and stronger.
 
Killing roots is the only truly effective way to control roots in your sewer system so that they don’t keep causing problems.

WHAT IS OUR ANAEROBIC CONVERSION SYSTEM?

What is it?

It is a system that transforms your traditional anaerobic septic system (a system without oxygen) to an aerobic system by continuously pumping oxygen into your septic tank.
Why would you convert your system?
There are numerous benefits to converting to an aerobic system, but here are just a few:
  • It reduces h2s gas, which is corrosive to concrete.
  • It energizes the bacteria in your system to digest organic material at an exponentially greater rate. This greatly reduces the amount of bio solids getting into your drain field and also helps maintain the health of your drain field.
  • The pumps we use are the quietest and most energy efficient pumps on the market. They run cooler than other pumps, which help elongate the life of the pump.
  • When we convert your system, we also install an effluent filter. An effluent filter helps stop bio solids from getting out to your drain field – this is critical to keeping your drain field healthy and working properly.
How does installation happen?
A small pump is placed outside your home (connected to an outside GFI box). An air hose is trenched (placed underground) from the pump to your septic tank.
