Pumping & Maintenance
Septic tank cleaning is an important step to ensure your system stays in good working order. A qualified technician must clean the tank to reduce the sludge level on a routine basis.
The structural integrity of the tank must be inspected. The tank must be uncovered to expose the top and sides to ensure the tank is not leaking and contaminating the surrounding area to waste and bacteria normally present in the system.
Don’t wait for a problem to arise and risk damaging your system permanently. Once the signs begin, time is of the essence. Your home and property are at risk.
