  • Septic Pumping

    Septic pumping is a very important step in maintaining your septic tank system. A septic tank is typically installed for a business or residential area because there is not access to a public sewer system. A Septic Tank is a large tank that is installed underground to hold all waste that is delivered to it. Theses tanks come in various sizes. Typically the city or county has specifications as to what is required for the size of the domain and the number of bathrooms in the facility. Your county/city permitting will have details, requirements and specifications.


    If your septic tank system is pumped on a regular basis you should be fine in terms of maintenance.DO NOT poor bacteria killing chemicals into your septic system such as acid or paint thinner!






    UNDERSTANDING YOUR SEPTIC SYSTEM

    Besides pumping your system when needed there are other actions to take to also help take care of your septic tank. DO NOT flush foreign objects as tampons, paper towel, maxi pads down your toilet. REMEMBER if it won’t dissolve in water it will eventually need to be pumped out. Also DO NOT allow GREASE down your drains. Even in small amount this can be a problem in the future. And when designing your landscaping know where your septic system is try to avoid planting trees near your septic system and leach field/pits. Tree roots are a very common cause for damaged pipes.

    UNDERSTANDING YOUR PLUMBING LINES AND WHAT MAY CAUSE A CLOGGED LINE

    There are many signs that you may need sewer jetting at your home or business. For example, at your home you may experience slow water drainage in your bathroom sink, kitchen sink, shower or bathtub. There can be a variety of reasons that may cause a clogged line or a build up of some kind in your plumbing line(s). Your shower drain may have a build up of hair combined with shaving cream, conditioner, soap scum residue and mineral deposits and after weeks or even months of this repeated over and over may cause a build up in your drains therefore possibly needing a sewer jetting service. Your kitchen may have food debris or solidified grease stuck in the line therefore causing water flow and drainage problems.

    Below are just a few of the simple steps to follow that will help you and your pipes.

    SOME SIMPLE WAYS TO TAKE CARE OF YOUR PLUMBING LINES -

    1. When preparing food in the kitchen try not to allow large pieces of food to go down your drain also NEVER poor grease down your drain (most common mistake) When the grease cools it hardens into a solid therefore clogging up your drain.

    2. Another very common mistake but a very important one - DO NOT flush tampons down the toilet. Tampons expand in your pipes therefore obstructing the pathways for flow. Although this may seem strange or unsanitary, that is not true at all. Most public facilities furnish their bathrooms with trash receptacles for this very reason. If your at home or at another residence simple wrap the tampon in toilet paper and place in the trash can.

    WHAT IS SEWER JETTING?

    Sewer jetting is a simple process which involves the use of a high pressure hose and water. The pressure is between 2500-4000psi and 3 GMP to 20 GMP. During the jetting process the pressure can be adjusted as needed The hose is put into the line with the problem and the pressure loosens the clog then either pushes the debris back up to be removed by a pump truck otherwise known as a "vacuum truck". This process can also be used for GREASE as well. This process is simple and cost effective. Your pipes will be running like new again!
