How to maintain a septic system

A highly rated Angie's List service provider describes how to properly maintain your septic system and drain field. Here are five tips to help.

Cleaning a septic system needs to be done every couple of years.

Septic systems

Septic systems are commonly used in rural areas and sometimes in areas not served by a municipal sewage system. Septic systems absorb household sewage and distribute the liquid waste into a designated leach field where natural processes can reclaim it. However, solid wastes and grease must be pumped out of the septic system periodically.

Just as your car requires regular maintenance, your septic system needs maintenance on a regular schedule as well, says Mills. (Photo courtesy of Angie's List member Diana N. of Chicago)

asked me again to explain what was happening and how long it had been since tank was pumped and which bathroom was having problems with the gurgling. He dug tank lid up and sure enough it was full. He had me flush every toilet one at a time so he could see how water was flowing.There was a clog at the master toilet line. He ran water through lines and a huge clog came out. FYI, don't use flushable wipes.

I was having difficulty finding the tank/lid. Their service technician stopped in twice to assist me in locating the lid, then came back to actually pump the contents. All was done very well and they returned the next day to put riser on the lid.

came out and checked the site himself and recommended a couple of different options for the job. Once we had the plan figured out he worked with my schedule and actually got the job done faster than I expected. By the time his guys were done all my yard needed was some grass seed and a bit of water to get it into better than original condition.

He came out 10 minutes earlier than the scheduled appointment which was great for me. He was courteous business very business like. He found my septic tank and pumped it out in less than an hour. I am very pleased with the service and I will use him again.

I recently moved and realized the house has a septic tank, which is a first for me. I found
Colfax Septic Tank Services Provider Name Locked
on Angie's List and called them to schedule. Very nice lady on the phone, gave me all the information and pricing for different scenarios. Next morning an upbeat gentleman calls to confirm that he would be there. When he arrived I explained I didn't even know where the tank was, he said "no problem, I will find it" and sure enough a few minutes later he has found it and is pumping it. He cleaned perfectly afterwards and left the grass intact. I recommend them.
