A septic tank is one of the most expensive parts of a home. Keeping yours in proper order can save you costly expenses down the road and allow you to avoid the unpleasant odor and mess that can result from a failing septic system. At Steve's Waterworks Plumbing, we provide a full range of septic services. In this guide, we'll describe each in detail.

Services We Offer

Our septic services cover the entire lifecycle of your septic tank. From routine cleaning to necessary repairs, all the way to the replacement of the tank with an all-new system. Here's a breakdown of what we offer:

Septic Tank Cleaning

In addition to inspections, an important part of regular maintenance is pumping the tank. It's recommended that you get your tank pumped every 3-5 years. This process removes any solid build-up that hasn't or can't be broken down by the septic system. Those solids might otherwise cause blockages or other slowdowns that decrease the efficiency of the system, cause the system to fail entirely, or result in environmental pollution.

During the cleaning process, we'll pump out the entire contents of the tank. We'll then transport them for safe disposal according to local regulations. With the tank pumped, we'll also inspect it for any signs of damage or wear that may require additional maintenance solutions.

Septic Tank Maintenance

Like nearly any part of your home, your septic tank requires regular maintenance. Without it, the tank will fail quicker, resulting in costly repairs and possibly accelerating the timeline for an even more expensive septic tank replacement.
Septic maintenance includes regular inspections and preventative measures to keep the tank operating at peak efficiency. During a typical maintenance visit, we'll check the system for signs of leakage, ensure the tank's baffles are intact, and verify that the system isn't overwhelmed by the amount of water being put through it.

The maintenance process isn't limited to the tank itself. We'll also check the drain field's condition. Any unusual odors or wet spots could indicate problems with the system that need to be addressed. We'll also examine any access ports and covers to ensure that they are secure and maintain the seal required to keep the septic system functioning properly.

Septic Tank Replacement

Sometimes, repair isn't a practical solution to septic tank problems. In these cases, septic tank replacement is called for. Cracks, leaks, or severe damage that undermine the tank's integrity and functionality may make replacement a prudent solution. During a replacement, we'll remove the old septic tank and install a new one.

To begin, we thoroughly assess the existing septic system before beginning the excavation process required to remove it. Then, we'll choose a new tank based on the soil conditions, the size of your household, and any local regulations that may impact the decision. With an appropriate tank chosen, the installation process begins.

The new tank will bring renewed life to your wastewater treatment. It will not only be more efficient and effective but, depending on the age of your system, it may be significantly more environmentally friendly than your previous tank.
