Periodic pumping and cleaning of the septic holding tank are absolutely necessary in order to keep your system functioning properly and prevent costly repairs in the future. Regular maintenance also ensures that no issues will arise with the surrounding environment. Overflow of gray water goes off into the drain field and if left unattended, percolates down through the layers of soil to be returned to the groundwater. In order to preserve the quality of our groundwater, it is imperative that your system must be in good working order at all times.
The standard holding tank holds approximately 1,000 gallons, while the average household use is 400 gallons a day. In order to handle variables in usage and prevent blockages which may alter the holding amount, the drain field must be clear and functioning for the septic system to work. Our professional bleaches and detergents kill bacteria that keep the system functioning at its best, while our enzyme treatments can help aid the breakdown of substances, which may create issues in the future.
