From the main sewer line that drains all the wastewater from your home to your septic tank to the pipes leading to the drain field, there is potential for broken or damaged pipes that can cause issues with your septic system. With professional pipe repair services, your septic system will be functioning properly again in no time.
Sewer systems are extremely susceptible to clogging due to the waste that they process. Whether you have a clog in your main sewer line or clogging in the septic pump or drainfield, our team uses state-of-the-art equipment to clear the clog quickly and effectively to avoid further damage to the septic system or your property.
Your septic tank is made up of many different parts and components that work together to separate, filter, and process the wastewater and effluent from your home. If one of these components has failed or a leak in the tank itself needs to be repaired, our team is here to assist you and get everything back up and running.
The baffle filters are found within your septic tank and are responsible for filtering out waste, debris, and other contaminants that you don’t want going into your drain field. If these filters are not properly cleaned and maintained, they may end up damaged and needing repaired or replaced to ensure that no further damage is done.
The pump station transports the wastewater from your septic tank to the drain field. This component is an extremely vital part of your septic system. If it is failing to function properly, wastewater will not be able to leave the septic tank, which can cause sewage to overflow or back up — causing costly damage to the system or your property.
Occasionally when there is an issue within your septic tank, it can also cause your drain field to become contaminated with solid waste or take away its ability to properly treat the wastewater. When this happens, the wastewater may begin to build up, which can cause major health hazards — creating the need to restore or relocate the drain field.

Remember that anything you flush or put down a drain in your home is sent through your septic system. A good rule of thumb is if you don’t eat it, or it’s not regular toilet paper, then don’t flush it.
Failing to have your septic tank pumped will cause it to overflow pretty quickly, which can lead to a number of costly repairs. Most average sized tanks with average use need to be pumped every two to four years.
There are a number of things that can affect the lifespan of a septic system. Most systems last anywhere from 15 to 40 years. To help your septic system last as long as possible, be sure to have it regularly inspected, cleaned, and maintained.
