In today's "green" world, septic system customers are fully aware their septic system represents one of the many ways they interface directly with the environment. A septic system, in modern terms is viewed as an appliance. It performs a service as a part of the lifestyle experience in our homes and businesses. Only with responsible decisions in the care and maintenance of your septic system will ensure a positive impact on precious ground water.
Your septic tank must be pumped regularly. For our customers this happens automatically and at different intervals. How often your septic tank must be pumped is determined by the physical size of your tank ( its volume ), the number of people it supports, the frequency of showers, laundry, flushing, etc., how much inorganic material is introduced, the design and condition of your leaching field and the type of soil in the area of your leaching field. The accumulated solids in the bottom of the septic tank should be pumped out every three years to prolong the life of your system. On-site systems must be maintained regularly to stay working.

Neglect or abuse of your system can cause it to fail. Failing systems can:
Cause a serious health threat to your family and neighbors,
Degrade the environment, especially lakes, streams and groundwater,
Reduce the value of your property,
Be very expensive to repair,
Place thousand of water supply users at risk if you live in a public water supply watershed and fail to maintain your system.
Septic Tank cleaning and Pumping Services should be performed regularly. Eventually, your septic tank will have too many solids in its tank and the septic tank will need to be cleaned of those solids. If these solids are allowed to accumulate, they will enter the draining process and clog in the drain field. This will lead to unsafe unsanitary conditions. Maintenance is the key to extending the life of your septic system. If you have questions our staff will be happy to explain the operation of your septic system.
