How do you know if your septic tank needs repair?

– If you are noticing that your drains are clogged more often, this could be the result of solids building up in the tank or something obstructing the flow of liquids to the drain field.

– Do you have wet spots on your lawn? Wet areas can indicate weak or broken baffles within a septic tank. Water is leaking through the tank, and this can contaminate groundwater.

– Do you hear gurgling or bubbling sounds coming from your drain field? This could be a sign that liquids are escaping through an opening or broken section in the septic system’s line.

Septic tanks are crucial for your home and business, especially where city sewer hook-ups are unavailable. A septic tank works as a holding area for wastewater where bacteria goes to work breaking down dirt and debris.

Septic tanks are typically located either underground or in the ground, although there may be situations where septic tanks are above ground. The septic tank is an important part of your home’s plumbing system that provides vital services such as keeping septic waste away from groundwater and stopping seepage, but they need to be properly maintained to last a long time. Septic tank cleaning is one of the most important aspects of septic tank maintenance.

To properly clean a septic tank, special septic tank cleaning equipment is used. This septic tank cleaning equipment agitates the septic waste and water, which helps remove any solids from the tank walls and prevents solids from entering your septic drain field. This septic tank cleaning process is important to ensure your septic system can last for years and will not break down over time.

Locating a septic tank can be tricky! Many septic tanks are buried underground. You may not have been the first owner of your home or property and may not know where exactly the septic tank or drain field is located. We can help!

How can you locate septic tanks? One way to find septic tanks is by conducting a perc test. A perc test will show the depth of your septic tank and where it’s located. Another method of locating your tank works by using underground cameras inside of a non-intrusive access point to see where your septic system is located on your property.

Sewer and drain cleaning is a dirty job, but somebody must do it! If not, grease traps will become so clogged with grease and grime that they could overflow into your kitchen or bathroom. And if you have ever smelled the stench of sewage, then you know why you want to keep that smell from entering your home or place of business. Proper maintenance of these systems ensures longevity and efficiency are maintained.

Grease traps must be cleaned on a routine basis. Grease traps are installed to prevent fats and oils from entering the sewer system. The by-product is a solid or semi-solid at room temperature called “fatberg”. This fatberg can cause clogs in your lines which may lead to overflows into your house or business through drains that were previously free flowing. If you have an older system that was constructed without grease traps, then this may be all the more reason for you to consider having them installed before problems arise.

Today’s sewer systems are being built with many more joints than older systems, which means that there are a lot of places for grease to build up. This creates the perfect environment for rats and mice who can not only cause damage but also spread disease through their droppings.

It is important to have your drains checked regularly as well. If you notice any change in the flow of the water or pressure in your drains, this may be a sign that something is blocking it. Even if you are experiencing slow drainage, this could be a sign that your piping system is being corroded. And while having it repaired may seem costly, allowing the corrosion to continue unchecked can cause even more expensive damage in terms of potential sewage overflows and further repairs.

All these systems should be checked regularly to make sure they are operating as efficiently and effectively as possible. If you have any questions or concerns about your sewer system, don’t hesitate to give us a call! We can come out for an inspection that will help keep your home healthy and safe.

If you’re about to purchase or sell a property, you’ll want to make sure that all the important components including your waste disposal system are in good condition.

Septic tanks and sewer systems are vital for your home and business. The septic system is self-contained within your property boundary. The sewer system is connected to the city wastewater treatment facility. Which does your new property come equipped with? Not sure? We can tell you what you are connected to. Whichever your property has, it is important to have it inspected properly. A-1 Septic offers specific Real Estate inspections to ensure you know what you’re getting before making that big purchase.

Septic Tank Inspections: Septic tanks are usually located in the yard or far away from where people will be living. A professional A-1 Septic inspector is going to check many different factors of the system including a visual inspection of the sump pump, discharge pipe, and cesspools or leach fields for proper function. The septic system should operate smoothly and quietly.

Septic tanks are supposed to be pumped out about every three years or when the system is filled with waste solids, whichever comes first. We will check to see if the tank has been pumped as a condition of the sale.

Sewer and Drain Cleaning: Sewer system inspections are just as important as septic tank inspections because the sewer runs around your property, and it is connected to the city wastewater treatment facility. You’ll want an inspector who can tell you if the system has been properly maintained, make sure there aren’t any sewer issues and that your property is ready for its new owners. We will check sewer traps for proper drainage.

Sewer drains are supposed to be checked yearly by a professional drain company. That’s us!
