Septic Tank Maintenance

The importance of preventative septic tank maintenance is often underestimated when it comes to keeping any system efficient and functioning effectively. Septic tanks provide an economical and practical wastewater treatment solution but require regular maintenance to keep them working in optimum condition

By carrying out routine maintenance on your septic tank, you can help prevent it from becoming blocked and save yourself from costly repairs or replacements. It's important to ensure that your septic tank is pumped out regularly (approximately every 3-5 years) in order to keep it in good working order and reduce potential problems. .

Keeping up with preventative septic tank maintenance is a great way to make sure your septic tank and its components remain efficient and function effectively for years to come.

Septic Tank Cleaning

Septic tank cleaning is an essential task for homeowners with septic tanks. If not done periodically, the septic system is prone to clogging, and may fail to work properly. Cleaning your septic tank is necessary in order to ensure your family's safety and health.

Our septic tank cleaners perform a thorough cleaning of the interior of your septic tank to remove accumulated tree roots and any other debris. Once cleared, we will conduct a thorough hose and scrub down, as well as inspect the inlet and outlet baffles and lids to ensure they are in good working condition.

Proper septic tank cleaning can help prevent system failures and costly cleanup and replacement of the tank. Rely on the experienced septic tank cleaners at Express Wastewater Solutions to ensure that your septic system is functioning optimally. You can trust us for professional septic tank cleaning services!

Septic tank being pumped out

Septic Tank Pump Out

The septic tank collects and breaks down solid effluent, turning it into sludge. This lets the liquid waste part flow safely into underground areas called absorption trenches or leach drains. If not regularly pumped out, this sludge can accumulate and harm your septic system. That's why it's crucial to have a septic pump out, and cleaned, periodically to maintain its proper functioning.

You should pump out the sludge from the septic tank every 2 to 5 years before the septic waste sludge fills up to about 30% of the septic tank's space. Septic tank pumping should be done regularly in order to avoid septic tank problems such as clogging up the pipes and overflows, which can lead to an expensive repair or replacement, or damage to your home.

Septic tanks require regular maintenance to maintain their functionality and avoid costly repairs. The following are the main maintenance requirements them.

Standard septic tanks:

  • Pumping: Remove sludge, scum and other buildup by pumping regularly every 2 to 5 years
  • Inspections: Periodic checks identify any damage or obstructions in the drainfield and tank
