Prompt Friendly & Dependable Septic Tank Service
Periodic Tank Servicing
The main way to avoid Septic System failure is periodic tank servicing. As time progresses, retention times within the tank are reduced substantially; sludge layers at the bottom of the tank built up over this period are within reach of the tank outlet.
Although, your septic system may appear to be working for a long time without maintenance, it will eventually "crash" leaving the Soak Line/Hole full with sludge.
Replacing your soak line/hole is more expensive and intrusive than servicing your tank regularly.
As a rule of thumb, every two to three years your tank needs to be serviced.

The Septic Tank Mushrooms
The mushroom vents the drain from the home to the tank only. It is NOT for cleaning the tank.
Never have your tank cleaned through the mushroom. This removes only water leaving solids/sludge in the tank.
If your tank has been "cleaned" by going through the mushroom, you need to have it cleaned properly through the lid to avoid damage to your soakage.
