SEPTIC TANK CLEANING

Most local health departments have codes requiring septic tank cleaning at specific intervals.  Medina County requires cleaning intervals to be 3-5 years. However, most tanks need cleaned much sooner.  A septic system is an important and expensive investment, and regular maintenance will prolong its life.

Most septic systems consist of one or two septic tanks or an aeration tank, or a combination of both, together with some sort of filter system.    Some systems also have a sump pump.  We've included some basic information here on some of the common types of septic tanks.   If you have one not listed and would like more information about it, please e-mail us or give us a call and we'll try to answer any questions you may have.
