SEPTIC  TANK  CLEANING  



Most local health departments have codes requiring septic tank cleaning at specific intervals.  Mandatory pumping/cleaning intervals have been replaced with regulations based on percentage of solids in the tank.  These levels need to be checked by a licensed Service Provider, which you may already have a contract with.  A Service Contract will soon be required based on the new State of Ohio laws.  We are a licensed Service Provider and a quick call to our office can get you set up with this Service Contract. 


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.
