Septic Tank Installation A septic system is an underground onsite water treatment system that treats and processes the wastewater that flows from a home or building. Any structure that is not connected to a public wastewater system needs a septic system installed. Even with a connection available to public wastewater, having a septic system can still be beneficial in so many ways. With advancements in onsite wastewater technology, even the term ”waste” may be turned into “Reusable” in the future. While we are able to provide full-design built septic systems, we also install retrofit Bacteria Generation systems in existing tanks and cesspools. While many or most existing systems benefit from Aerobic bacteria and remediation technology, we have the ability to perform septic to sewer conversions from start to finish. Having a quality and properly installed and functioning septic system can help you save money and lessen your impact on the environment. If your septic tank or system isn’t working properly it can cause extensive damage to your home and property. We remove the anxiety from necessitating regular pumping and overflows and backups, causing several different problems. Never ignore these 5 signs. Bad Odor A bad odor around the house or property can indicate that your septic tank is full or overflowing. Standing Water Unrelated To Irrigation Or Rainfall The pooling water can indicate that the water in the septic tank can’t be absorbed into the ground. The water can cause further damage to the tank and the water can become contaminated with hazardous waste. Old System Septic systems typically last from 5-20 years without maintenance or technology, every septic system has to be replaced or repaired eventually without today's technology. Groundwater Contamination Bad Bacteria from septic tanks can contaminate our ground or water without proper treatment. The hazardous toxins from the waste can make our groundwater toxic and unusable. Since this is a severe problem, upgrading, replacing, or repairing your septic tank is a must. Slow Drains If your sink, bathtub, or toilet is draining slowly - especially if all three are at the same time - It could be a sign of septic trouble.
