Depending on the loading of your septic system, we recommend you have it pumped every two to three years. Other factors include system usage and what goes down into the system. The septic tank separates the liquid from the solids, and the liquids go out into the drain field.
If you have a new home out in the country, you will want to know the location of your septic system. Let us locate it for you. We can find the proper paperwork at your town hall and use it to locate the system without rupturing gas or power lines, since a septic system is buried six to eight inches under the ground.
Once we discover where your sewer pipe exits your basement, we can begin locating the system. Dead grass on your back lawn is a good giveaway because of the heat and enzyme action caused by a septic system.
