When one or more parts of your septic system go bad, you may need to replace all or part of that system.
After we perform a septic certification or septic tank pumping, our technicians will be able to tell you the condition of your system. Many factors can contribute to your system failing, including the amount of people living in your home, the amount of water running into a system (i.e. a running toilet can quickly overload your tank and secondary system), the condition or type of the soil around the system, and if cars are being parked over the system. The septic tank can begin to deteriorate or become crushed. This can be a dangerous situation as a sink hole may develop. The soil around the secondary system can become saturated, not allowing any more water to be absorbed. This can cause the tank to become overloaded and may even back up into the house. In these situations a new septic tank, secondary system (seepage pit or leach line), or both will need to be replaced. Other problems that may require repair are when the headline (the pipe that connects the tank to the house) or tail line (the pipe that connects the septic tank to the secondary system) become damaged due to deterioration, tree roots or other complications.
New homes being built may also require a septic system. We install new systems to your builder's specifications.
