Septic Tank & Grease Trap Maintenance/Pumping
Septic tanks and grease traps require scheduled maintenance for the system to operate efficiently as well as increase longevity. Septic tanks should generally be pumped out every two years, depending on the occupancy of the home/building, etc. This will help prevent sludge from building up and clogging your drainfield. For grease traps, its common to have them set up on a monthly, quarterly, or semi-annual maintenance plan. Our technicians will ensure the tanks get pumped out properly and will leave the area free of any debris or waste by-product.
Septic Tank Installation and Repair
Whether you are installing a septic system for new construction or a repair to an existing system, we only install tanks from manufacturers in the state of Florida that are certified with the Florida Department of Health. Generally, we use concrete tanks, however, there are circumstances where a “tank setting” truck can’t access the area where the new tank will be located, so we are required to use a different material tank. Outlet filters and solid deflection devices are the most common thing that requires repair in septic tanks and grease traps.
Risers are a great addition to any septic system or grease trap.They make access simple for septic tank and grease trap pumping/cleaning. Generally, risers will fit on any septic tank, regardless of the material of the tank. Give us a call today for a quote!
Drainfield Installation & Repair
The drainfield is where the effluent from the septic tank percolates down through material and soil before making its way to the aquifer. Just like rain water is filtered naturally through the earth’s different layers, septic effluent is filtered the same way. Most of the time, drainfields fail due to improper care of the system. Pumping your tank out regularly (every two years) will prevent buildup of solids in your tank, which if they become too high, can move to the drainfield lines, clogging and straining your system to the point where a new system is needed. We offer all different styles of drainfields and can accommodate any size residential or commercial building.
Installation & Repair of Lift Stations
Wastewater lift stations are facilities designed to move wastewater from lower to higher elevation, particularly where the elevation of the source is not sufficient for gravity flow. Key elements of lift stations include a wastewater receiving well (wet-well), often equipped with a screen or grinding pump to remove coarse materials; pumps and piping with associated valves; motors; a power supply system; an equipment control and alarm system; and an odor control system and a ventilation system. Whether you are installing a new lift station or need a monthly maintenance plan, give us a call and we would be happy to work with you.
