We offer installation of new septic systems, repairs of existing septic systems, and maintenance inspections of your system.


​NEW SEPTIC SYSTEM INSTALL


​Every situation is unique. Unlike many of our competitors, we also have extensive experience in grading and site preparation, allowing us a thorough understanding of water movement and landscape position, and how both can be critical to a properly functioning septic system. We will use our knowledge and experience to design a septic system to best suit your needs.






​SEPTIC SYSTEM REPAIR


We understand that life is expensive, and owning a home can be an expensive endeavor. We will recommend the most minimally invasive solution for your septic problem. We do suggest regular maintenance and inspections as the best defence against major problems in your septic tank. If it is too late and you are already having issues we would be happy to help!





​SEPTIC SYSTEM MAINTANENCE


​As we mentioned above, we know how expensive home ownership can be, and we know that replacing or repairing a misused septic tank can be one of the largest costs a homeowner can face. Regular maintenance and inspections of your septic system can offer you peace of mind and many years of trouble free septic system operation. We offer septic system inspections, and can often recognize and repair small issues before they become a big problem.





​Here are some Do's and Dont's to remember when owning a septic system:


Do:

  • Conserve Water. Avoiding overuse helps to maintain the beneficial "sludge" layer in the tank which is needed for proper treatment of solids.
  • Keep trees and shrubs downhill of the septic bed.
  • Let grass grow at least 3" high above the septic bed to promote better absorption of discharge.
  • Use a lint filter on your washing machine, reducing the solids that tend to clog septic beds.
  • Look for phosphate-free liquid detergents or concentrated detergents.
  • Use basket strainers in showers to catch hair - which causes a big problem for septic beds!


Don't:

  • Flush paper towels, facial tissue, coffee grounds, tea leaves, fats or grease, cigarette butts, filters, sanitary napkins, newspaper, disposable diapers, condoms, metal items.
  • Use a garburator. It adds solids that can be flushed into your septic bed
  • Bury your septic bed under landscaping materials such as plastic or pavement, water must be allowed to evaporate for the bed to work efficiently.
  • Drive or park vehicles on top of the septic bed
  • NEVER pour chemicals like paint, solvents, thinners, nail polish remover, kerosene, antifreeze, gas, or oil down drains. These can seep into ground water and poison the drinking supply
