How often should I have my septic tank pumped?2022-10-24T11:45:41-07:00

Every four years, for a household of four is the best schedule to remember. You should have your septic tank pumped more frequently for larger households and less frequently for single user households.

Can I overload the drain field or pump by doing multiple loads of laundry in a short amount of time?2022-10-24T11:45:41-07:00

Yes. It’s best to spread out washing laundry, dishes and taking multiple showers over time, especially with older systems and in rainy conditions. Allowing time for the system to recover between uses will help keep it healthy and functioning.

Do you inspect septic tanks?2022-10-24T11:45:41-07:00

Yes. Note that Kitsap County requires a certified inspection report for all septic tank pump outs.

Should I install a septic tank riser?2022-10-24T11:45:41-07:00

Yes. A septic tank riser is a pipe made of either plastic, fiberglass, or concrete. It creates a vertical portal at the ground surface for easy access to the septic tank for inspection and pumping out. The lid is then either left exposed or with a very thin layer of soil and grass over it.

A riser is beneficial because it makes your septic tank more assessable. It also helps you save on labor expenses if there is an issue with your septic system.

Can you help me locate my septic system?2022-10-24T11:45:41-07:00

Yes. Our drivers are equipped with electronic devices to help you locate your septic system. We also have access to online septic reports and locations.

Can I plant trees and shrubs near my septic tank?2022-10-24T11:45:41-07:00

No. You want to keep your septic tank and drain field away from any invasive or oversized roots. These roots could damage your system over time.
